The Quilty Barn Along, sashing

Here are my blocks, all laid out the way I think they look the best.
Four of my blocks aren't red, I patterned them after ones I saw in Quebec and Prince Edward Island.
 I wanted to wait until I finished all the blocks before I sashed them.

I rummaged through my scrap basket and found these strips of fabric for the sashing.  
One of the reasons I love scraps is because they bring back memories of previous quilts and projects I've sewn.
I can see a baby's cradle I made for my grand daughter for Christmas, a baby quilt I made for my grandson 7 years ago, an apron I made for my friend at Christmas, fabric for some baby pants I made for another grand daughter, a doll dress I made, a travel pillow, and so on and so on.
Does it make you nostalgic when you use your scraps?

On Friday, I'll show you my finished quilt top :)
