During class we will focus on learning techniques to piece the following blocks, which finish 7 square.
Assorted scraps for blocks, fat or long quarter yards work well. You will need a variety of reds for the hearts in medium and dark values. I suggest 9 different fabrics minimum for a wall sized quilt. Stars, and companion blocks can be pieced in any colors that you desire. Having a variety of medium and dark values is more important than color choice.
A light background fabric should be selected which will unify the blocks. A wall sized quilt requires ½ yard of background fabric.
Five different white and red fabrics are needed for the large Log Cabin borders. They should progress from mostly white with a little red, to mostly red with a little white. Long quarter yards work best, but fat quarters may be used.
Also, a final border of darker red fabric can be added. A long quarter yard is sufficient.
Bring fabric that is prepared to work with. Which means, pre-wash if you are going to pre-wash (sometimes I do, and sometimes I dont). Either way, press the fabric, and re-fold with the selvedge edges together, so that the folded edge is also even (no bunches).
