It’s been a busy weekend here. At various times we’ve had Kelli, Kayla, Kalissa and Craig all home. I did get a chance to sit down and see how far along I am with my Garden Party quilt.
The quilt is only 79″ x 79″ as the pattern appears in Quiltmaker magazine. I personally like my quilts all bigger. We have all full or queen sized beds here at my house and rarely to I making anything smaller than 82″ x 82″ so I stopped to take time to figure out how many more blocks I would need if I just made it one row wider and one row longer.
I already have more than enough chain blocks…I need quite a few more of the other blocks.
Now as I am writing this post Kelli is here and said-Hey I think you’ll want even more blocks. That’s when she reminded me that I was thinking I was going to make the quilt without any borders on it….
Oh my. The amount of blocks I need is growing quickly. As tempted as I am to just not make the extra blocks and put a big border on, I don’t think I’ll be happy with it so I’m off to go count how many blocks I need to make it border-less. I thought this quilt would be a quick sew but I am learning different really fast.
