JoAnn’s 50% off on entire purchase fabric. Fabric is serged, washed and cut 7″ square for 6.5″ squares. This is the pattern we will focus on.

Monday – 1/8/2017

Finished cutting the 6.5″ squares and put them all in the project box ready for the group to sew together.

Saturday 1/15/2017

K sewed the squares together.  J sewed the rows together.   12 squares per row, 14 rows.

Measures out to 78″ x 91″.

The king bed is 72″ W x 80″ L. It’s preferable that the quilt hang down more on the sides. Since this is a quilt, it doesn’t matter which side is up or down, we will make this 91″ W and 78″ L.  However… the seams are already pressed at 91 L so we will continue construction as if it were 91″ L and pay attention to existing seam direction.

The flat king sheet is 108″ x 102” .  Finished quilt should not exceed those dimensions.  Only have Queen battering in the stash.  90″ x 108″.   Will need to add 12″ – 14″ to the side.

Update on borders:  1/18/2018

There must be a better way to doing borders without all this measuring.  I still don’t know if those measurements will work.  After some searching I found this video by Barb Sackel for Quiltwoman.com.  Borders without measuring I used this method. I also learned how to join the borders correctly.

After 1.5″ (cut 2″) black border attached, Top measures 81.5″ x 93.5″.

After 4″ (cut 4.5″) b/w floral border… check measurement  88″ x 101″

After 1.5″ black border attached … should measure  91″ x 104″

Cut binding at 2.5″
