We'll be making at least one large leaf in class, but come prepared for some extras, just in case.
1/ Treat and iron one or two fat quarters (for your leaves) with Mary Ellen's. Cut as per the second cutting map on page 1 of your pattern (the one for 1 large, 1 medium leaf). I'll demonstrate cutting with the Stripology ruler in class if you'd like to switch to that method for the rest of your cutting;
2/ Treat and iron your background fabric with Mary Ellen's;
3/ Cut your background fabric as indicated on page 2 of your pattern. Sort your pieces and put into labelled baggies (you will thank me for this advice!). This is the cutting required for the entire quilt, but for class you should bring the pieces needed for the large and medium blocks, as per the chart on page 1 of your pattern.
