I didn't stitch one single stitch on World Wide Quilting Day. That just doesn't seem right for a quiltaholic like me! I'll have to make up for the lost stitching time this week.
Today I have my blue and yellow log cabin blocks on the design wall. I have been sewing blocks together in pairs, then in sets of four, and then sewing together the rows.
I am surprised at how big this quilt is going to be.
Here is the math...
The logs in these blocks are all cut at 1" and when sewn together finished at half an inch. For real!
Each block has 21 pieces and is 6.5" and when they are sewn together the blocks finish at 6".
How many 6" blocks are needed for a bed quilt?
Well, I have sewn 130 blocks and if the quilt is 10 blocks across and 13 blocks down, I am guesstimating it'll be around 84" x 108" without borders. That is big enough for me. I am starting to get some quilting ideas, which is always a good thing to prevent a quilt from heading to the UFO closet!
