I'm doing the planning and prep work for making the annual St. Dunstan's Raffle quilt. I plan to do this in September. This year, I'll be making an on-pointe Ohio Star. The ladies have requested fall colors such as browns, reds, purples, golds. I've drafted up the quilt in EQ. I've been calculating fabric requirements step by step with pencil and paper and calculator. Blocks, setting triangles, border 1, border 2 and binding. It's taken the best part of my morning. This is a good size queen quilt, 88" x 105". I've done a sample block out of my scrap bin and made a small modification..
It could be me, but I think I've gone wrong somewhere. After all is said and done, for the quilt top and binding (no backing), I've calculated that I'll need 13 yards. Gesh, can that be right? I think I need to recalculate.. Stay tuned.
