Okay, I got out the small panel and measured it. From seam to raw edge, all 4 borders are 3". Taking away 1/4" for binding and leaving 1/4" *air* on each side of a motif gives me a width of 2.25" with which to work.
Measuring horizontally, I get 24.5", raw-to-raw.
VERTICALLY, I get 85.25". Is that right? I could have measured incorrectly (there aren't many uncluttered places that are 7' long or longer in my house).
Through some serious math-gymnastics, listening to Mr. Algebra spouting off just like HE hadn't slept through HIS classes, and a touch of pin-the-tail-on-the-fraction, I've come up with a projected motif size of 2.25 x 9.5".
Okay, true confession here: The math-nastics actually led me to 2.25 x 4.75", but when I figured out that I was going to hand-draw FORTY motifs for just ONE of the SMALL quilts, I got inventive. It was either that or a(nother) nap, and it was already 9:30 at night.
Don't bother trying to figure how my figurin' works out. It's kinda like a secret ingredient. Or magic.
Next up, going through 5 or 10 inspiration books for... uh... inspiration.
Do you think that we should share the quilting theme?
