I just joined this group- I am Lorraine. I live in Florida and enjoy many crafts, especially crochet.
I have always wanted to learn quilting and a few years ago made my first one. It didn't turn out as nice as I expected it to as it was a 5 year project....working on it just every now and then.
I recently met a neighbor who does wonderful quilts and so I have now gained some confidence that i can do better this time.
I will LOVE to make a queen size log cabin quilt with 12" squares. I have no idea how to figure out yardages. I would like 1 color used for each center square, then 5 lights, 5 darks. I know what I want but have no idea how to go about figuring it out. I am not concerned about a back fabric just yet and wouldn't be using sashings. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
