My color selection. Solids I bought for very cheap at my guild's quilt show this past summer.
Pieces for the first part all cut:
Then we were supposed to make squares. Except as you can see I made about half facing one way and half facing a different way...oops. I just assumed since it was a square it wouldn't matter what order I put the pieces together in!
And here are all the bits for part 1! I am excited and having fun. :)
On a side note, my new layer cake came in the mail! Isn't it great? "Mocha Kiss" by Timeless Treasures.
However, the finished quilt is only 41"x57". I could certainly add a border, but it would still be only something like 50x70 unless my border was HUGE. I have made a lot of lap quilts in my day and they never reach my toes when I am trying to lie under them! So I would prefer something a bit larger.
There is also this pattern:
But it would require purchasing of fabric for the background, small pinwheels, and borders, which I might be okay with.
Finally, I am looking at this one:
"Antique Etoiles" from Moda bake shop. Again, this would require purchasing a lot of additional fabric.
Thoughts? Which do you like? Any others you've used with success?
