Working on Community Service quilts, I am using fabrics available. This quilt started with about 27 inches of the floral theme fabric. Using every inch of it, I cut 6 13" squares--this also uses the width of the fabric efficiently. Then I adjusted the Iced Tea block to fit. I wanted to stay with 5" wide pieces, since that is my favorite size. To get a 13" square, raw edge to raw edge, the rectangles are cut 5" x 8 1/2" and the center is 4". If I use 5" x 9 1/2" slices from the stash, I simply lop off 1". I made a quick 6 blocks, and alternated them with the theme squares.
The blocks finish 12 1/2". The quilt is 38"x 50" without a border--perfect little lap or baby. Add a border to get a bigger kids or throw size.
