36 Little Halloween Blocks Are Finished!

Hi all!

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?

I would add to the size. Even if I wished I was done. If it is not long enough you will always wish you had went a head and done the blocks.Now you know how great it is will be the needed jolt to finish 12 more.
