The block is made up of side sets which form the background of the spools made from the spool sets. After counting up how many I had of these side sets and the spool sets, I made a decision as to how big I wanted to make this quilt. I chose a lap-size, and with 3" borders, it will measure 57" x 69". I was 58 side sets short, 4 spool sets over (I may use them as border corner stones).
It was pretty easy to find more fabrics in my 1.5" strip bin to bring the count up. They are now all counted out and bundled so that when I do actually sew on them again, I'll know where I am, and I updated my 'plan' sheet so I won't forget my plan.
