Awhile ago I came up with this really
stupid great plan to make a King size quilt for my bed.
So I decided on this bowtie design. I figured I needed 168 blocks to make it 104" x 90"…and each block has four smaller blocks in it…and each smaller block contains 6 little squares (including the little corner squares). So I figured to make this whole quilt I’ll have to cut 1008 little squares . Totally do-able.
But then as I was lying awake in bed listening to my husband snore I realized…I’ll actually need 4032 little squares!!!!!!! I forgot to times that 1008 by 4. Yuck. And instead of the 3 yards of white fabric I bought I’ll need 6 yards. So much for my quick project!
