Details Of The Summer Quilt

This summer quilt will measure 86" x 86" without a border when assembled.  There will be 41 squares with the 2" color squares surrounding a white square, alternating with 40 (10" x 10") white squares.  There are 656 (2 1/2" x 2 1/2") squares of color printed fabric.  Thank goodness for strip piecing.

I had forgotten how hard it is on ones back to cut fabric strips with a cutting mat and a rotary cutter.  I think I will cut some (4) PVC pipe pieces to extend the table legs, making the table taller.  This way I won't have to lean over as much and kill my back.  The PVC pipe pieces will fit over the table legs at their bottoms.
