    I don't know what happened but I wasn't getting my notifications for a while. All the new Vermonts are BEAUTIFUL of course. Welcome to the newbies just joining us. The only thing hard about these blocks is choosing the fabric. Once you do a few it will be OK. Some have lots and lots of pieces too but just work at your own pace and all shall be fine.

    Welcome Anael. I look forward to seeing your stars. I used the same background for all of my stars and I am pretty sure I bought 7 yards of fabric. I have all of mine finished and have maybe a yard left over that I plan to use for my binding. I emailed Carol Doak before we started to ask how much to buy and she didn't know how much. I used 49 of the blocks in my quilt and am making 4 of Vermont to make a wall hanging. The lines around the edges of the Vermont make a noce design.
    I love all of the Vermonts. I am still amazed at how different they all look made with different fabrics.

    Meanmom, I think 7 yards is right. I wanted to say that but it seemed like so much. But I remember at the time, it seemed like a lot. I think I'm going to be short but I'll have to get creative because the store is out of it. Not surprising since that was almost a year ago. I'm not even sure I wrote down what it was.

    Whitepine. I just went to the LQS looking for more of my background because I wanted some to use on my back. I am enlarging my home state block, Ohio 300% and putting it in the middle of my back. I didn't think I had enough left for this. The shop where I bought it is closing in 2 weeks, temporarily. The are looking for a place to move to. Haven't found the right location yet. Miraculously they still had some. My LQS keeps track of my purchases and can usually look up what I bought and tell me the name. Then I can search online in an emergency.

    Once, when I was on a shop hop expedition, I met a woman carrying a 3-ring binder full of swatches. Each page had about a dozen pieces of fabric, each with all it's info. If she was doing a quilt, those swatches would all be on one page. Needless to say, I was pretty impressed with her organization.

    Wow I wish I was that organized
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    I would never be that organized. I figure I am doing good if I can find the fabric for my current project in the mess that my sewing room has become. Usually it is somewhere on the floor. Before I became addicted to batiks I used to try to save the selvages until I finished a project. I usually change up a quilt in the middle of a project, then I don't have enough fabric. I didn't do very well at that.I have been known to buy a fabric that I already have because I don't remember I have it.

Here are pictures of the front & back of it.

    Patricia..do you or anyone else know how much backing it would take to do the quilt as you go method. Wouldn't it take more than normal?

    Sorry Patrice, I didn't keep track, but I think it took about the same as a normal quilt when doing the QAYG block method. I used the same color sashing for the front, back & sides.

    I guess you could figure it out by (1) multiplying the # of blocks by the block size, (2) multiplying the # of sashings by their sizes (front, back, sides & between the blocks) and (3) adding these amounts together to get the total # of inches, then convert to yardage.
