Trouble with T's

Well I was going to make and "easy? T quilt.  I didn't want just a plain Jane setting so I decided to add to the usual on point design.  I did not know I would be creating such a mess for myself.  I made T blocks and then I made more and more and more.  Once I had all the T blocks and sashings made and the top sewn together I didn't like the width of the quilt.  The length was perfect but the width was lacking so what is one to do. I did not want a large 5" plus border on each side so guess what, I made more T blocks.  Then the question, what to do with the corners.  Well, more T blocks.  I had to resize the corner T blocks and they really did not turn out that well but it is what it is.  I am quilting and the quilt will stay as is.  I have been busy, knitting working, quilting, working, watching football (YEA!!! USC won last night).  Now back to quilting.

Have a great day,

Dot

Wow, I really like this. Did you adlib those smaller T-blocks or is there a pattern out there for this? It's wonderful :)

Holly there is a pattern. I got the pattern from About.com quilting. Single T quilt block pattern. When you see the final quilt, the 4 T's in the corners are the ones I did on my own.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, Dot! I have an "H" quilt and have wanted to make a "T" one for my daughter someday. Yours is fantastic.
