I am working in squares that are 8 x 8 which = 64 two and a half inch triangles.
I need 4 of these 8 x 8 squares for the sides of my quilt which = 256 two and a half inch triangles plus
12 x 8 = 96 which added to the 256 = 352 two and a half inch triangles just for the two sides.
I have that right now!!! Yea!!!
Then for the top and bottom I need the same 256 plus
80 two and a half inch squares which = 336
this side is one 2 1/2" shorter than the other that is why there is a difference.
I have that yea!!!!
Now I am working on the end caps (that is what I am calling the end squares)
I need two 8 x 8 which equals 128
which makes the total 2 1/2" squares that I need just for the border
806 two and a half inch squares
I am not a mathematician and if my calculations are somewhat off....
No matter to me, I can add or take away but I know I will be close....
so no worries in that department
Just giving you an idea of what I am up to
I have a week left and I am determined. While calculating this I wanted to cry because I
thought I almost had it but found an error in my figures (go figure)
so back to the sewing machine..
You can cheer me on....
send a diet cherry limeaide
send a paddy wagon!!!
