Plans, schemes, and ... um, thesaurus?

So, now that my postage stamp quilt along top is done, the question is what to do with it? I'm not really a throw quilt kind of gal. We have a few around, mostly quilts Jamie's grandfather made for him, and they're mostly used by the cats.

the top now

When it's cold I'm usually wearing long underwear so snuggling under a quilt isn't that necessary. And when it's really cold I just get into bed! So. This 60" x 80" top needs to be rigged into a bed quilt. Did I mention we have a king size? I so need a megaquilter!!!

the plan

So this is what I'm thinking for the top. I've added 2 more columns of the postage stamp blocks to bring it up to 80 by 80, a 2" white border all around, then a 10" border of the scarf print. In real life it won't look as craptastic as the photoshop version, I promise!!! Thank goodness I have until April, there's way too much of this line that I need yardage of.

adios yo,

Pin It


  1. I saw your pics in the quilt along pool. I love how your borders look. It doesn't at all look like "just slap a border on it to make it bigger". :)

    And I'm totally in love with this line. I haven't gotten any yet, but hopefully when the precuts are readily available I can snag some. Love how you are going to use the scarf print!

  2. fabulous idea! i love that scarf print and it is perfect for your border!
