Star Kissed Quiltalong: Quilt Size Considerations

It is time to decide what size quilt you might want to make.  There are so many options!  Aren’t choices fun?


You will notice that I show “base square” sizes, then the block size those will create.  Then, a variety of size quilts you might want to make along with the number of blocks that will require.

NOTE:  The finished quilt sizes assume a single sashing between blocks and a single border the same width as the base block size.  I do plan to share a few other options later, but this is enough complexity for now, I think.  The baby quilt sizes will be improved with a triple border, for example.

NOTE:  n/a here means, Not Advised.  Just that the block size doesn’t lend itself well to a quilt of that size.  Too big, or too small, or too awkward.  You are, of course, free to give it a go if you wish.  And I am interested to see what ideas you might come up with.

So, what do you think?  What size base squares are you considering?  What size quilt do you want to make?

Next week the first set of directions will be officially published!  YAY!

  1. Thank you for designing this and then sharing. I like the options. I’ve made several of your quilts and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow. Keep scrapping!

  2. I am so excited about this quiltalong. Thank you sooo much for doing this. I love the ones you have shared before. Your instructions are easy to do and understand. I will be using my small squares (1 1/2 inches) that I have had for a while and didn’t know what to use them for. Now I have a plan thanks to you. Looking forward to next week.

  3. Okay, then, we’ll soon be ready to go! Thank you so much, and you know I’m going to do 2.5″ squares. A gazillion are cut and waiting on my windowsill already.

  4. In digging for leader enders today, I found a bunch of 4-patches that will be perfect for this project! So that’s already done. I just have to do the inner squares now. =)

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
