Just realised Catlar that your number 2 and 5 and my number 2 and 5 are pretty similar  0_0  Though mine look pretty washed out in the photo I posted.

Initially I thought I'd make the smallest size but I night just have enough to squeeze out the wall hanging size. If not enough I might have to be inventive!

@Catlar: I can understand what your are going through.

First  I wanted to make the crib (whatever a "crib" is, I couldn't finde any translation), but then I looked at the colours and I decided to make something bigger, but I knew right away, that I would have enough fabric.

So I have started cutting and sewing, and my fabric-shop is working on finding more of these fabrics for me  :) She will call me on Tuesday, which size I can gain for ;)

Here is my latest fabric joice (after a last consultation with our "boss" ;)) And the first blocks  :D

@Iminei: Which size are you sewing? ;)

Gonna be dramatic Sakar!!!!

I have made mine already, done finished, quilted, bound...

I started with the crib size, but made it bigger (as all the quilts are different sizes of square and a cot size is a rectangle)
to fit a childs cot (I hope)
