I finished the first column of dino toes for the Walk Like a Dinosaur quilt. But, what you can’t tell from this picture is that there’s a problem… a BIG problem.
I’ve told you before that I often make quilts by the seat of my pants. I don’t worry too much about block size and measurements… quilts end up the size they end up. I focus more on esthetics. And that’s fine… when you don’t already have your backing fabric picked out.
I showed you the lovely dino flannel had for the back the other week. But I only have about 2 yards of it. It’s enough for the back of a baby quilt.
But that column of toes on the left is already 54 inches long. And there’s going to be three of them, which means without sashing (or borders), this quilt is already going to be at least 54 inches square. If I add sashing (which I really want to) and borders, it’s well passed baby blanket, and into lap blanket territory. That’s not a bad thing, but it means the dino flannel is out… unless I can find something to go with it, and make a pieced back.
I don’t think I have anything in the stash, and I don’t think Mom does either. That means buying something online or waiting until Lens can open again.
But that’s fine, I’ve got time. I still have 12 sets of toes to make!
