Greetings from South Texas where we are having my kind of weather – cold and rainy! What more could I want you ask – TO BE FINISHED WITH ALEXANDER BEAN POT! I am rather tired of it since I started finishing this UFO in late August and that went out the window. I am HOPING to finish it into a flimsy by Thursday (if I beat that day I will be very happy!) I am not sure, but think it will be a 65″ x 65″ quilt! We shall see!
I have decided that this quilt is a lap quilt and will not have to be perfect so lets see if I can just put the quilt together even if something does not match perfectly! Now you may ask “What is that on the right side in the picture?” the last row of 9 patches and strip piecing sashings will go on the left side of the quilt! I am not sure about the border fabric I will use – it is a wait and see game!
I never thought that it would take this long to finish it, but I guess one needs the eyes to work well to sew! LOL I have never counted pieces in a quilt but here goes a count as close as I want to get!
There are 64 Blocks @ 5″ unfinished. Each block has 5 ea – 2″ squares; 16 ea – 1 1/4″ squares; and 4 ea – 2″ strip set consisting of 1 1/4″ x 2″ of light and dark fabrics! For a total of 320 – 2″ squares; 1,024 – 1 1/4″ squares; AND 256 of the 2″ strip sets!
For the Sashings there are 81 ea – 2 3/4″ (unfinished) 9 Patches and 145 ea – 5″ strip sets of 2 darks and 1 light strips @ 1 1/4″ x 5. I am tired, are your? LOL
Have a great day and enjoy stitching.
Hugs to all and if there is a quilter in my little space south of San Antonio Texas who wants to join me in quilting one day let me know – I need a quilting buddy! Anyone outside of Texas is also welcome to come over although it may be a little longer commute! LOL I miss my sister/cousin Kay she was my best buddy!
