I'm doing a ladder stitch and I noticed in this picture that the blue 1" lines on the pressing board show that the stitches are about 10 per inch.
The fabric for the My Tweets BOM is washed and dried except for the white background. I have 8 yards and decided to cut off 3 yards for the twelve 18" square pieces for the blocks and wash that. Oh... might as well do another yard for the center block. The remaining will be for borders or whatever other design I decide on for the rest of the quilt.
