    Here is the new design you requested and the updated fabric chart. Part of the piece discrepancy is that each piece of fabric for the borders and binding are included in the total pieces for each fabric.

    I can't download them. It redirects me to another page that basically tells me "There is a problem so we're not gonna let you download this." Plus one file is 4000kb...that'll take me FOREVER to load.

    I forgot to tell you that I had to flip some of the blocks in the outside rows of your black and white line drawing to get your design to work to match your black and red picture. I attatched a grey and red copy so you can compare them.

    The file is too big for me to download. But I know what you're talking about. See, I made two copies of the design: one on paper and one on the computer. Until now I didn't notice that the one on paper had the swirls going the other direction. When I updated my lined design I went by what I had on paper. I fixed the outlined copy to go with the design I have on the computer and I'll post it when I get it uploaded on Photobucket. Thanks for noticing that! :D

    amma brought to my attention that along with the lined drawing being messed up I got all my blocks mixed up, too. Her rotary instructions should have the correct number of blocks. Give me a couple of days and I should come up with a chart with the correct blocks and pieces.

    For a queen sized quilt, I go with a base top of 60x84. That is 5 x7 12" blocks or 35 blocks. Fits the top of the bed quite nice. Add a 12 inch border and you have 84x 108.

    Might want to trim down the top and bottom borders to 8 inches. That makes the quilt top total 84x100.

    Doable, looks great.

    I like the red edging you have already. As to size, I would go with at least a queen. I have a standard double bed and that size quilt just doesn't have enough overhang, the queen size looks much better. However, I like the new quilted bedspreads and for those I get the double bed size. No matter, your design is terrific and I'm sure your friend will be thrilled to get this quilt.

    With the 94x102 quilt wouldn't I get a queen sized quilt?

    I'm playing around with the borders right now. I'm thinking about doing a thin red and black double border (three strips, two red and one black between them) and then the thick black border I already have.

    Thank you so much for the directions for the Tsunami quilt. I hope to make one soon. It was a lot of work for those who helped and it is much appreciated.

    Sweet! I'd like to see pictures when you get done...I'd love to see someone's interpretation of my design! :D

    I don't think I'll be able to make this quilt. Just the cost of fabric is enough to keep me from making it---almost $50. I just don't have that kind of money right now. If I don't get started on it by next month I probably won't get it done in time for Deni's birthday and I certainly can't make a quilt without the materials, which involves money I don't have. Unless a miracle happens, I don't think I'll be able to make this quilt for Deni's birthday. :(
