I don't know about you, but I rarely purchase fabric just for a quilt pattern. Rather, I just purchase fabric - lots of it - and usually have enough for a quilt pattern....or two...or three! LOL!
I envy people who are more disciplined and purchase only what they need when they need it.
I am hoping this post will help those who are planning to pull from their stash and those who need an excuse to buy more! Really, does anyone need an excuse???
the template that I will post on Sunday is a finished 12 inch block.
As I said before, there are several companies who make Flowering Snowball templates and the list is growing...
if you come across a company I have not listed, either include it in the comments or email the name to me to be added to the list. I will add the list to the end of this post.
Yardage for a 12 inch block and a 48 X 48 inch quilt....good lap or baby size.
Fabric A and B (same template)....1 1/8 yards of each. If you are making a scrappy quilt, I would add these two amounts 1.125 + 1.125= 2.25 yards total
Fabric C ....1 3/8 yards
Fabric D ....1/8 yard
Out of a yard and an eighth of fabric you should be able to get 32 of template A cut....there are 4 of these per block... of course the same for template B
Out of a yard and three-eighths of fabric you should be able to get 64 of template C cut and there are 4 of these per block
If you plan on making a different size you should be able to adjust the fabric requirements fairly easily. I have not seen if any of the manufactured templates include fabric yardage requirements....I am still waiting for my templates to be delivered.
But if you are making a different size block and/or a different size quilt and need help deciding what the yardage should be...you can email me and I will try to help. I use the Electric Quilt program and have really enjoyed using it over the years. I would recommend a software program for anyone who does a lot of quilting and would like to design their own quilts or just work with different blocks and techniques. The EQ program has a block library and you can adjust the block size and the quilt size to suit your needs.
So here is the list for the manufactured templates...
Okay! I will see you Sunday with templates that you can print out on your own printer!
