Home on the Range Fabric Requirements, 21" blocks

If you've chosen to do the 21" blocks for this BOM, you will need the following amounts of yardage:
Color A - very light - 2 1/4 yds. (includes sashing)
Color B - light - 1 yd.
Color C - medium - 7/8 yd.
Color D - medium - 1 yd.
Color E - dark - 1 1/8 yd.
Color F - very dark - 1/2 yd.

These amounts do include some leeway for a few miscuts.  If you are still concerned about shrinkage and more than a few miscuts, or simply want extra fabric for your own creative interpretation of my design, add another 1/4 yd to the amounts listed above.

The border I designed uses pieces of each color cut 3.5" wide (3" finished).  For this border, add the following amounts to the yardage requireed:
Colors A & B - 3/4 yd.
Colors C, D, E & F - 3/8 yd.

This quilt will finish at 81" x 105".  For binding, you will need 10.5 yds. of purchased binding or 3/4 yd. fabric to make your own double-fold binding (non-bias).
