    Quilt & General Supplies:

    • Light fabric: 2 yds x WOF (width of fabric)
    • Medium/light fabric for border: 2 yds x WOF

    Note: The background uses whole cloth so the wider this is, the wider your quilt can be. Add 16" to this for borders to get an approximate overall quilt size. Subtle piecing can make up the background in which case you will need to determine the amount of border fabric required. The borders are cut lengthwise dividing the fabric into quarters to cut four same length strips.

    • Backing fabric & Batting - this needs to be at least 4" larger than finished quilt. Note: if using a longarm quilter, ask them what is required as it is generally a lot more than 4"
    • Fusible webbing
    • Threads to match border and any applique fabrics below for applique and embroidery - preferably machine embroidery thread and/or hand embroidery threads if stitching embroidery by hand
    • Teflon Sheet or Baking Paper (to build your applique on)
