Depends on the size of the squares and how big you want the quilt. (Not much help here HAHA!)
You can figure it out - I'm sure of that.
|Lots of yummi fabric !!!!|
No. You better go to this blog first and watch a nice tutorial with beautiful photos, that will make your mouth water. Now you know much more about this quilt and why I can't help you with the amount of squares:-)
So - you cut a lot of squares.
Then you cut a lot of batting squares... but only half the amount of the fabric squares and a tiny bit bigger..
Then you put two fabric squares on top of one batting square and line them up. Make sure that the top fabric square is face down and the other in the middle is face up. My plaids are the same on both sides of the fabric, so no need to pay attention to that.
|Line the two fabric squares up right on top of each other. My batting squares are a tiny bit bigger cut.|
Make a lot and stack them to make them look like a mountain;-)
|Pretend it is Killimanjaro - with snow! (it is important to excercise your imagination!!)|
Sew each little package together from the fabric side (batting down towards the sewing machine) and leave a gap in the middle of one side. This way you can turn it inside out and cut away the corners to make them nice and pointy.
When the square is turned inside out - fold the seam allowances in and close the gap with a narrow stitch....
... it looks like this. Use a better color thread than I did. I s*uck at picking rigth color thread:-)

And now you are tired.
You have sewn all day and need a break and a treat.
So go get dressed, put on some lipstick, a dab of perfume and explore the city.
If you don't live in Copenhagen and can go to Tivoli - too bad.
I'm going :-)))
