I don't have a jellyroll or charm pack, so I was hoping to use existing fabric in my collection. Do you have a suggestion for how many different prints I should cut from? Do the 30 strips need to be 30 different fabrics or do you think it would be okay to get six strips from five fabrics?

I don't know if I'll be able to actually participate in the quiltalong (first priority is a baby quilt for babe due in Sept) but I adore this quilt and have the perfect fabric in mind. Can you tell me the dimensions? I'll want to make my quilt a bit bigger (for picnics/firework watching with kiddos) and need to figure out how much extra fabric to buy or if a jelly roll/cake will be enough to make it a little bigger.

Also--how long will the quiltalong run? Thanks!!!

Could I use charm packs instead of the jelly roll for this?

Hilary said...

I'm really excited! I just got an adorable FQ bundle that I think I am going to use for this :)

Marianne said...

I have a jellyroll I want to use for this so I will have to get hunting for some matching layer cake sheets and the rest. Excited!

Deanna said...

I am thinking to quilt along scrappy style! Great design.

So I am going to use some FQ I already had, but ordered the coordinating jelly roll of Lotta Jansdotter - I'll still need to decide on a background color. Maybe I don't need to decide that yet? I hope not, I have bolts of white and black, I will have to buy if I'm using another color and I wold like to see one of my blocks made first. Decisions decisions.
