    Slide Show Quilt Pattern question

    I know someone here has had to have made this quilt. I am going to make a throw size and I want to use fabrics from my stash. I know it is a Fat Quarter Friendly quilt. I want to make this quilt for me (gasp!) and I want to use fabrics from the Ruby collection by Moda. I have a layer cake and a jelly roll and WOW fabric. Can anyone tell me if I will be able to do this with what I have on hand? For a lap throw, the pattern calls for 15 FQs.

    The layer cake should be enough for the large squares.
    The jell roll can be cut up for the smaller squares or you can use leftover layer cake squares.
    WOW - can be used for the background.

    Even if those smaller squares in the pattern do NOT finish at 2", you can adjust the placement and amount of background fabric to make it work.

    You might have to change some of the cut sizes, but I don't think it will change the look of the quilt that much.

    If you use the following measurements to modify the design, you'd get the same exact proportions, but be able to use the packs/rolls/WOF you have.

    Larger squares = FINISHED 8-3/4 (cut 9-1/4")
    Smaller squares = FINISHED 1-3/4 (cut 2-1/4")

    note: don't have the pattern, never made it, just looking at the picture.
