Before going through your scrap bins take a close look at the quilt to see what kind of fabrics the quilt maker used. You can click to enlarge. Obviously you can do your own thing too! Small quilts are a great way to use colors you wouldn't ordinarily use so think outside the box if you want.
This is what you'll need as far as fabric. (you won't need much) If you want it scrappy you'll need 36 different prints. The most of any one of these that you'll need is a 2" x 12" strip. (that isn't exact, just a general amount)
I am using mostly different colors of brown, a few indigo blue and a few pinks.
There are some wonderful cheddar prints and I have a few in my stash but I really wanted to use a solid cheddar. You will need enough cheddar to cut 12- 3 3/8" squares and 3- 5 1/4" squares. (that part is exact, so feel free to cut them now if you want)
You will see 2 shirting prints here but I ended up only using one. It made it much easier unless you want that part to be scrappy too. The original quilt maker used two shirtings.You will need about 5/8 yard for the light background.
You will need a place to layout your blocks as you assemble them. Look again at the original quilt and the color placement. I've had to keep my pieces on the design wall as I sew. I would never be able to keep it organized if I didn't.
There isn't anything complicated about the sewing so we should be able to have a lot of fun and not stress.
Cutting instructions tomorrow.....
