For your convenience each Block is available here to download. Scroll down this page.

This is a reasonable sized quilt, 60” x 60” plus borders etc. There are 15 different blocks, all are now available (100 blocks to make in total).

There is a lot to read through but the instructions are there.

There are excellent YouTube videos, one for each block, on the Laundry Basket website Home Page. As there are no LQ meetings at the moment and you still feel you need to ask a question about making this Block quilt, you can contact Alyson.

“Alyson’s suggestion for fabric and quantities.

The pattern allows for a very scrappy approach if you don’t want to buy from scratch.

Lots of light background fabrics and then a two colour palette.  Mary and I have a large fabric stash and as an extra challenge we are only using what we have at home!
This will result in a less ‘designed’ quilt. I would think you would need equivalent of 6-8 light fat quarters and 8+ coloured fabrics. Edyta Sitar’s style is to use a variety of toning fabrics, dark to light in chosen colour palette, big print, small medium, dot, stripe for interest.
