Weekend Sewing

I did manage to sew for a couple hours over the weekend.  Saturday was taken up with watching Johnathon.  I didn't mind that, really.  We played a lot of cards and watched t.v.

I have to say, the closer I get to having all the blocks done for the Christmas Churn Dash quilt made, the more I want to make the quilt just a little bit bigger.  Like about 25 more blocks worth bigger...  I know, crazy, right?  Well, I had extra green and extra red blocks because originally it was just going to be red and green blocks.  Then I decided to add gold blocks, so I have those just about all sewn.  Now I'm thinking it needs to be even bigger for my bed.

The pattern I settled on is a trip around the world.  It was going to be 9 blocks by 9 blocks, but that would only make it 81" square before borders.  Even with borders, I just didn't feel it would adequately cover our king size bed.  So now I'm making it 11 blocks by 11 blocks, which makes it 99" square before borders.  This will work.  I will add a couple borders to it and it will be plenty big.  I hope...

The quilt has taken on a life of its own...  hahaha

They do that! Sounds like a good plan, though. :)
