Size:  1.38 MBwhen i sew them together the quilt is really getting a lot smaller. I am going to add two more squares on each row and then a row on top and bottom using all one color on both side that will look like a border. This one is for my husband so he needs it to be a bit bigger,

    Like your quilt, but I now have the refrain from the song "You're a mean one Mr. Grinch" running thru my head

    If you do rag quilts the Go cutter is totally worth it! I have the 8 1/2 inch block rag die and a 6 1/2 square die that I use to cut my left over batting. It's so easy. So glad I do not have to cut the edges by hand. Name:  112_3997.JPG

    Love your quilt. I'm always amazed at how much the quilt 'shrinks' between the design wall and the finished top. All those little 1/4" seams really add up!

    How can you not like anything Grinchy? Bet your husband won't share this one. :-) Great job!
