Welcome to Month 1 of the Summer on the Coast QAL!
Today we'll be focusing on yardage requirements and fabric selection. Click over to Craftsy to download a printer-friendly version!
This quilt can be made with yardage or scrappy – we’ve included the approximate number of yards you will need with a little bit of wiggle room, but feel free to add a little extra.
Sizes and approximate yardage:
Baby: 42x60 – 5 yards total, 2 yards background recommended
Throw: 60x60 – 6 yards total, 2.5 yards background recommended
Twin: 78x90 – 8 yards total, 3.5 yards background recommended
Note: yardage does not include binding or backing. If you would want to use one of your fabric groupings for your binding, add on an extra half yard for the baby and throw sizes or an extra yard for the twin size.
You can choose to use as many or as few fabrics as you choose - your quilt will truly be your own design (with a little bit of help from us, of course!) We would recommend using 4-6 different fabrics, but if you are working from at fat quarter bundle, we can make a few recommendations for that as well.
I will be using five different fabrics in my throw quilt version. Here are the yardages of each:
- Burgundy floral - 1/2 yard
- Burgundy tonal zig zag - 1 yard
- Denim tonal zig zag - 1 yard
- Olive tonal tiles - 1 yard
- Burgundy/denim/olive floral - 2.5 yards (I am considering this my background fabric)
