Instead of the making the 80 Block quilt ....I made a 42 Block Throw. They are made the same...you just add more blocks (and use a flower die instead of the scallop square die).
I had made one mistake when I was making it....I accidentally put two pieces of fabric with dragonflies next to each other.....and I'm happy to report I was able to move it.
The Scallop Squares were cut with a Big Shot Die Cut Machine (which sales for only $99) and the Scallop Square die and I have instructions I'm working on.
Here's what I have so far:
- 3 yards of white or ivory fabric (I prefer Moda). This is for your 8" Blocks.
- 8 Fat Quarters (the more patterns the better) I used five patterns with mine...so you could double up on a few to get 8.
- If you prefer to purchase yardage instead of Fat Quarters - purchase 1/3 yard of fabric for each pattern you want to use. You need at least five patterns.
- Batting, Binding & Backing Fabric - you'll need 3 yards of Backing Fabric, for the throw size (can be purchased after you've made the quilt top if you're using a color...I tend to use the same white or cream for my mine). As for the Batting & Binding.... I leave that to the experts and take it to my local quilt shop and they measure it.
To my friend Tammy.....girl you have everything you need to get started. I wanna see something happen soon :)
p.s. Anyone out there want to type the instructions for me and trade for some Stampin' Up! product?
