Supply List:  

A variety of fabrics, cut to 8 1/2” x 11”.

 - Each piece of fabric will result in one block, approximately 7” x 9” finished. 50 pieces of fabric will give you a lap quilt that is about 49” x 63”, but you can make your quilt as big or as small as you like.

 - Important: The fabrics should be a variety of lighter and darker colors so they will contrast well. Prints, solids and blenders all work well! 

One Fat Quarter or a variety of scraps for tree trunks

Rotary Cutter and Mat

Sewing machine with neutral thread

Ruler for squaring up blocks (I use a 9 1/2” square, but anything at least 9 1/2” in one direction will work.)
