There are 2 star colors and one background.
For a 48" star ONLY (no border or backing, but there will be enough for a scrappy binding):
1 1/8 yard background
3/4 yard star color A
3/4 yard star color B
From the background

Sew eight split nine patch block units then sew two units together each matching your secondary colors, creating a flying geese unit. Make four of these units measuring 18 ½ x 9 ½ unfinished.
**(3 ½ unfinished unless using a different size)

My granddaughter wants a chevron quilt for her graduation. I am having problems deciding what size squares to start with. I don't want them real little and she doesn't want it giant size either. What would you recommend?
Quilters' cottons, top and back/poly batting
68" x 80"
If anyone is doing the have a heart pattern, you only need 60 42" inch strips, not the 80 it calls for. Once I did it and had over 1000 inches of fabric left I did the math!! It needs 2500 inches and I did follow the instructions from 80 strips you get 3360 inches. It is a fast quilt but I'm unhappy I wasted so much fabric

For first timers, just post to this thread what you're working on this weekend and feel free to share pictures. This is an opportunity to "quilt with others" on a virtual retreat and just relax. There are no quilt police here. However, be forewarned--you may gain new ideas
