Let’s talk today about what fabrics you’ll need for the Walkabout QAL.
This quilt can be sewn using your favorite scraps or fabric line. Plus, you’ll be using quite a bit of background fabric. You can choose if you go scrappy with this as well or just use one fabric.
- April 17th start date!
Walkabout Quilt Along
58″ x 61″
Tree: ½ yard
Flowers: ½ yard (includes petals, stems, leaves)
Traditional Quilt Blocks: ½ yard
House Blocks: 1 yard
Background: 3 yards
You’ll notice that the materials list is based on the pieces / quilt blocks that you are going to sew.
So the tree also includes the tree trunk. And the flower includes the petals, stems and leaves. Just so you know.
You’ll also have another page for tracking your progress. Both with the quilt blocks – there are check mark boxes for each block that you’ll need. They are different widths, but nothing is above 8 inches.
To the side of that, you’ll find a flying geese daily movement tracking area. Just remember that there is really no rule to this. You can choose what ‘movement’ is good for you. A walk around the block, 10 times on the stairs, 30 minutes on your treadmill, going to the gym. Whatever you do – it is fine.
Just be consistent with this. There is a total of 35 flying geese – so you have an opportunity to move for 35 days consistently.
Lastly, you’ll see a coloring page giving you an opportunity to play with your own colors and such.
