- 24-30 Fat 1/8 pieces (11″ x 18″) or 12-15 Fat Quarters should be enough for getting started on the quilt blocks themselves and have yardage for the setting triangles as well for the prints version.
- If you are using a fat 1/8th bundle for your blocks – specifically a Happy Go Lucky fat 1/8 bundle - cut a 7″ square* from each fabric except the white on white dots (although I recommend not using the other prints with white backgrounds either, if you can avoid them). You will need 32 total 7″ squares. Set these aside for your setting squares when the blocks are finished.
- Sashing fabric: 1 1/2 yards (I’m using the white on white Lucky Penny dot)
- First border: 1/2 yard
- Outside border: 1 1/2 yards
- Binding: 1/2 yard
- Backing 4 yards *edited
(These blocks will be designed by 16 different people over the next 8 months, so I can’t predict the exact amounts, but this will be an adequate starting place. I will share yardage requirements for finishing the quilt as we get closer to finishing the blocks. There is more information about fabric requirements in POST 3: CHOOSING FABRIC.
