It appears the links to fabric requirements, etc. Don't work. I've been on the fence about this one and wanted to read more. Thanks.

Melissa LaGreca said...

I preordered the kit but haven't received it yet!

There is no list of background amount needed - I am using a FQ bundle which should be plenty for the blocks.

Hi there Cheryl! We just checked and all seem to be working on our end! :) What can we help you with? The FAQ page link should have a lot of helpful information for you! :)

Fat Quarter Shop said...

Kits will be shipping out shortly! :) Please contact customer service if you have any questions at all!

I'm really excited that this fabric is finally here, and this quilt along is beginning! I can't wait to receive my kit, which I pre-ordered. I think it has shipped and will hopefully arrive tomorrow! I love the fabric by Bonnie and Camille that we're using for this quilt!!!
