Bust Yo Scraps Quilt Along – Fabric Requirements

Y’all Ready For This?

Bust Yo Scraps!

Did you join the Flickr Group?

I am pumped that you guys are quilting along with me! I started making my first quilt with this pattern and it rocks. I’m using a Walk in the Woods Jelly Roll by Aneela Hoey. My sister is pregnant and I won’t know the sex for another month or so but, just in case it’s a girl… 😀

I’ve put together fabric requirements for 2 sizes of quilts, baby and lap size. This pattern is VERY precut friendly so if you have a layer cake or jelly roll in your stash wanting to be used here’s your chance! This is also a great way for those of you who don’t have a lot of scraps (yet) to make a scrappy quilt! There’s a lot of variation in the precuts. It’s difficult to give you exact measurements since we are using scraps so I am going to tell you how many of what size pieces of scraps you will need. So, if you have a scrap that is about 10″ x 5″ you can estimate that as (8) 2.5″ squares. Make sense? You don’t have to cut them now but you can if you are super excited!

I added the amount of charms or 10″ squares you will need in case you aren’t using a Moda brand precut (or if you have part of a layer cake or something in your stash). Moda precuts will always have the same amount of precut fabric pieces in them but other manufacturers usually just have 1 of each print of the line. There are also some Etsy sellers who make precuts of lines that don’t normally have them.

    I’m glad to have this info a little early so I can have more time to sort. It’s just amazing how many scraps I have in one drawer. They do really breed when we’re not watching, don’t they?

  3. Jacey says:

    It’s awesome of you to share a coupon! I’m not sure what I’ll use yet, and I don’t know that I’ll get started in an orderly fashion, but definitely excited to start scheming!

    I just discovered you and really want to get in on this, so I’d better make time soon to get at my mountains of not-so-organized scraps.

    I love it. Gotta start looking through my scraps to be ready.

  8. I like the design of this quilt it is quite nice. My wife is prego with a girl which is why I got into quilting in the first place (been doing this 1 month now). Will consider this for my next quilt for her.
