That is alot of border to make your quilt king size.  When I have a pattern that is for twin and I need a king I add several more blocks to the rows and more rows to the body of the quilt.   Then I add my borders.   I try to get the body of the quilt to measure at least 80 in x 80 in before I start adding borders.

gini:

Annie, are you joining us in the appliqué group? This spring.  We will be starting another appliqué quilt, not a Baltimore, but it is similar and will be very pretty.

I'm in! I'm in! I'm in! Well, if you can promise me we're not PP Appliques, that is! ROFL!

Gini,

Will you let us know when it starts up?

I guess I can keep checking the group section.

Chicago,I agree with gina try just doubling the pattern and then sew then together before you you add the borders, It will be easier if we can see a picture of the quilt .Barbara

Nana:
The only person that will ever see any mistakes is you.   Have fun and good luck.
Nana - that is so true - we do see our own mistakes - lol

Chicago - yes please give us some pictures - some quilts can have several borders added on to them to enlarge them - some just need to be left the way they are and to make the next one a larger quilt - but we can't give you any real advice till we see it...teehee and we love seeing them...

I was going to work on Rita's quilt today - (Rita is my housesitter and furr baby care giver) but alas when I opened the pattern she had given me part of it is not there - so I went on line to the source and Yep you figured it out - I found several more patterns to buy - the one that I needed they can send me as a .pdf so I should have it within 24 hours - the other 2 patterns and yes a kit - lol will arrive next week... when I get them I'll post pictures and we shall see how many of you are enabled to use your checks and credit cards...teehee...

Barbara,

Yes I found it on the spring project thread in the Applique Group just as you said.

Do you know when we'll be starting up?  Should I get the pattern now and wait till everyone starts up again??

Annie

Go ahead and order your pattern and get your background fabric.  That way you will be all set when Gini gives the first block assignments.   I think she is planning on starting about the first of April.

I think gini plans to start in April ,I had gotten mine before she set the date cause they are so darn beautiful . but I'm waiting to do them with her . heck I'd just go ahead and get it it will give you some time to pick your fabric and colors . Barbara

Barbara - Is it posted somewhere here on the site or do we need to go buy it or download it? I joined the group but, didn't see "pages" like in the PP group so I'm not sure where the designs are.
