Second Tuesday of the month is FAT QUARTER TUESDAY at Season's of Home in Midway. When you buy 5 fat quarters, you get 3 FREE!
Cathy had a great example at our August guild meeting of a quilt you can make using 8 fat quarters - a Fat Quarter Tuesday Quilt!
You need 6 fat quarters for the center and 2 fat quarters for the binding. Cathy did hers on the bias. She said if you put 4 inch borders on it you need to buy 2 and 1/4 yards for the borders and backing, plus an extra 1/4 yard of contrasting fabric to add to the backing because the width of the fabric comes up a little short. She likes contrasting fabric on the back because she adds that 1/4 yard down the center for a little more pizazz! You can do whatever you want, if you want it to be the same continuous color, buy 2 1/2 yards for the border and backing.
Thanks Cathy for a super idea!
