This is a quilt that was started about two years ago and I've been cutting fabric off and on since. As a "scrap quilter", I don't have a lot of "width of fabric" like many. I'm happy with scraps, pieces, hunks and chunks rescued from friends' trash (you know who you are!). So, because this does best when the strips are pieced from WOF, I've cut as I've gotten fabric and put it in bins.
Each octagon requires two strips at 2.5", 2 strips at 2", 1 strip at 2.5" and another strip at 2.5" (for pinwheel). Obviously, that's a lot of fabric and because of the cutting requirements, there is enough for another quilt that is would be scrapier. BUT NO TIME SOON. I'm tired of octagons!
