    How long do you think it'll take for an intermediate quilter to put this one together? I need to make 2 (twins). I'm not sure how much time to give myself.

    Everyone works at a different speed.

    If you want to pace yourself, ;-) spend one afternoon cutting and sewing all the strata sets for both quilts.
    The next day make all the blocks.
    And a third afternoon to decide on the block placement and sew the blocks together.

    You'll be a "partial seam" expert by the time you're done.
    Actually, by the 2nd block as they are really easy to do. ;-)

    It's a cool looking pattern that's very easy to make.
    Much better looking than a D9P. :mrgreen:

    I think you could to it in a weekend as it should go together pretty fast. However, I would not pay $10.00 for that pattern. It is just a square with (3 fabric strip)sections added in progression to each side in Log Cabin fashion. You can map it out on graph paper to get the size you want.

    With a partial seam to start.

    Here's an easy how-to:

    ditto ... no need for a pattern!! Decide on your centre block size, just make sure it is proportional to using the FQs without wastage. Making the strip sets, cutting them off, then sewing on will work up pretty quick, even with the partial seams.

    I do like the pattern ... and have added it to my idea book. I visualize a fussy cut centre with coordinating strips around. :)
