    Do you want one large quilt, or do you want to make 2 smaller quilts. It looks like great fabric for a whole cloth quilt--no piecing, except for maybe a border. Cute fabric.

    Nice fabric. I guess the size you make depends on where you want to use it. It's large enough that you have options. Welcome back.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Maybe make a quilt and matching pillow cases or shams with with the leftover piece cut from the width? You could add borders if you wanted a bed quilt. Hope this makes sense. That is really cute fabric.

    That is a rather awkward shape. How about cutting it 72''x72'' and then think about your final size.


    It's nice to see you back I just came a little while ago too.

    Glad you chimed in lol. That size sounds more durable was trying to figure out whether to cut or not. I’ve had the fabric so long I can’t remember where I got it lol.

    figure out on paper the 60x60 and see how many "blocks" you will have left and see if you can make a border with them or sprinkle them in the border. something will come to you.
