Woo hoo! Done with all 20 squares!

Unfortunately my quilt will end up smaller than planned, but I don't want to make any more plates so I'm moving on. I smartened up and started cutting my background squares larger than necessary too late. I cut my first few squares to 12.5" before appliqueing and of course now they're too small. To make all the squares the same when I was squaring them up I've had to cut them to 12", so 11.5" finished. I'll have to remember that for next time. After adding my first 3 in-between polka dots I think it still looks good.

9 more dots to go and then some half- and quarter-dots along the edges, then the border.... then the quilting... dun dun dunnnnn....

No school today - better take advantage and get some less-fun grading done.

Are the dots applique? That sounds like work!

I guess this means you need to buy a twin bed or something.. since the quilt is shrinking.. or add really fat borders.. Yeah! Fat borders fix anything!

Yeah, hand applique dots. I'm hoping the border will make the quilt big enough for the bed. Otherwise, Bob the couch will just get yet another shawl :)
