Not Exactly As Planned – Cinderelly Quilt

Yeah, who doubted my awesome ability to get all those blocks 12.5″ square? You were right! Apparently I started writing the squares in top by sides, then switched to sides by top. It makes a big difference, unfortunately. I was able to trim and piece things together to make blocks that are 12×11.” So not a total waste.

I decided on a 4×3 block layout – the back will be the same horizontal orientation, plus the “story” flows better.

Oh, and yes, that’s my first applique block on the bottom right. 🙂 It still needs its purple stars. The glass slipper is the Fairy Frost Cloud that will be utilized on the back of the quilt, the background will also be in the border of this side, and the outline and words are in a variegated purple thread.

The applique is based on this block. And don’t you love the quote? It’s my motto.

I’m doing the sashing in Fairy Frost Wisteria, because the one thing this quilt needs more of is purple fabric.
