|Black Tie Party, Project #043|
I've calculated that the 156 uniques can be laid out, in the above pattern, at 13 rows by 12 columns, which finished will give a 39" x 36" unit. I'm thinking I will add a 3" black border all around it. That would bring it to 45" x 42". Still just a bit small in my thinking, so perhaps another round of bow tie units (I obviously have no shortage of blocks), which then would bring it up to 51" x 48". I could leave it at that, or add yet another two rows all around, maybe alternating the direction of the blocks. I would have to cut and construct 3 additional blocks though...again, all depending on if my initial count, and calculations are accurate. I'm not known for counting accurately!
