There and Back Again Month 13 and Layout

They fell to talking of their times together, of course, and Bilbo asked how things were going in the lands of the Mountain. It seemed they were going very well. Bard had rebuilt the town in Dale and men had gathered to him from the Lake and from South and West, and all the valley had become tilled again and rich, and the desolation was now filled with birds and blossoms in spring and fruit and feasting in autumn. And Lake-town was refounded and was more prosperous than ever, and much wealth went up and down the Running River; and there was friendship in those parts between elves and dwarves and men.
The Hobbit, ch. 19

  1. I just did a totally ridiculous victory dance in my chair - I was really, really hoping that the next big project would be LotR, and it is! I'm one giant glob of excitement right now; I actually decided to start a livejournal to really participate this time - something I've been putting off for the last four years. That's how excited I am. Thanks so much for the great patterns and ideas!

    1. You can thank Lilja for that, she's masterminding the next one...and it's going to be truly epic!

  2. Is it possible to scale this up so the finished quilt is larger?

    1. Absolutely you can. Quilted Snail has a great chart for scaling patterns: http://www.thequiltedsnail.com/scale.html
