SHOW BIZ uses 13 Fat Quarters or 38 10" squares--or even 20 Fat Sixths or 20 5" strips. One yard will do the Frame around the Center and Binding. The center can be anything that you can cut or build to 15 1/2"--for this quilt, I used another Fat Quarter. I am itching to use a vintage piece in the middle. The frame does not have to be cut as the pattern states--you can use any piece or any size, so long as it ends up 18 1/2" before you start laying the bricks around it. The Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild in Roswell GA used GYPSY for a community service sewing project day. They shared photos with me--one quilter used 4 orphan Fan blocks for the center--fabulous.
