Was thinking of making 63 blocks. I've trimmed these down to 9 1/2 inches, from the 10 square papers I started out with. 7 blocks by 9 blocks would give me a top measuring 63 x 81 inches before adding borders to make it fit a twin/full bed.
Not happy with the selection of strips I'm down to new, so I don't know that making more blocks would be a good idea. Then, again, I don't really want to be left with a bunch of strips...........unless I want to make a piano-key border.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
