Each square is cut down to 12 1/2 in. So, that would make my finished quilt 62.5x62.5. That is a little short in my book, unless you are a kid. I'm not particularly tall, but I find the standard lap quilt, 50x60in., a little to short to comfortably stretch my legs out for a nap. So, I made the decision to make another row. Plus, I eliminated a couple of my squares I was not happy with and made new ones. Here is what I have so far.
Now is the decision on what fabric to use to bind it all together. Originally I was going to go with black. It would go nicely with all of the different colors. Kinda boring though. I was thinking a small print would be nice. Then I remembered I had bought a couple of yards of this Jay McCarroll Habitat print.
I ordered Leah's Craftsy class! I had it running last night as I was quilting my squares. I know that I can't pay to close attention while I am sewing, but I swear, it was like we were sewing together. Besides, it is my class forever, now and I can re-watch it whenever I want! And there is something to be said about the subconscious. Even though I wasn't watching intently, I was listening;) The pebbling video came in handy when I went to do the pebbling quilt square above. I haven't done to much of that design. I had a LOT of trouble with this design. My quilt kept puckering on the back! See...
* I had great time sewing with you last night, Leah;) Seriously, your Craftsy class is totally AWESOME. You give great attention to detail. You really ARE a great teacher! If it weren't for you, I don't know that I'd be quilting at this level today, if at all. I always wanted to quilt since I can remember. It was not until I found you on YouTube a little over a year ago that you gave me the confidence and skills to do what I have always wanted to. I thank you for that.
I'm linking up with Leah Day today for UFO Sunday's.
Now I am off to the sewing room............bye;)
