Raspberry and Lime...requirments list for E CLASS

E class.
This is the quilt for the e class. There is an optional border which I will include a separate requirements list you can see its not done on the sample yet  :) This is just to give you an idea so you can start collecting your fabrics whether its a scrap quilt you want to do or maybe you fancy a trip to your local quilt shop......
The hearts are appliqued on, so if you want to change to a different applique shape then that is no problem.


Requirement list for shiny new fabrics: size approx without border 64x64 inches

-8 fat quarters} 6 medium/dark and 2 light fabrics
background fabric 2 1/2 yards of light fabric - don't always go for white or cream, experiment with other light shades. this quilt is made with a light lime green background.
Sashing ( also used in blocks ) 1 3/4 yards 

optional border ( coming soon)
1 yard of light ( probably best to use the background fabric)
1  yard of medium darks ( or a collection of fabrics equaling this amount )

Binding- 20 inches

Requirement list for a scrappy quilt 

9 fat quarters} 6 medium/dark and  3 light fabrics or a load of pieces totaling this amount
EIGHTEEN  10 inch squares from a collection of light fabrics.
1 3/4 yards of sashing - even if you are doing a scrappy quilt its a good idea to tie the whole quilt together with 1 fabric

optional border ( coming soon)
1 yard of light ( or a collection of fabrics equaling this amount )
1  yard of medium darks ( or a collection of fabrics equaling this amount )

Binding 20 inches


  1. For scrappy: can you clarify what would constitute as the Rasberry (pink) and lime (blue?) is the pink the med/dark and the blue the light? and the 10 light are the whiteish? Sashing, pink.
