Mine finished close to 70 inches square. I chose this colourway, as part my personal challenge was to make it totally from my stash, and I had enough of all the colours. I'm hoping to have it quilted to show at the June meeting.
This is version 2. Once again, it had to be made completely from my stash! The centre block is paper pieced, but I chose to use traditional piecing for the "square in a square" blocks. The final "woven" border was also to be paper pieced, but rather than use 40 sheets of paper, I printed one copy, then made paper templates to tape on the back of my ruler for those unusual cuts. All of the pieces were cut from strips, with the background shapes just using one template, one for the diagonal piece, and one for the small triangles. They were irregular angles, so the paper template method worked great.
Sunday, I managed to machine quilt 2 of the smaller quilts waiting in the wings, and added the binding to both. I also packed a small duffle bag full of leftover fabric from finished projects. Since DH doesn't need my sewing room to store all the train buildings, bridges and accessories this year, I'm still able to sew a bit then pack a bit each day.
