Bountiful Bouquet Fabric Choices

Thanks for joining in!

I am using this fabric:

which is almost the same as the very delicious Acorn Hollow which is what I made my first version from.  I brought it all from The Fat Quarter Shop, but feel free to use whichever fabric your heart desires, from your favourite quilting shop.
For your reference, I bought the following:

2.5 yards Bittersweet Cream Antique Ivy SKU 2093/7 (this will be our outer border)

.5 yard Bittersweet Cream SKU 2094/7 (one of the background fabrics)

.5 yard Bittersweet Ecru Spearmint SKU 2095/72 (one of the background fabrics)

.5 yard Bittersweet Moss Antique Ivy SKU 2093/48 (a green)

.5 yard Bittersweet Plum Galaxy SKU 2098/60 (a plum for the inner border)

.5 yard Bittersweet Spruce Antique Ivy SKU 2093/40 (a green)

.5 yard Forever Spring Butter Pathways SKU 4260/30 (this is from a different Nancy Halvorsen range for backgrounds)

1 yard Bittersweet Plum Spearmint SKU 2095/60 (another plum, I'm thinking binding)

1 Fat Quarter Bundle Sour Grape Bittersweet (contains 18 fat quarters)

1 Fat Quarter Bundle Berry Burst Bittersweet (contains 18 fat quarters)

This quilt was designed to be semi-scrappy so it's hard to quantify just how much fabric you will need and I really don't know how much of those fat quarters we'll have left over.  But as long as you have enough backgrounds and enough greens, plus the yardage for the outer borders and bindings, you should be able to wing the rest.  We'll cut the full width of the fabric for the outer borders as I don't like to join those.

As some of the appliqued rows use the full width of the fabric, it's important that each background measures 43 inches or more.

(it's not the end of the world if yours is a little short, of course.  Everything can be adjusted as we go along, but it'll be easier if your maths matches mine).

I pinched these graphics from the Benartex website, I hope they don't mind.  But having a copy to print should be easier for you guys.

If you see that little green printer button below, clicking on it should print this post out for you.  I suggest you print out all the instructions for safe keeping, though I don't plan to take my posts down.  The print goes slightly wonky in places (the word wrap is playing up and I don't know how to fix that but I'll keep trying.  If you change the print font/size to 10 it will look slightly better)

So in the next week, I'll give you the proper requirements list, and we can get going!  I plan to do twelve months of instalments beginning in the first week of October. 

Best of luck, please feel free to leave me a comment if you have a query (I'm a little hopeless checking the email address so the comment way will be the quickest).  And remember I'm a newbie to this, so be gentle!
