POST EDIT: my block ended up small, but one simple fix worked. Instead of cutting my corner triangles from two 2 7/8" blocks, I cut two 3 1/8" squares and cut them on the diagonal. Voila. My block was bigger. If yours, or any of your blocks, end up smaller than 8 1/2" unfinished, don't panic. The layout for this quilt will solve any block sizing woes.
Now that the Happy Go Lucky fabric collection is in shops, I want to give you the fabric requirements for fishing the full quilt before yardage starts disappearing. I know it's tricky to choose fabric when you don't know exactly what you're choosing for, but keep in mind that this quilt is going to be the same layout at as this sampler quilt.
Sashing fabric: 1 1/2 yards (I'm using the white on white Lucky Penny dot)
First border: 1/2 yard
Outside border: 1 1/2 yards
Binding: 1/2 yard
Backing 4 yards
Keep in mind that the color you choose for the outside border, is going to become the dominant color in your quilt.
For the corner stones and the fabric framing the blocks, you can use a variety of scraps from your fat eighth or fat quarter bundles. You will need at least 32 squares 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". Set them aside for framing the blocks at the end.
You can find Happy Go Lucky yardage in these online retailers: Poppy Seed Fabrics, Southern Fabrics, Fabric Worm, Pink Castle Fabrics, The Little Fabric Shop, and the Fat Quarter Shop.
