Sunshine Slashed Squares

Try saying that three times fast...

I have decided to make the Sunshine Quilt using the Slashed Squares block. Since I have been buying the yellow fabrics in 1/2 yard pieces, I needed to work out how much fabric I would need for the blocks, and if I would have enough. I do. Each half yard will yield two blocks. I have 19 fabrics, enough for 38 blocks. My blocks will be 14" square, and I will make six rows of six for an 84" square quilt.

Which will live (believe it or not) in my son's car.

In theory.

Thats a whole lot of maths for making pretty! :)
I think I would be making a little sack to keep it in if it is going to be living in the car... ouch!
