I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!

I wanted to get Scrappity-Do-Dah off my design wall, so I finished piecing it together.  I thought it was going to be 18 blocks across (90") and 20 blocks long (100").  I kept sewing and sewing.  It seemed like it was going on forever!  


Well, it turns out it is 24 blocks long - which makes it 120" long!!  Even at 100" it was big enough to tuck in the pillows.  I guess I got carried away!  

I also have some blocks that I will sew into the backing.


I could take a couple rows off and make it 110" long.


It was too big for DH to hold up, so I draped it over the couch and coffee table for this picture.  Don't forget, I started this 5 years ago on a trip to Florida.  I'm going to put it in the closet for a while before I quilt it.

Is anyone having problems with Blogger?  I can't get this to post.  I had problems yesterday also and had to re-type all my words.  *Later*   I think it will publish now.  I had to copy all of it, save it, then paste it on top of what was there, do a little editing and now I think it's OK.

Remember that most King battings are 120 x 120! I'd probably remove a row or two, and make a rocking chair pad. It is truly lovely! Our church group almost got into a similar situation last week, but hopefully we caught it in time. ---"Love"

I can see how you could get carried away with this one. It really is lovely with all those colors in it.

I did have a problem with blogger for my last post. I write my posts in Windows Live Writer and upload them to blogger, but it took two tried to upload properly last time. This was the first time that ever happened.

I love your quilt. I've always wanted to make a quilt using that block. How are you going to quilt it.

BTW I haven't had any problems with Blogger lately. Hugs

I made one of those a few years back as I'd seen it at guild and loved it! It's been laying around all quiltied and everything for quite some time and is NOW in the binding queue and will be up in the next week or so! YAY!

Quilter Kathy said...

Such an amazing scrap quilt... love it!

Katie said...

That's mighty big! But it's so pretty, I wouldn't know what to remove! No trouble from Blogger with me other than it won't let me add another link list for my 2015 finishes, but I'm working with someone to get that squared away...I think...

I haven't been able to even get into my blog role for a couple of days. ugh
I love that quilt. It is so wonderful and colorful and happy. It is really big. I know you will get it quilted and it will be even more beautiful.

Donna said...

Oh, my, I love the quilt! I love scrappy, and yours is just right!

I made one of these several years ago and everybody wants it. This is a great pattern and I'm seriously considering making another one since I have so many charm packs I don't know what to do with. Big is great. You won't be sorry.
