Lego conundrum

I'm now sewing the Lego blocks together.  Here's what I have so far:

I have more blocks to add on the bottom.  I was planning on having ONE non-railfence block in the next row. Either another checkerboard:

Or this other block:

Whichever one I don't use on the front can go on the back.  Or not.

Maybe I need one more row to make this long enough to cover an adult person.  Do I have enough 1.5 inch strips to make more? [Can always cut 3" strips in half.]

And on the subject of the back..... I'm thinking that this is going to be pretty HEAVY with all those seams, so I'm considering a fleece back and no batting.

What do you think on all these heavy decisions?  Go ahead and weigh in!



None of these decisions are life threatening

A flannel backing might be nice too. I've made a few baby quilts minus batting with flannel backs. Decisions...decisions....

Hi Sara,
I like the look with the second checkerboard added; it seems to balance the piece (in a way).

Nothing wrong with a heavy quilt; it would be warmer that way (but maybe the person it's for wouldn't want it really warm.)

I like the second checkerboard on the front, too. I also like the idea of a flannel back. I would worry that the fleece would be too stretchy and maybe bunch and/or shift when quilted.

The two checkerboards seem to tie the quilt together so well. I'm loving this happy sewing, it's so riotous in color! Great creativity, Sara ~

Everyone warned me about the weight of it too, but doesn't seam all that bad to me (baddum bump). ooh, maybe it's an excuse to use Minkee - I love how that stuff feels... your blocks are awesome. I like it better with the second checkerboard too..
