Finally getting onto ordering material for my first ever quilt which is going to be a single sized Hungry Caterpillar quilt for when Frankie turns 2 in December.
I have picked coordinating fabrics, but not really sure how much to get - do you normally really plan your layout, or just buy a few yards then see what you can do?
I have a panel and 3 fabrics for the front of it, I am thinking a yard of each of the 3 might leave me a little short, given that the fabric isn't as wide as a quilt needs to be? Pick one to get 2 yards of?
Do you normally do a binding round the edge that coordinates with both sides?
Should I really plan then buy, rather than buy, then make it up
You know who I am! Mum to DS1(6), DS2(4), DD(4), DS3(3).
