So this is the block that I am working on for my sister in laws birthday (I know I have shown it before). It is a 8" block. Each block has 8 - 4 patch squares that measure 2". For the size quilt I want to do I will need 576 - 4 patch squares. I had not clue I would need that many for this quilt. I am struggling to find enough scraps to make this 4 patch squares. I have 200 made right now. I will have to go digging deeper to find 1-1/2" strips to make another 376 of these.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?
