Fabric and Class Prep:
Please treat your fabric with Mary Ellen's Best Press before cutting. Consult page 59 in the book to determine how many coordinating 10" squares you will need for the size of quilt you would like to make. Please note that a layer cake will be more than enough to make a crib or lap size , but not enough for large sizes. Check the availability of of coordinating fabrics to supplement a layer cake if using one. You can easily cut your own 10" squares using the Stripology ruler. I recommend buying 0.3m of fabric to yield 4 accurate 10" squares. For more squares of the same fabric, make sure to add about 4" to the fabric needed; for example, 24" for 8 squares, 34" for 12 squares, 64" for 24, 124" for 48 squares. A variety of dark or coloured fabrics makes this quilt interesting. You can use an assortment of background fabrics as well, but I stuck to just one in my sample. Please note that there is a type in the book for the number of background squares required for the King size - the correct number is 72.
If you need help cutting the squares, please call and leave a message at the store to arrange a time for a demo.
Please come to class with your squares and background fabric cut. You can use 10" of the background, which is a little less confusing, or cut according to the instructions on page 59. This will allow us to get right to work.
