the size will be 35' x 45' with 5' squares. i need 63 squares, a backing that is at least 2 inches bigger on each side and at least 160 inches of binding.
i think i ended up with more than 100 squares but some (like this green here) didn't make the final cut.
here it is all laid out on the kitchen table. i swear, someday i will have a work surface that i do not share with food. i like to take pictures of my projects and then look at them. it gives a different perspective and sometimes you see things that you didn't see with your naked eye. for example, i see that in row 4, 3 of the squares are the same material. i'll have to change that. otherwise, i think it looks good. i was aiming for sweet and feminine. i think i hit that mark.
the math is done, binding cut (2.5' wide) and rows put into piles and labeled.
tomorrow i start sewing.
