    Hope I'm figuring enough yardage

    I am making alter ego quilt for resale. She wants white and ladybugs. I will do the 4 patches in white & lady bugs and the HST in white and lady bugs. I think 8 yds of each will easily do 108x95. Please let me know if I have figured this totally wrong.
    Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

    Terry - I think that block is 9" (unfinished), right? How many blocks across and down? Any borders? 8 yds per fabric will be plenty, since there is so little waste with this block. If there are no borders, you can probably get by with less, but I would sketch it out on graph paper (I'm a visual person!)....

          I always buy at LEAST a yard more than I think I need!

              Thanks Pretti. I'm going there right now. I knew there probably was one but had no idea how to even search for it. Apps are a foreign language for me.

                I cut it twice and it was still too short!
