Fabric Required For Queen Quilt (20 blocks)

The fabric requirements listed are for making 20 blocks for a queen size quilt. Please go to page 1 for a listing of block quantities needed for one block (such as for a pillow). Page 1 also lists quantity of blocks needed for quilts of other sizes. 20 blocks plus borders and lattice will create a queen size quilt.

Finished Quilt - Queen

bear paw quilt pattern For quilts, the blocks are usually separated by strips of fabric (called sashing or lattice) in a pattern of your choice. You choose whether you will use sashing, what the width of the sashing will be, whether the sashing will be pieced into designs etc. Refer to the photo of a finished quilt. I made this queen size quilt using 20 blocks. I added borders on the sides, top and bottom. I also added white squares to my lattice.

NOTE: Fabric requirements are based on fabric width of at least 42". I have allowed a bit extra. Seams are all 1/4". The fabric will make 20 blocks.
