Fabric Requirements for Beginning Quilting

  • ¾ yard of Background (light)
  • ½ yard of Fabric ‘A’ (medium)
  • ½ yard of Fabric ‘B’ (dark)

The light, medium and dark colors should complement each other, but be different from the C and D fabrics. These three fabrics will make up the rail fence block.

  • ½ yard of Fabric ‘C’ (small center squares)
  • ¼ yard of Fabric ‘D’ (large outside squares)

The C and D Fabrics should be in the same color family, but different fabrics. These fabrics will make up the x design in the quilt. They are used in the Nine Patch block and the Offset 4 Patches. 

The following fabrics can be decided on later after starting on your quilt top.

  • 1 yard of Border Fabric
  • 2 5/8 yards of backing and batting
  • 1/3 yard for binding
