Inspired by Pam's amazing creation, I got out all the fabric I bought last year that I wanted to make a light summer quilt with. This is the summer I am going to make it happen.
I finished all the cutting and am ready to begin the piecing. You don't think I have too many different fabrics here do you? Good. I didn't think so either.
Here's a story problem for you:
If you need a cover for your bed, and you want the dimensions of that cover to be 80 inches long by 110 inches wide (minimum), and you have 75 strips of fabric that are each 7 1/2 x 17 inches long and you are not planning to put any other strips of plain fabric between the strips of pieced fabric do you have enough material to get the job done?
Answer = NO! You need 90 strips. I am NOT going to show you how I came up with this number because at my house you don't have to "show your work". Trust me though, it's accurate.
This means I need to: A. Make 15 more strips, or B. Add some plain strips in between the pieced colored strips. I am going to give lots of thoughts to these two options and select the best one. Just as soon as I get finished laying out the 75 pieces I currently have in every possible configuration.
