We know the quilt is 42 X 60 and that the blocks are 9".
This made me think there are 4 blocks across and 6 blocks down with a 3" border.
We have our ABCDs.
We know it's festive.
Since we have 20 C's I thought they would be used between the blocks as a kind of sashing but only across, not down.
That left the As, Bs, and Ds for the blocks and border.
I had to abandon my idea that we were making pinwheels because I couldn't come up with a 9" block that was pleasing. Finally I came up with a version of the Friendship Star at I think looks pretty nice.
This block will leave plenty of patches for a pieced border that I think will look good.
So that's my guess. Saturday at Sweet P's http://sweetp-paulette.blogspot.co.uk I'll find out how far off I am:) Paulette of Sweet P Quilting and Creations will host the Christmas Quilt Along this month, so join us there. It's always fun.
The ninth block of the Treasure Chest Quilt is Prickly Pear http://www.facebook.com/#!/quiltinaday and mine is finished.
This block is really easy to put together and has a great finish.
Only 3 more blocks and we're done.
I'm going to be looking for a new qal to join.
Or else I can finish all of my WIPs that are piled up in my sewing room.
