They measure 7", so it will take a bunch to make a decent sized quilt. I'm thinking I need 100, but that would be only 65" square, so maybe I'll go for 120.
It will be fun to see the riot of color when I get enough to make a decent sized quilt.
Most of these are assembled from scraps, pre-cut squares (cut by me from scraps) and a little cut from stash. When one gets going, it's amazing how many fabrics and how many quilts are represented here.
Please pardon the un-pressed blocks! My iron gave out, and the new one is coming. . .
Here are a few steps of the process:
I'm cutting the pieces as I go . . .
The + is made of three pieces: 5" x 2" and 2 - 2" squares
Completing the + shape are 4 - 2" squares. I'm keeping them all the same fabric.
The X part of the block is 4 3.5" squares. I'm using similar colors, but different fabrics in the 4 squares. In the one above, there are 4 different reds in the X. The background of the X part of the block is also cut 2" squares - 8 of them. I'm keeping these all the same as well.
To assemble, you can read the tutorial on Badskirt:
86 blocks are finished; 14 (or more) to go!
