Outside the box quilt - sizes
 
Hi...I want to make one of these quilts and I know some of you have done it but can't find the posts right now.

I don't have a pattern and I'm pretty sure I can wing it but what I'm wondering is, what width is the narrow bit that seems to float above the squares? Would that be 1"? Or, more precisely, what do you all think would be a good width? I guess I can do what I want and it will just affect the finished size. I want to do a lap quilt but I don't want the 'floating' bit to be too thin or too heavy looking. I'm not sure if 1" would be too narrow or not...that's 1" finished i.e. cut at 1 and half inches.

Thanks :)

The fence appears to be a 6 foot fence...From that it would seem that the floating squares would be at least 2-21/2 inches I think

Is it the pattern "thinking outside the box" by Toadusew? I believe it is done in quarter log cabin blocks. Maybe someone who has made one will help.

Oh...good point. I didn't take note of the fence...lol. I've worked out the proportions, now just need to work out the size of that floating square. I'll work on your suggested 2 - 2 1/2" and see what size it will come to. Thanks :)

That's a different pattern I think, although the name is very similar

Thanks Gingerd...I love the quilt in that link. I think I might go ahead and buy the book too

Janice - i'm very glad you like my quilt. The book has been referenced above as noted by Ginger. There is also a flickr group dedicated to the book which you might find helpful since there are many versions of this quilt design shown within the group. Here is the link http://www.flickr.com/groups/mqa/
