For this quilt, I wanted a design that would showcase a crazy Squirrel print from Tula Pink. I knew I wanted to build the design around fussy cut blocks. Nutty Bars is easy and quick for even newer quilters. You can lay it out two ways; random, as shown, or in a more predictable pattern. MATERIALS: Gigantic Queen / King (90" x 113"): 4 yards grey solid 13 Fat Quarters 2 yards feature print (more if fussy cutting) 7 1/2 yards backing (42" wide) OR 5 1/2 yards (60" wide) 96" x 116" batting 3/4 yards binding Standard Twin (68" x 90"): 3 yards grey solid 8 Fat Quarters 1 1/2 yards feature print (more if fussy cutting) 5 yards backing (if using 42" wide) OR 4 yards backing if using 60" wide) 74" x 96" batting 5/8 yard binding BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cut fabric sew even 1/4" seams hand or machine quilt piece blocks SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Gigantic Queen/King or Standard Twin
