Monday, Day #3 of Make-A-Quilt Weekend – Part #4
After checking with some friends and looking at the quilt top, we decided that it needed to be modified. It needed less length and more width. So I removed the bottom row of blocks, cut the last sashing in half. I took half the sashing and stitched to the top. I took the blocks from the bottom row I removed and added to the side.
Now the quilt top is 13 blocks wide and 5 rows + 4 sashings long. The top now is 45.5" wide and 62" long. I plan to add a 5" border all around. This will make the completed Quilt Top 55" x 72" (twin size mattress is 39" x 74"). So this will be larger than a lap quilt (52"x78") but a smidgen smaller than a twin (64"x86").
Next Step – Purchase fabric for Borders, Flannel for backing & Batting – Will do on Wednesday so the Make-A-Quilt Weekend can continue next week.
