There is a set layout for this quilt, hence the varied number of blocks ... however you are under no obligation to follow it.

What would everyone like me to do ... wait until a set time for the Big Reveal ... say the Beginning of October??

Or email you privately with the layout, under terms of strict secrecy,  when you have finished the blocks to prevent you having to wait unnecessarily ??

Assembly has stalled on mine as my foot pedal well truly died (tho' I think it was pushed  >:) ) and Im hoping the new one will be here by the weekend when I will finish the top and start the layering.

Also still havent thought of a way to stretch four 54" x 3" strips to border a 64" sq quilt ... Without halving them lengthwise of course

Any suggestions ????????  :thinking:

Add 5” of contrast to either end of strip.

Personally I reckon it's a lot simpler for you to do one reveal- you do have  a life outside TSP and faffing about with oneatatime emails will take a lot of it. Just my thought. :D

I will just go with the Flo and wait for the grand reveal,
I should have the final blocks finished by the end of the week and have backing fabric and a couple of ideas of what to do but will wait and see.

I can't wait to see the layout. I have done all my blocks and had a play but so far can't get a satisfactory layout.  It's the three blocks I am struggling to place  :thinking:

The Reveal is set for Sunday 3rd October!

Mine wont be quilted (or even layered and backed by then) but it is pieced and I will be changing the pieced border that Im so unhappy with to one I am happy with.
