I am, however, steadily working on completing my pretties - despite the heat. Geesh, one must be seriously masochistic to be ironing when it's nearly 40°C outside, right? My sister definitely thinks so but she's no sewist and it's worth it. I've now finished three sections (two 9x10 and one 9x12) of the anniversary quilt. I have another row of wide strips that I will assemble, then cut in half and add to each side before assembling the section. Even then, the quilt won't cover the sides of the bed if placed like this, though.
As evidenced by the picture above. It should cover everything if placed sideways like this.
Then again, I haven't prewashed my fabric this time around so I'll have to expect some shrinkage which would mean that even put sidesways the quilt isn't a 100 per cent fit for our bed. I will have to come up with an idea to add some more width/length. Maybe a wide strip of solid on both sides (top and bottom in this picture)? I could probably even skip the narrow column on each side mentioned above and save those strips for pillows. Hmm.
Anyway, serious question - which placement do you prefer?
Happy sewing and check out these great linky parties!
