    Our standard duration for teacher help is 10 weeks. If you feel you need longer we have an option to select 14 weeks of teacher help. We find this is plenty of time for the student to be engaged.

    What's in the class that is not in the pattern?

    Instant help with construction and fabric selection
    THREE options of construction (all scrappy squares, scrappy strips, 4 fabrics with simplified piecing)
    THREE border options (plain, strip pieced, Seminole)
    Extra quilting designs with full details and video showing stitching

    Note: Once purchased, you can access the class data any time, 24 hours a day and you get immediate access. (if you don't have an account we suggest you sign up for one prior to purchase)

    Fabric Hints: This pattern works best with three distinct colors, which all strongly contrast with the background. Use light fabrics for the background and dark fabrics for the colored sections with only a few mediums for variety. Use a variety of prints within each color. Full details about colors and fabrics are given in the first lesson.

    There are three options for construction. The first option is separate squares in the four-color groups so use as many different fabrics within the four-color groups of your choice or use a combination of strips and squares. Option 2 has strip cutting from Fat Quarters (or Fat Eights - you will need twice as many fat eighths). Option 3 has strip cutting from WOF. Amounts assume a Fat Quarter is 18" x 20" or WOF 40" usable width.

    There are three sizes to choose from. The smallest size is given first with the larger sizes given in [ ].

    Border amounts are given separately. Note: If you are a beginner, then I suggest you stick with the plain border option. The strip pieced border is good for intermediate level and the Seminole border for advanced quilters.
