We've have always strip packs of 28 3 1/2" for the What Four. And as luck would have it--GRANADA used 28 3 1/2" strips, too. I was almost shocked how nifty the math worked. For What Four or CHARITY we used all multi-colored prints--roughly divided 14 light-ish, 12 dark-ish. For GRANADA, 6 strips are usually a single, tone on tone Asian print. The remaining 22 are multicolored. The solid strips are the centers, and it is always fun to pair them with the prints.

So I picked a few RoseCard pattern candidates, and set color queen Pam to work picking groups. Here is what we are thinking about making up into bundles and/or models....
I need to replace my popular model made from Laura Gunn's Poppy--this will do nicely.
A very popular kit, OPENING NIGHT always goes well. The main print here will look fine sideways for the top and bottom borders. This also makes a good sized throw at very reasonable price, since we use fabric so efficiently.
This lovely and subtle coloring will be nice in a more tailored design like our SUNSPRITE. I think I would double up--use 2 6 Fat Quarter packs. It makes 12 blocks, finishing 54"x60". Great in a contemporary setting.
