I've added another row and widened it with 2" lilac & 2" white borders - will this be big enough?
Measures 51" x 70"
It gets the thumbs up from my daughter - hooray!
But now I have to quilt it, groan!
Before sewing version 1 altogether, I had contemplated doing a technique called 'Quilt as you go' (quilting each block or row separately, and then cleverly joining each row already quilted), but decided against it because I thought I wouldn't be doing intricate quilting and it wasn't that big (then!).
Now that it is even bigger I wish I had gone with my original strategy! This is going to be tricky!
I'm going to ponder for a while over the best way to quilt this - I really don't have the patience for rotating a large quilt many times under a small needle space, so any 'easy but stunning' quilting suggestions you may have would be v.welcome!
