Link to the post about the quilt, that I kept for myself: Wanta Fanta. It contains only three and 2× quarter bee blocks, the rest are my own, but I will still remember it fondly as my first ever bee quilt :)

Costs are calculated via my Quilt Price Calculator: Factors are the size & pieces as mentioned above and the presets for a twin quilt. It is a FPP pattern, but some pieces can be cut fairly off-cut friendly. So I calculated with only an 30% off-cut. Also did I not calculate the backing with the actual gazillion pieces, because they would have been scraps otherwise. I used the fictual number of 4 for the backing pieces.
