log cabin 3 for austin

So here is the alternate setting.  I like his name closer together better. The main thing I don't like is the lamb's head being cut off in the letter I. Notice the dinosaurs cut out of one of his uncles' shorts. The blocks are 6" so it will be 30 x 36 without borders....what do you think? is it better than version 1?

The additional blocks make it weigh 6.25 ounces; which works out to be close to 1 1/3 yards of fabric. (I measured and weighed 5 fabrics this morning and the average of those fabrics is 5.48 ounces per yard.)

Redoing the math I got 10 pounds of fabric equals 35 yards? So how did I get 2 yesterday and get 35 today? Check my logic out...please. There are 16 ounces in a pound so 10 x 16 = 160 ounces 
160 ounces / 4.48 = 35.714. That's a lot of green scraps!
