Another note on size

Had a question from a potential player, whether it was ok if one dimension of the quilt was larger than 20", as long as the total perimeter fell within the allowed 80" - this is also ok. So if you want to make a long, really skinny quilt, go for it (or, more realistically, a quilt which was 15"x25" or 10x30").  I'll make a note in the instructions, but for those who have already read them and might not go back to them, thought I'd post it here separately. In fact, I think I will change the wording just to have a total perimeter requirement. The size restrictions are simply there to give a parity to the quilts, so that they aren't too completely different when it comes to choosing. However, as you all have free choice in the end, if a quilt isn't a size you like or if you feel a small quilt doesn't equal the amount of fabric or work or whatever you put into a larger quilt, you can simply elect not to put that quilt on your preference list. This rule was more important in the old days when partners were pre-assigned and you didn't see what you were getting in advance... (Sometimes, of course, we have a single size, just for fun!)
