Design wall Monday

AKA Good math was off, WAY OFF!

My current leader and ender project is Sunny Lanes from the Nickel Quilts book. Each block has 16 units, 8 HST and 8 4patch. My wacko calculations came up with 320 of each to make 20 blocks. I got 10 blocks done. Only then did I realize I have way too many units left. Sigh. Revised plan. I'm going to make 2 twin quilts using 24 blocks each. It won't be long before I have enough additional units for both quilts.

This is the part of leaders and enders I love....putting the pieces together. I've already got an idea for my next one..... I've always wanted to do an Ocean Waves quilt.

Since I've been using scraps, I'll count the yardage used once the tops are done. So my stash report is nothing in and nothing out.

At least your miscalulation was on the plus side!

better to have blocks remaining to make 2 quilts than lacking to do 1.
Your blocks look great. Hugs

Very cool scrap pattern! I had to stare at it a while to figure out how you made it!

How does that happen???? And why do many of us have a problem with that. I sit and figure, and write down, etc. and many times, get all tangled in the figures, and I even kinda enjoy math!

Well, it's turning out very pretty, and enticing - YES, I have that book also!
