Hmm, well... I turned on my laptop about 3 hours ago to write this blog post, and in that time I only managed to achieve the purchase of zips from Zipit, and fabric from ebay (of all places!). So now my blogging time is cut short and this will be a rushed kind of rambly kind of post, okay? :-p
So, after joining Rhonda's FAL, and saying that I would work on nothing else untill Paula's quilt was finished, I kind of figured I should stay true to my word.
(The following photo's are rubbish, I do apologize. Despite using my new camera, we seriously had very little daylight yesterday).
I got out all the blocks I've done so far yesterday morning, and was pleasantly surprised that there was more than I though, with less than I thought left to go. Yipee!
I spent the whole day making blocks, and managed to crank out 9 that I was relatively pleased with. I also fixed a few of the existing blocks that were too small (damn paper piecing!).
I think I might be done making blocks now? The quilt needs to be big enough to cover a double bed. I plan on sashing with 2.5" strips, and adding a large 6" border around the whole thing.
So maybe I need one more row and column? What do you guys think? 5x6 or 6x7? I don't really want to have to make another 12 blocks, but if it doesn't fit then I guess I'll have to! Or maybe I make it 6x6 square? Your opinions are, quite obviously, needed please!
It does beg the question, how the hell am I gonna quilt it?!
