    Double Sluce!

    The DS is one if my favorites..,. Truth now... Do you think these could be worked into one... Or, should I get more of each, and just use each set to make a DS quilt.... Did I make ant sense?

    Try again.... Should I mix two, or even all three if these fabrics in a DS quilt, or should I make separate quilts out if each fat quarter pack? I got them at Joann's, so I can easily pick up more...

    They look good to me! I think the more fabrics the better.

      From what I can see the colors seem to go together well!

        It could be the lighting but I like the two on the right (print and diagonal lines) together. On my screen the marbles look to pale/pastel.

          I would use all three bundles plus throw in a little bit of a wow fabric- just something to be a surprise.

            You will be able to get 2 10" squares from each FQ. Do you have enough fabric? You would need 21 FQs to do the same size as a layer cake? If you wold cut your squares a little bit smaller ( 8-1/2") you could get more squares out of each FQ and have less waste, but you would need more squares, just guessing I would say from 48-63.

              I like Jean's idea - otherwise you will have a lot of leftover fabric. I would think the double slice would work well with what ever size square you use as long as it's consistent.

              Pretty fabric BTW.

                Hmmmm... Might work.

                What I want go do is make a couple of Pl quilts.... I might buy more fabric when I go to J,'s today.

                I'm thinking smaller blocks might make a nicer baby quilt. How much would I cut off the top of an 8 1/2 square?

                Thanks everyone!

                  The two on the right are a little brighter.... You are right about that..

                    I like the idea of the 81/2 squares for a baby quilt. I might try that with a layer cake. I need some scraps for a string quilt anyway. Or a border, hmm

                      I like the last 2 bundles together, but the first looks a little pale to me, but they might match others in the print bundle that we can't see. I think the smaller squares will look good for a kids quilt and will leave you with less scraps.

                      The double slice for a layer cake gives pieces 6.5 and 3.5 so I translated those to %, here is what I would use:
                      -8 inch square - 5 1/4 and 2 3/4 (I rounded to quilt friendly decimals)
                      -8.25 inch square - 5 3/8 and 2 5/8

                        I wouldn't do an 8 1/2 inch, I'd do nine. You can get four from each one doing 9 inch. FQ is 18 X 21-22 depending on where you get the cut.

                        Cutting them 8.5 doesn't give you more than cutting them at 9 iches. 9 gives the bigger layer cake. Four per FQ with a four inch strip let for borders or charms or strips.

                          Since you are starting with fat quarters - you can just cut the strips the size you need - you don't have to cut the squares first and then down to size - less waste for the double slice when using fat quarters or yardage, since you wouldn't have to cut the squares down.

                            I think they play well together. For me personally, for a baby quilt I would use 6" blocks, but the 8 or 9 would work too.
