Right before I took my boys to see a matinee of "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" on this rainy Sunday I got these 36 blocks all done!
My 36 Halloween log cabin blocks are finished and I am very happy with the way that they turned out! Now to print off some quilt layout numbers and get them arranged in a setting. I would like to at least get the top done before Halloween - then I will worry about the quilting at a later date. A nice fall print on the back would be really pretty!
Just a few minutes after I posted this blog post I laid the the blocks out, on the floor, and, I realized just how small 72" x 72" is for a bed quilt :-(
The top of my bed is 56" x 76" so the width is fine but the length - not so much :'-( I really love how this is working up but I really feel like I need to add two more rows to the length so that the pattern will be completed and the length will be useful for a bed.
Yup - that means 12 more blocks - not so bad I guess but I really wanted the blocks to be done - sigh. Good news I have a bunch of left-over logs so it's not like I am starting over. Bad news - 12 more blocks!
Maybe the size is ok as it is? Maybe I could live with it? Or, maybe now - If I am going to change the size NOW is the time to do it. Hmmm.............
What would you do? Increase the size or stay the same?
