Design Wall Monday today. I sewed the 7th of planned 8 large rows to the final connector row this morning, and then decided I should really measure the main quilt plus the bit I sewed today... I had this nagging feeling. I borrowed Steve's tape measure and checked. Width is fine for a twin bed at about 67" (it's going to be Tertia's quilt, and she will love all the kitties, bunnies, puppies, and cutesy flowers on it a lot). But length with all of the rows I made would come in at about 110", and that is too long, even with a generous pillow tuck!

Happy Memorial Day! The boys are on a hike; Tertia and I went shopping together at the hardware store to buy a new flag and bracket and some pantry moth traps. Steve put up the new flag and is digging in the garden now. And I just spent $85.00 on a tank of gas for the van, which is why I can't buy more yarn even though I'd like to.
Well, you may have had some problems, but in the end, you will have a very charming quilt, and think of the stories you can tell about the process of making it!
Hey, it looks great, no one is looking at the size! I did a Jack's chain once as a wedding quilt... Had people send me marriage advice and scripture verses on the hexagon parts. It would have come out really well but the grooms relatives got a little too creative and sent me hexagons that were all painted with fabric paint with cutsie frogs and apple trees etc... Um, yea, thanks. yours looks great!
