Nine Bigger Blocks



It turns out that my blocks have grown from around 16x19" to 22.5x23.5". This means I will be meeting the goal dimensions without making wide side borders. At the unquilted state it measures about 65x70", and I just need another 20" in length, or three more blocks to make it a twin quilt. I am thinking about not making more blocks, but just two ten inch panels, top and bottom, of strips which will finish it off nicely. I used only a fraction of the pinwheels so that may happen at the borders. As it looks now, one could play Where's Waldo, just trying to find the three blocks that have pinwheels in them.
I am quitting for the day, so I can finish a sweater and watch the Oscar pre-shows. Perfect brainless TV watching.

  1. I'm just doing some knitting myself--a brainless afghan pattern.
    I love the quilt and think it's a great idea to just add panels top and bottom.

    Very interesting combo of fabrics, but the number and scale of designs in the fabrics seem confusing to the eye... which in turn minimizes the effect of the colors. Easy to be critical I guess, and probably more easily seen in a photo than on the wall. Sorry, just my opinion : ) At least you are quilting, whereas I have put my quilting aside because I am involved in other projects. --from Annette in Omaha
