This pattern is called Forest Bricks from http://www.maryquilts.com/
I figured ( and that was the first problem) that I wanted it QOV size so it would only take 70 blocks.
And I would set them 7 x 10.
Today I had them in 10 block rows and set them into the top - and it measured 42 x 60..... not quite the 55 x 65 that I was going for!!! Then I figured out why - each block only finished at 6 inches, and apparently my multiplication skills are lacking.
I headed downstairs and found some more red and more bubble fabric and added a row, and it still wasn't big enough! So I added MORE!
And then I added MORE!
Finally - I had the appropriate size! I have it set at 9 x 11 which comes out to 54 x 66, and I needed 99 blocks - not the 70 I originally started with.
Shew - Done! - Almost.... It still needs a backing and quilting - but that will come right?
