And it was worth doing too. The pattern called for 1.6m each of grey and white, .25 of 16 coloured fabrics, .3 of the focus, and .7 for binding. Total yardage (as written) is 8.2 m for the top and binding.
I planned my cutting carefully and got it down to 1.5m each grey and white, .2 of 16 colours, .2 of focus and .55 for binding. Total according to ME is 6.95m for top and binding AND I’m making the blocks bigger with one extra round of logs.
You can see that it is worth reading through written patterns and checking the cut list carefully.
