This is the quilt I'm going to make for my boyfriend. He's been "helping" me pick green fabrics under the guise of "I want to make something with green in it". I showed him the alternative set ups of the design and he thought the one with the black and white checkerboard background looked best.
According to EQ5, I can make a whole block with 1/2 yard of fabric: 1/8 for the green and another 1/8 for the background. I've been buying quarter yards for the green so I can churn out two blocks for each green fabric.
I'm kind of wondering...and bear with me if this doesn't come out right...if for the whites and blacks if I should get a different fabric for each block (like I'm doing with the greens) or use the same white and black fabric for every block.
