How many blocks to make a cozy throw size quilt, you know the blankets we cuddle with on the couch lol! I first thought maybe four? then I saw someone make six for a lap size, then I saw nine , then twelve,mercy when will it stop? lol! so i got all my squares out, & proceeded to start arranging a pattern & made the decision to do nine for my quilt
the granny square block consist of rows of 1 (baby) 4, 8 & 12 , I only had 3 prints left with a count of 12, so I had to be careful if I took of one of the piles of 12 would I like the color combination of the 12 that were left, this this block was born
that gives me a total of 8 blocks, one to go!I had enough to come up with 2 combinations, don’t you just hate decisions, especially when you like them both lol!
so there’s now 8 blocks waiting for their outer strip, making them a 12” block then on to the side strips, batting, & lining ,ohhhh I’m so close! lol!
I think I will go with this one for block number 9
I’ve still got the other quilt to cut out for the quilt along over at quilter In The Gap’s 3rd quarter 2012.
