Woot woot!!!

Here is a pic of the rows I have together thus far.



There are now 11 rows with 8 blocks each. So, the quilt top measures 48x66 inches, which sounds out of balance but actually looks pretty good. I'm thinking I might make some more blocks and make the quilt measure 56x66.

Any opinions?????

Scrappy quilts are my favorite and this one is gorgeous. I love the zig zag pattern. Great job!

Libby said...

I love it - reminds me of the zig zag pattern my mom used to crochet afghans *s*

Paula, it looks great. I love the way you used the "other side" of the fabric too.
It looks like the perfect size for the back of a sofa. But I know what you mean about thinking of the finished size and where you will use it. Nothing worse than quilting, binding and then thinking "gee, I wish I made this larger!"

What a fun and pleasing look! I can't believe how quick you put it together.
The only thought on the size I have would be to place it on a bed and see how it fits or drape it on a someone lounging on a sofa and see how it covers...You know my vast experience (Ha) so that may be a crazy suggestion.

I think it looks great the size it is but I am sure it will look great bigger also. I really love the pattern. It looks great as a scrap quilt. Louann

Marvelous! A great scrap quilt. I think I need to make one of these from one of my bins of squares and triangle squares.

Pretty pretty - I just love the way all the different fabrics "come alive" by being combined this way - looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!

Now that's a beautiful quilt! I love it! It looks great now but I think I'd go with the 56 x 66 myself.

Yeah, right on and yippers doodle. I am diggin' this totally 100%. It's likely to become the best one on the entire planet if you consider adding a bunch more blocks. hee!

I think I would add the extra row to make it a little wider. I love how sometimes you can use a simple pattern and still make a stunning quilt!
