This quick little quilt starts with 6 Fat Quarters. Or you can cut 36 5"x 9 1/2" slices from scraps. Or cut the slices from a pack of 10" squares--you will have the other half to make another quilt, either FOLKLORE again or one of our other little designs, like EDEN ROSE, PERFECT MOMENT, or PRISTINE.
Add a Center focal piece for the blocks--use 5/8 yd or cut 6 9 1/2" squares from scraps. I can also see this working if you have a panel of squares -- cut them apart and frame them up as needed to get the 9 1/2" size. Or, if you want a very airy look, making rings of the patchwork pieces, you could use the lattice fabric for the centers.
The lattice takes 7/8 yard, and the quilt will finish into a 43"x 63" baby/lap at this point. With 1 1/2 yards of border fabric, you can cut 6 1/2" border strips and the quilt will finish into a 55"x75" throw.
