    Default How to finish quilt to a specific size?

    The quilt needs to be 100 inches long and 120 inches wide. It is now 97 X 97.

    Looking forward to some inspiration. Each block finishes at 14 inches.

    One more row of blocks on one end, then 4 1/2 inch border on that and the opposite end, and a 2 inch border down the other two sides.

    As you didn't either.

    I would add rows to get the length and then boarders. That is pretty much all you can do.

    I never made something that big, that's why I didn't think I could help. Your missing 3'' on length. I don't know If I would bother with it. It's going to get bigger with sashing. Now your missing 23'' for the width. I would make more blocks.

    I believe if you read the second post, you will find that I did.

    Do you have enough fabric for another row?

    If not, maybe an entirely different type of row, Maybe something with applique like a vine with leaves and flowers.

    I would also add another row and then do borders to get the size you need.

    Shirley, who made you the quilt police?? Are you a moderator here?? Why is it that you are always so willing to stir the pot?? This is supposed to be a safe and comfortable place for everyone. Since you like to be snarky, why don't you find a forum of like minded folks since you do not like this forum. If you think this is rude, so be it. Someone needs to set you straight. I am getting tired of you being such a malcontent.

    Maureen Anne,

    I apologize to you for using your question for my own rant.....

    I see that you want this quilt to be wider than long. I make many oversized quilts because I like a long drop all the way around. If you add one more row of blocks to the width, you could add borders on both sides and the lenth only on the bottom of the quilt. This should get you closer to the size you indicate.

    Many times I sketch out the blocks and borders on graph paper to get an idea of how it will look before cutting my fabric. I like your choice of colors and pattern, too.
