I need to think about the points - some of them are spot on and others aren't. I realised about half way through, maybe I should square off each piece after sewing - it went much better doing this. Just need to be careful not to over do this or it will end up affecting the finished size if lots and lots of slivers are lost to the squaring off process.
I am waiting on 3m of Volume Fleece from JMM Marketing, and fingers crossed, I have ordered the backing from an Ebay shop. Hard to tell if it will be a suitable tone, but if not I will have to think again. I ordered 2m, and the seller has been in touch saying I will be getting 2.5m at no extra as they have come to the end of the bolt. That's nice!
When I worked out how big the quilt would be, I thought approx 36" x 36" was a bit small, however, seeing it laid out, it's quite a decent size - and, my maths wasn't great as it's nearer 40" x 40". Expect the quilting will shrink it back a bit.
