I'm making a red and black Mock Cathedral Window quilt for my fiance for Christmas.
I finally finished cutting out the fabric today. But a few of the red fabrics shrank a little more than others so sometimes instead of getting 5 pieces out of a quarter yard I got 4. So I ended up with 99 red pieces and 118 black pieces. I'm trying to think how I can lay this quilt out.
1. I could do 9 blocks across and 11 blocks down and it would perfectly fit every single red piece.
2. I could do 10 blocks across and 10 blocks down, which would leave an extra space. Instead of the extra space having a red "window" I could put in a quilting label. I wanted to have a quilting label anyways, but I'm wondering if its tacky to put a label on the front side of the quilt.
What do you think?
