Best tetris quilt I've seen! Love the 3D effect.  Amazing how many pieces you used.

Wow ! This is gorgeous! The colors are wonderful and I absolutely adore the frilliness. I'm not too used to knitting, I've only done simple stuff like sweaters and scarfs ( and one dress in the last long, long winter) and keep forgetting the terms one uses for knitting patterns. But would you mind telling me how to do this anyhow? Or is there a description on the package of the yarn?.. And how many balls did you use?

This will be the easiest thing you've done yet!  It is literally 9 straight stitches with one ball of yarn.  The pattern is on the site I linked. YOu can get a paper copy from the store.  Although, I think there is a typo where it says to put the left needle through the yarn instead of the right.  I used an online video to figure out casting off because I had forgotten how.

I have another to make.  I will take a WIP pic so you can see what its like.

Apparently this yarn is so in demand the manufacturer is having a hard time keeping up.

I recently picked up an old project and made a simple scarf.  Then I was inspired to try something new.

AFter a trip to the knitting store, I had this yarn.  Its a simple 9 stitch but the fabric meshes out on it own to make it look very impressive.

The recipient loved it.  And now I will be hosting a lunch and learn to show others who want them!

Thanks I'll give those a shot.  A friend is getting me a mat that is 18x24" but that wont' cover lengthwise so i might go back to cutting this.

I have a new crafting table that is just over 19" wide.  I have a mat that is 23" wide and would like to trim it because it is nice and long.  Its impossible to find another one that is long and skinny. 

Any advice on cutting it?

Very cool.  Makes me wish I didnt' toss the denim I saved.

I'm starting in London, heading North to Edinburgh.  Details are undecided.  I'm also heading to Ireland briefly.

Might be a good thing I don't find any fabric shops!

that is a fantastic quilt!  how long did it take you?

Fabric cutting was cut down in time since the strips were already the right width.  I would say this could be done in a day.  Maybe an afternoon if you're experienced.
