Fabrics will be cut during class. Therefore, the fabric requirements are healthy amounts so that you can make your own design choices during class.
For course 1-901, we recommend the following yardage:
(2) 2.5" x WOF strips of one fabric for the diamond center
(2) 3" x WOF strips of contrasting fabric for the side triangles or background of the units.
If possible, Please bring units made from other classes with you to class.
