Welcome to another teaser post for the fun QAL Play with Me!
Next week the QuiltALong is going to actually begin! I am sooooooo excited!!
But today let's talk about fabric!!
Given the wide variety of techniques and designs, it is impossible for me to give you precise fabric requirements for this quilt!
Each pattern will contain the amount and colors required for each board, together with the fabric for the sashing and the backing (if you want to follow the Quilt-As-You-Go approach, as I will).
However I can give you some general suggestions on fabric choices:
- if you want to use the same fabric as sashing between all the boards, 3 yards should be enough
- if you want to use the same fabric as backing for all the boards, 4.5 yards should be enough
But what about the boards?
This is a tough question :) I think you need to understand what you like.
For example, I want my quilt to be super extra scrappy!
So I will grab whatever I need from my stash, and that's it!
But if you want to have a more coherent look, despite each board having a different number of colors and style, the perfect solution is a Fat Quarter Bundle!
A FQ bundle and a Jelly Roll, would probably be enough to make all your boards.
They will look all different but perfectly coordinated!
Do you want some ideas on fun colorful choices?
How about these?
Aren't those super yummy fabric? I like prints, but there is a great selection of solids where they come from, which is the great Fat Quarter Shop!
Isn't this exciting??!?!?! We are going to have giveaways for people that participate, so that's another reason to join the fun!! More details on this next month!
Next week I will share the first pattern!
