Just watched the first tutorial and I can not wait to make this adorable block!! Thank you so much!!
I'd like to use my own yardage but can't find the fabric requirements. I have a fat eighth bundle of 25 prints and would like to know how much plain yardage I need to go with it.
Carole Bowers - The info you need is here: http://www.fatquartershop.com/patchwork-quilt-along-quilt-kit just scroll down and it gives the amount :)
I can't find fabric requirements for those of us that want to us our stash. Not in the link you provided.
Quilts but LaurelThis is what the kit contains. One 72-piece Print custom Jolly Bar of Bonnie & Camille BasicsOne 72-piece Background custom Jolly Bar (SKU # 55023-38 from Bonnie & Camille Basics)4.125 yards of fabric to finish the 58.5” x 68.5” quilt top and bindingBlock One Pattern, Block Two Pattern and Finishing Kit patternI'm not using Jolly Bars so how much yardage do I need for the background? Is that 4.125 in addition to the Jolly Bars?Thank you
Yep, I'm with Carole. Where is the yardage required the link on the blog goes nowhere. Please help 💕❤💕
Right, Barbara. I'm really trying to use stash on this quilt along but don't want to start only to run out of background fabric which I'll then be unlikely to find a match for. I guess to be safe I could restock this background color since I'm running low.
The link to the fabric requirements doesn't go anywhere. I want to use Moda fabrics I already have in my stash but before I start would want to feel confident I have the required amounts. Thanks!!!

My question concerns the quilt kits: Have they already been mailed out? I pre-ordered my kit in 2016.
I am not seeing any fabric requirements for those of us using our own fabrics instead of the kit.
I would like the fabric requirements as well
Please create a Fabric Requirements PDF for this project like you did with the other Donation Quilts. Thank you. ljbisme at msn dot com
I, too, would like to have the fabric requirements, as I am intending to use my own fabrics on hand. Thank you...A PDF for Fabric Requirements would be appreciated.
I have done other quilt alongs with you and I'm pretty sure you always had a downloadable page for fabric requirements. Some of us like to use different fabrics than the "kit" and need to know how much background fabric we will need to finish all of the blocks the same so we have enough and don't run out. Also how much yardage for border and backing???
I am also looking for fabric requirement, please.
I can't find the fabric requirements either!!
Love to start this new BOM but need fabric requirements! This would be my 3rd quilt with Fat Quarter Shop! thanks!!
fabric requirements stated one 72 piece print jolly bar and one 72 piece solid jolly bar. A jolly bar is typically 42 pieces of 5" x 10". So you could buy 1 layer cake of print and one of solid and have what you need. A layer cake will be 10" square of 42 pieces and if you cut them in half to be 5" x 10" you get 84 pieces. Enough to cover the 72 piece jolly bar requirement. obviously you could use jelly rolls and 5 " squares and other sorts of precuts, but since we don't technically know what size pieces we will be cutting, it could be a problem to have a 2 1/2" jelly roll and not be able to make a cut. I think the best option is 1 layer cake print and 1 layer cake solid if you aren't using jolly rolls. IMHOKim
Some of us DON'T want to use jolly bars, layer cakes or any other precuts. That is why we are asking for fabric requirements.
I'll just make each block and fly by the seat of my pants like I do everything else. I've got plenty of fabric to choose from.
Jolly bars are 5x10Layer cakes are10 x 10, and jelly rolls are2 1/2 inch strips. With those dimensions, you can do the math to figure out what you need. Have fun!
I have always found quilters to be very helpful to other quilters. I could not believe some of the comments that were of no help to those of us who wished to use up our stash. Tuesday morning found all of the fabric needed for this quilt listed. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!!

I am a beginning quilter, as in never quilted before and I really would like to be a part of this project. What are your thought with me doing this? Do you feel that it might be to much for me to take on. I am cautious because of the cost of fabric that you invest and I don't want to ruin it. If I get stumped I could always go to my local quilters store.
Glenda, do you have any sewing experience? My suggestion is to do a beginning quilt class at you LQS or an online class on Craftsy.com first.This quilt isn't that difficult but I think some basic experience would benefit you.
I am using your kit. Will I need the scraps from cutting the January block for future blocks or can I use them for something else?
I'm pleased with the patterns. Using up scraps, doubled the measurements for either a large quilt or two twin quilts. My background pattern is brown and I'm using scraps of brown there too. If they aren't an exact match I think it will just add to the uniqueness. First two set of blocks have gone together quickly and easily.
Without having seen all the finished patterns, it appears that this quilt can be made with:2 Jolly Bars (5"x 10")1 Layer Cake (10"x 10") cut into Jolly Bars12 Fat Quarters (18"x 22") each cut into 6 Jolly Bars1 Jelly Roll* (2½" x 40") cut into 10" strips *Since I haven't seen all the patterns, this one is iffy. It is possible that there will be some pieces that are wider than 2½". If so, you might have to piece it together to get the width needed.
The fabric yardage is just above the blocks you download.
I live in England and will donate to our 'make a wish' I hope that is okay with you. Sorry I am no reply, my email below
I would rather donate to the Alaska chapter of Make-a-Wish to benefit Alaskan kids. Will there still be a matching fund opportunity? I am sewing up my blocks in pinks, greys, yellow, beige, sage green and making many more to end up with a large twin size. Loving these little blocks!
I'm having trouble printing block #4. Blocks 1-3 printed up fine. Thanks!!
it's working now. Thanks!!
We love hearing from you!
