I've been playing with ways to work up "R" and "J" blocks that I could slip into the Quodlibet Quilt, without being too obvious. Each of these blocks will be surrounded by a narrow black lattice, so I laid out the left side to complete the Rs. I want these blocks to be subtle - and with all that is going on in the Quodlibet Quilt - you would have to know to look for them. Then once you see them, you'll wonder how you could have missed them! But SHHHHH....don't tell RJ!
As I was piecing away, I realized I had just designed and executed my first homegrown paper piecing project. I've only done paper piecing once before - and that was with a quilting instructor there to help.
I'm not sure how many blocks to make. The pattern is for a 57 x 74" quilt, but I need to make it extra long cuz the recipient is about 6' 6". I own a bunch of quilting books, but none of them say how large a king size quilt should be. I've seen patterns for queen size quilts ranging from 90-102 inches long, so I'm a bit perplexed! Am open to suggestions....
Keep quilting! :)
