I started off this quilt with honest intentions. Just a large lap, maybe twin size quilt so I could get rid of my charm pack lust.
I was happily sewing away, not really caring where the squares went, except to make sure they didn't touch each other.
That was my one goal for the quilt, no squares must sit next to each other.
I put the whole top together, spread it out on the bed... and wow. It looked fantastic.
It was even matching the fleece sheets pretty well, and my dark green couch in the bedroom.
Country and homey feeling. I asked my husband if he liked the quilt, and he said yes. Hmm.
Why not add on two more rows and make the quilt from 16x20 to 18x20 squares? It's almost queen sized!
Toss in a 4" border, and you get a 89"x98" quilt. Perfect!
So, it grew. It grew into a monster!! :P I had delusions of hand sewing down the binding this weekend. Of washing it next Tuesday. Of sleeping under it Tuesday night. Now I hope to get it done by the end of the month.
On the bright side, 6.5 yards have been used up! Just for the squares. There's still the border, binding and backing to cover. No worries, plenty of fabric here. ;)
