Research Project Idea: Since I have never done a quilt before I did a little random, hopefully okay, figuring. I plan to do a lap quilt. I wanted it be a bit longer so my Dad can tuck it under his feet. Please
correct me if any of this sounds wrong. I am going to do a block of nine 4.5" squares with a total of 35 blocks. Each block is going to consist of a solid (red) fabric and then a print. I am going to use 5 different prints. I THINK
I will need about 2 1/2 yards of the solid red and 5 half yards of each print. I think. That is where my figuring came in.... it is for the front of course and I want to use a flannel sheet for the back for extra warmth.
Estimated Time Line? Forever. Ha! Seriously, I hope to have it done for Christmas but I plan on working on it thru this season of the Games too. How long should this take normally? I have no idea what I am getting myself into.
