Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Aw, that's a really cute quilt and a great idea, too! :thumbup: Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful idea. :DOriginally Posted by chairjogger
I really like QuiltnNan's pattern.
I think QuiltnNan's idea is fabulous and will work really well with that fabric. Make sure you post photos when you're done!
I would do a snowball block alternating with a 9 patch block using the colors in the dinasour print.
I think I'd fill in the rows with strips of primary colors since they are used in the print.Originally Posted by Quiltgranny

Hi Nan,Originally Posted by QuiltnNan
I went to the dentist this afternoon, and afterward cut out two 3" strips to go with my 4.5" dino strip. After sewing each 3" strip to one side of the dino strip with a 1/4" seam allowance, my finished block is only 9.5" wide. Maybe I shouldn't have done this while on novocaine? :shock: :roll: :lol:
Did I goof, or is it possible that the other two strips need to be cut 3.5" in order for my block to finish at 10"?
Thanks so much,
you know, that's my fault and i'm sorry. i was thinking 4.5 finished, but the strip is 4.5 and finishes to 4.0. then the 3" strips finish to 2.5 each. so your finished block is only 9". and your block before connecting them together is 9.5. you will still be alright on your quilt by the borders you put on it. if you make 4 blocks x 5 blocks, that makes 36x45. depending on what borders you put on, that will still make your quilt big enough for your 7yo. :oops:
