Sneak Peek

All week I've been squeezing out minutes to work on the quilts for my great-nieces.  This morning  I have a sneak peek for you!  The last border just went on the first quilt top.  Woo Hoo!  The second will not be far behind since they are being made in tandem.

They are alike, but not identical.  The blocks are random. One quilt has pink corners and this one has green, which is an easy way to tell them apart.


There is one problem though....they're too big at 73x94 for twin beds.   Looks like so many queen size quilts have been made here lately that my math was off.  They are one row of blocks too big in each direction.

Options are take apart some of the stitching, remove the extra rows and re-cut the borders smaller OR leave them alone.  Not that long ago I would have not even considered adjusting them, but it seems I have more patience now to get things 'right.'  Now is the time to make a change if I'm going to.

Work has come to a screeching halt.  Decisions...decisions.  Time to call in the advisory teams!
So I'm linking up with Sarah at confessions of a fabric addict. Stop by her blog and congratulate her on her new ETSY shop.
And linking with Amanda Jean at crazy mom quilts.


  1. I vote for leaving them alone. They might be the longer length, but if they end up in a College dorm at some point, they will be the right length. In the meantime, they are just luxuriously sized.

  2. I vote for leaving them be too. And it is a beautiful quilt - pink and green go so well together :)

  3. I think they look fine and the extra size will just add to the luxury of them! Great work!

  4. I vote for keeping them "too" big, too!
    But that's partly because I hate to use a seam ripper ;o)))
