Well--half-size ladies. I can use all the help I can get. I know it will be just as much work(maybe more) but I just don't need another big quilt. I don't have wall space to hang one that size. So, I will wait and see how you are doing yours. I am going to try and use Photoshop to do the re-sizing but am not adept with using it. Annis just sent me some directions that I am going to try and use--printed them--and see if I can get it to work. Can't hurt to try. I am not as computer literate as others on the site so there may be a better or easier way that I am not aware of.

I just came upstairs to start work on my project and double checked my medium gold piece. It also was only a fat quarter. I am hoping that when the shop opens this morning, they can answer my questions about the missing tan fabric plus the smaller piece of medium gold fabric. It would just be a good idea to doublecheck the fabric along with the instructions.


Well thanks for that reminder! I finished ironing and refolding the fabrics and went through and checked that I had them all. I DID NOT check the quantity. I'll go do that now.

Was there problems getting some of the fusibles like Steam a Seam? I vaguely remember that conversation awhile ago. I will need to get some as I don't think I have enough for all the applique. The other option is to use the glue/liquid thread that one of the guests on one of the shows used to do her applique. I'll have to go back and look for that one.

Andrée, that makes even better sense. I always forget about paper piecing flying geese.

With all those tiny pieces, I will make everything I can with paper-piecing. Especially the Flying Geese!

For those ambitious folks desiring to make the quilt half size, I wanted to let you know that the representative from Bloc Loc (970-635-3005) told me this morning that you can buy the rulers needed to make it "half size." I would think that would be really helpful since you are looking at such tiny geese. I think a half inch by 1 inch flying geese would be just adorable and oh so precious, but accuracy will need to be spot on I would think.

Also, she told me that TQS is selling the complete set of rulers needed if you plan on making the quilt in the size Janet designed it as.

I plan to make this half-size as well! I think it would make a nice wall-hanging, and the block in miniature would be a great visual impact. However, in order not to have "funky" measurements in the blocks, I might resize some of the background/blocks ratio. I'll post when I start calculations... :?

Only when BOM2013 is finished... I'm almost done (85%) on borders 7 and 8, and plan to fuse month 9 this week-end. Hopefully :D

Andrée

Gosh, ladies....I'm thinkin' smaller, too.! A need to fit smaller places for me...lets stay in touch !
This is great! Let's share ideas on this!

I don't need it for month 1, but just want to get prepared.

Oh dear! I haven't got that far. I'll let you know as I start ironing. Some of the pieces are fairly small. Make sure it's not hiding somewhere.

Ritzy, wouldn't half sized be just as much work? Maybe even more because you have to figure it out? Wow, check out the Y, I can't imagine that half sized!

Anyway, I got the background fabrics ordered from three different shops that have an online presence. I pondered the BlocLoc rulers until I saw the price. I'd love to make this quilt without buying anything else but maybe a bit of fabric here and there, and hope to not buy much more of that until we need backing.

I'll prep the fabrics when they come, ponder the stash, but I still have two borders from 2013 left to do. All the pieces are cut for border 3. Yeah!

I may be delusional, but after 2013, this one looks a bit easier by comparison. That's a good thing!
