You will need the Rapid Fire Petite Hunter's Star Ruler
Your prep work is outlined below -- please come to class prepared.
You can choose to buy fabric for a quilt, any size, based on the fabric requirements below. These are based on a two-colour quilt. However, if you wish to make your quilt scrappy, you can divide the fabric requirements among as many fabrics as you like, keeping in mind that half of the fabric
should be light/medium values and the other half medium/dark. For a fabric to be suitable, you must be able to cut an 8" square from it as well as a
1 3/4" x 20" strip and a 2 1/4" x 20" strip.

THESE INSTRUCTIONS ASSUME YOU ARE MAKING A TWO COLOUR QUILT WITH 8" SQUARES
The cutting below will be plenty to get you started in the class, but bring your fabric because you may progress faster and want to keep sewing.
Come to class with ONE 8" width of fabric strips cut from your light and your dark, and subcut these into 8" squares. Carefully cut these squares
along one diagonal to make each into two triangles.
Cut (3) 1 3/4" strips each of light and dark, and (3) 2 1/4" strips of light and dark.
