New Bedspread Project

Now that company is gone I'm going to start on some new projects. I am making a bedspread using the Coliseum square I designed. I started it this afternoon using TLC Lustre in Natural. It's a soft 3 ply yarn that drapes beautifully. I started a ruana last year with this yarn but it was a bit too thin for what I was going for, and ended up using Lion Brand Homespun in Charcoal. It was heavy, but very pretty. Anywho, I'm not sure how many squares it will take to create a queen-sized bedspread, and will just play that by ear.
