|Lone Star Quilt awaiting Swirl Art|
This quilt is a behemoth! I thought the final size would be something like 100" square. Not on the life of this quilt apparently. Instead it is 112". What a big beast! At least it will look good on someone's bed in the future. I don't even think this will fit my quilt frame at all. I believe the advertised width max. is something like 106" square so I'll need to measure that and find out.
After I finished squaring this bad boy I realized that if I have the printer print one side of each scrolling edge instead of the entire corner the printer will not have to be as wide as I had thought. Instead of needing a printer that can print 42"+, something that will print 18"+ (most likely the more common 24" printer) width would be fine. So now I just need to check my assumed measurements to the quilt scrolls to be sure it will fit how I was hoping and if not scale the scrolls up a little (Eegads!). But that is surely a job when my arms ache a little less...
I've been so busy with other sewing projects that it really was nice to spend a bit of time on this quilt that otherwise would have stayed put away for another time. Just think I can check off "Square Quilt"! That alone will make it a more welcoming project for next time!
