Feature Fabric: 8 fat quarters is a safe bet
Background and Sashing: 2.5 of background fabric is generous, it allows for a little freedom when cutting.
Backing: 4 yds of standard 42" wide fabric will allow for extra if your quilt is being machine quilted. There's a great post over at the Missouri Star blog -https://blog.missouriquiltco.com/how-to-figure-yardage-for-quilt-backing/
Binding: .5 yard
How much fabric do you need?
That's a good question. When I designed this pattern using my EQ8 software, the fabric requirements were ridiculously high, no matter how I juggled colour placement. I purchased
all of the fabrics I used online and wanted to see them in person before I finalized my colour choices. So of course I ordered the complete range of every line, which is why some of my quilts used 8 fat quarters, some used 14. This quilt could be made with fewer fat quarters if using fewer colours.
It's always good to buy a little extra!
