- How Much Fabric should I buy?
- The short answer is that there is no set supply list for this project. With 100 blocks you may want a variety of prints. We suggest a Fat Quarter Bundle of at least 25 to 35 fabrics to start. Then purchase several yards.. go for 3yds worth (all the same or scrappy).. of a basic that you can use in each block to unify them.
- We have 2 curated starter bundles of 20 beautiful FQs that you can use to kick start your blocks! BUY HERE You will want to add more as you go along!
