So not finished...
I've been working hard on the second quarter log cabin variation that I showed you in blue mess. Originally I planed to lay it out three blocks wide by four blocks long with 2 inch sashing. Decided then it needed to be a bit larger so it could be used on a twin bed so made more blocks to make it 4 blocks wide by 5 blocks long with 2 inch sashing and a 7 inch pieced border on each side.
I had all the blocks and sashing sewn together when in steps my DH...he likes a the quilt. (good thing...) This is a quilt he wants us to keep. (I give away most of my quilts...) But, he wants it to be large enough to use on a King size bed. Say what?!
I had just cleaned all the scraps and fabric for this project off the cutting table! The only good thing (besides his liking the quilt) is he told me before I put the borders on!
So now the question is do I make it 5 by 6 or go all the way with 6 by 6 and have a 100 inch square quilt....no matter which I'll have to find more of the light blue solid and figure out another backing fabric! (can you believe I actually got ahead of myself and pieced the back for this! Oh well...I am way ahead on a future quilt....)
