Fabric Requirements: Fabrics will be cut during class. You will want to have a least four different fabrics to work with during class. Depending on how you decide to construct your second block, you may even want to consider bringing some fabric that could be fussy cut in approximately a 2" square or so.
Maximum size square of fabric that you will need during this lesson will be a 5 1/4" square. Therefore, a fat quarter of each fabric (4 different fabrics) will be more than enough fabric for you to practice the Birds of Paradise unit.
