    I just finished piecing this top this afternoon. It's for my youngest son's best bud's baby sister - who was born cough-last December-cough. Yeah, it's a bit late...

    This was started in 2008 for friend,Peg. She had some scraps of her favorite fabric from the 70's. I made her a tote and the rest of the scraps went here. It was going to be bigger but..... The batik coral is what was left and this is what they grew into. Now to get it quilted. This will be her 60th birthday surprise.

    pattern is PP: Double Pink Kaleidoscope

    I need a pattern that tells me how much fabric I'll need in each colour and the finished size

  6. Mixed Block Panel

    by , 09-02-2012 at 10:51 AM
    I purchased a Animal Spirits Mixed Block panel to make a quilt. Blocke range in size from 3" x 3" to 7 1/4" x 6" . How do I figure out what size to make my blocks? I want to do a wall hanging or maybe a lap quilt.

    I think this looks wonderful. What do you think?

    The windows are 5 inch squares, the frames are 2 1/2 inches, the sashing in 2 inches , first border is 2 1/2 inches and the outside border is 3 1/2 inches (all measurement are cutting measurement).
    It measures 40 1/2 x 43 finished.
