I've been spending most of my spare time (other than bedroom renovations) working on the owl quilt.
I layed it out this morning to count how many more hexies I need to finish the bottom row and fill out the top when it gets attached.
|I know you said not to play with the papers, Momma - I'm just holding it for you|
The magic number is 12. If I just add the 12, the half hexies to top and bottom and trim the sides straight then the quilt will be 70" square. It doesn't appear square to me yet, despite my model's best efforts.
My dilemma is if I want to leave it square or add another couple rows to top and bottom to get it to be rectangular.
I've got 27 inches of fabric left so I am sure there is enough fabric left to keep adding hexies.
|Momma says I'm a poser.|
I say I'm practicing to be a spokescat.
Adding the hexies is not the actual dilemma but the concept that the center will always appear rectangular cuz it's a different color. I am currently wishing I had put a single row of a different fabric across the middle of the top and bottom borders just for the effect of drawing the eye up and down the neutral center. There is NO way that is happening now, I'll just file that idea for another quilt.
|Momma also says I'm a pretty boy.|
And I agree!!!
