My Tigger quilt is currently 38″ x 45 1/2″. I don’t really want to make it much bigger. Sometimes, when I get an idea stuck in my head, there’s no dismissing it! And I envision this quilt on the smaller side.
So, I Googled the dimensions for various, smaller quilts and learned something. There’s no defined size, only general guidelines. For instance, a baby quilt can be anywhere from 36″ square to 52″ square. Honestly, the square aspect is lost on me. In my opinion, a quilt should be longer than it is wide. But that’s just me 🙂
This Tigger quilt, if I finish it off now, can be categorized 4 different ways; baby, crib, toddler and lap. This is according to the information I found online.
If I’m lucky, I can manage a second quilt because I do have another Tigger pillowcase to use again as the center. Although I am rather fond of the black and grey, I’d do the next one with blue denim, just to compare the two, and maybe keep some of the blue border from the pillowcase, which is double-sided. I have FOUR Tiggers!
This one might be more appropriate although I’m leaning toward the other one. And both sheets are only twin size, so I will not be able to get 2 quilts from each (unless I make sure they’re small, baby quilts). . . . . shoot.
Now I must do more pondering and probably alter my plans.
Of course, I could always make the first quilt mine 🙂 and sell the second one! And the third. And the fourth.
There’s a definite dilemma with making one-of-a-kind anything. It’s easy to become attached.
But I REALLY don’t need anymore blankets. . . . . . . or do I?
