1 1/2 yards for backing
1/2 yard for binding.
This quilt was made with 4" squares.
The beauty of creating your own is you can actually use any size square you want as long as you are consistent with the same size throughout this project. A CHARM PACK (5 inch square) would work wonderful and you already have the squares cut out. Even a LAYER CAKE (10 inch square) would work. You would adjust your white fabric measurements to fit the square size.
In this particular quilt there are 48 pink 4 " squares. It measures 37X47. Great for a baby quilt.
After you have your squares cut out ....... you are ready to cut the rectangles (the white fabric on this quilt). For this quilt I cut 2" strips the width of the fabric. ( from fold edge to selvage edge) Cut approx. 5 strips 2" x width of fabric. From these strips cut (42) 2" x 4" rectangle.
Okay now we have the squares and the rectangles. Now take a white rectangle and place it on the pink square lining the edges together. Sew a 1/4 inch seam along that edge.
Press seam to the dark ( pink square)
Add a pink square to the other side of white rectangle. Keep doing this until you have a row of six pink squares.
