Lily's Quilts QAL are all pieced. I thought this might give a better idea of the scale of these plates. They say that if you are trying to lose weight you should use a dessert plate instead of a dinner plate. Wonder how much you would weigh if you used plates this size? So I'm ready for the next step, which is meant to involve piecing these plates into the frame. Mine are a bit smaller than the standard, and apparently there are quite a few folks whose blocks are not the size to fit neatly into template for the corners. Lynne says she will post directions for drafting our own corners. I will watch and wait - perhaps applique will be the way to go. Stay tuned!
If you like the fabrics I used for these blocks, you may be interested in this pack of 5" charms that I cut as I went along. There are about 25-30 squares here. I cut a pack for myself and a pack to share. Happy to send them out to someone who tells me the name of their favourite old movie - older than 1960 - by Friday the 25th. Mine has got to be Singing in the Rain! I can't the embedding code for this, but go here to see my favourite scene: the dance number with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse in that green flapper dress!
