It's Good To Be Easily Amused.
The plan is that the rug should be 40 X 40.
To do that, I need the quilt to be eight squares by eight squares. That's as close as I intend to get to saying that I'm happy to have evenly sized squares.
I did cut two much bigger squares for the randomness. I love the randomness.
So, how do I make it a rug instead of just a quilt? It needs to be stiffer and I'd like it to be not slippy on the bottom. Is there more? I think I'll just use two layers of batting.
Here's my "to sew" pile.
I had so much fun putting the little squares on the big squares.
It's good to be easily amused. Don't let anyone tell you it isn't.
I got halfway through sewing the little squares to the big squares when life intruded. The finished pile is on the left, to do on the right.
