Ok so I just ordered 8 yards of fabric from Spoonflower. I am determined to make my first quilt and now I have a sewing machine so it'll work I swear!

Question....can you make a quilt without batting? ......oh crap I just realized that I may not have ordered enough fabric. I want to make a full size quilt for my son...I bought 8 yards thinking I could make it 80x90 which is why I bought 8 yards....on the basis that my squares were going to be 10x10...but that doesn't give me a backing does it? I was thinking of sewing squares back to back so it was the same on each side and maybe crocheting them together....

First question: how old is your son?
Second question: why do you want to make a full size quilt? That is a LOT to bite off for your first quilt. Are you planning to quilt it yourself? Tie it? I don't understand anything about crocheting or what it would mean to crochet them together.

A quilt is technically three layers, fastened together in some manner. So, if you make a cover without batting, it's not a quilt.

I made twin size quilts for my kids when they were six and five. They are now 12 and 9. This is a good size for them.

Is there a quilt shop near you? People are usually very helpful there. We have a guild here. Maybe there is something near you? Also, from what I understand, there are tons of videos on youtube. I don't learn well from videos, so I haven't checked it out.

my son is one. I wanted to make something he can grow into and keep, so that's why I was thinking full size.

I want to make something like this http://lilliansstitches.blogspot.ca/search/label/Fusion%20Blanket

perhaps it isn't strictly a quilt..

Quilt or not is kind of irrelevant to answering your question! If you want to make a 80x90 blanket, that means you need 72 squares for the front and 72 squares for the back assuming your squares are 10". But if you're crocheting around them, then probably you're going to start with somewhat smaller squares and use the crochet to bring them up to 10" - I'm not really sure how that would work, I'm not a crocheter, but since I don't know what size of square you'd need to start with (9" or 8" I'd guess?) I'll just use 10" squares for the math.

I'm not totally familar with Spoonflower cotton (I've used their linen-cotton blend, unhappily - make sure you follow their care instructions closely! it's not the same as regular cotton fabric), but generally speaking you can get 42" of usable fabric from the width of a piece of cotton. Which means you can get 4 squares out of every 10 inches of fabric from the length. You'll need 144 squares total, which means you'll need to cut 36 ten inch strips of fabric (that you'll then cross-cut into 4 squares each - 36x4=144). One yard of fabric is 36", so you'll need to have 10 continuous yards of fabric to cut those squares.

Where is gets tricky, though, is that you've probably NOT bought 10 continuous yards, but a selection of yards or half yards or some other measurement. If you've bought 8 individual yards, you'll only be able to cut 3 ten-inch strips (with 6" x 42" left over) from each, meaning you'll only get 12 ten-inch squares from each yard - 12x8=96 blocks, leaving you 48 blocks shy and in need of 4 more individual yards of fabric.

Now, if you started with 9" squares and crocheted them up to the 10" size... you'd be able to get 4 nine-inch strips (which can each be cross-cut into 4 9-inch squares) from each individual yard (assuming you made no cutting errors - there is literally not a speck of space for that!), which would give you 16 squares per yard of fabric and your 8 yards would give you 128 squares total, leaving you just one yard shy of cutting 144 squares.

Yikes... I went and looked at those links... and if you're working with 5" squares, that changes things A LOT!

This looks like an excellent format for starting with a project that will grow with the child. Start with something between 2'x2' and 3'x3', and add blocks for length and width as-needed. You could even make the extra rows now and store them for future use.

Лучшие новогодние игры и приложения для Android

(Link)
Вот-вот наступит Новый год – самый долгожданный для многих праздник. Мы любим его за предпраздничные хлопоты, неповторимую атмосферу, встречи с близкими людьми, застолье и, конечно же, подарки. Мы, в свою очередь, подготовили подборку приложений, которые помогут вам во всей этой новогодней суете.
[url=http://androids-games-apps.blogspot.ru/][img]http://listivki.ru/novgod/2017petuha/1.jpg[/img][/url]
«Яндекс.Музыка» отлично подойдет для создания праздничного музыкального настроения. В фонотеке этого сервиса – более 20 млн композиций, которые в приложении с некоторых пор доступны только по подписке. Платные пользователи имеют неограниченные возможности поиска, проигрывания и скачивания музыкальных треков.

Одной из самых интересных функций «Яндекс.Музыки» являются тематические подборки и рекомендации, которые к тому же можно слушать совершенно бесплатно. Ежегодно к празднику команда «Яндекс.Музыки» готовит для своих слушателей новогодние плейлисты. Примечательно, что такие подборки включают зарубежных и отечественных исполнителей и содержат как современную музыку, так и проверенные временем новогодние хиты.

Кроме того, приложение может выступать и как обычный плеер, позволяя слушать собственную музыку на устройстве и импортировать ее в плейлист. Так что, если у вас есть свои предпочтения, какой должна быть новогодняя музыка – можете запросто создать свою праздничную подборку.
