although I have no idea as to the back story for that. It's not the most frugal use of fabric I've ever encountered. Maybe because when all is said and done, it's a basically a 9-Patch block.
When you have sewed all 9 fabric units into place, here's what you've got.
I can't say that I know any actual, Real Life children who would enjoy patiently, carefully stitching their way through enough blocks to produce even a placemat, but I know several who would love to pick the foundation paper off the back all 80 of these blocks. (Which brings up an interesting thought: why am I not asking them to do this? Hummm....)
So, when this little quilt fellow here grows up, when the blocks are stitched into rows, and the rows joined to form the top, and sandwiching and quilting occurs, it will be in the general neighborhood of 48 by 60 inches, plus whatever borders I've opted to use. Overall, a lap or a nap quilt. For me. Because by the time I've completed it, I will be tired.
