there are 175 squares in total, and they're around 8.5" around, so we'll see how big the quilt ends up being. i really did think that there would be enough, and there should, i guess, but i was hoping for a bit bigger than a standard queen-sized quilt, since both me and the boy (and the dog when she gets the chance) are HUGE cover hogs. we shall see.
now i just need to get some fabric to use as backing. i'm not sure what colour to go with. obviously, white seems to make the most sense, but really, white and i aren't totally the best of friends, for reals. i'm a BIG spillypants. my roommate's suggestion is a really deep, dark purple and i'm also thinking that a dark brown might be nice. but i'll probably end up going with white, and will have another 175 circles to
i also had a friend's little sister come to our stitch n' bitch and she unraveled and balled a gazillion skeins of lovely cashmere yarn that is spent two weeks knitting into a heinous shrug. so now it is all ready to be knitted into a baby blanket...i think. it's ready for something at least. also, it turns out that i LURVE having me the little helper monkies working on the crafting.
