The Christmas Town Sampler clues will be posted beginning July 2. Denise is the master of this project with my friends, Sheryl and Susan participating with us. Click on any of our blogs or on the button on my sidebar for more info.
This is the yardage info posted on Denise’s blog
YARDAGE INFO: We are giving the yardage for the background fabric and the fabric used for the sashing and borders. The yardage for the background fabric is an estimate on the higher side — it’s based on the image at the left with all the center blocks using just border fabric. Nearly all center blocks will have border fabric in them but not as much as is shown here. However, we’re erring on the side of having left over fabric rather than running short. Since you’re making blocks written up by four different people, it may not be the most judicious use of your fabric – hence erring on the high side. But keep those leftovers from month to month because you may be able to use them the following month so they are not wasted. Yardage for the other fabrics used throughout the quilt will not be given as this is a great scrap friendly, stashbusting project and half the fun will be picking the specific fabrics from your stash to make each block unique.
So for the larger version of the quilt: BACKGROUND YARDAGE — 5+1/4 yards; BORDER/SASHING YARDAGE — 3+1/4 yards (which includes binding).
For the smaller version of the quilt: BACKGROUND YARDAGE – 4+1/4 YARDS; BORDER/SASHING YARDAGE 2+1/4 yards (including binding).
I hope you’re planning to join us and do this fun mystery/blog hop type project!
