Requirements:

  • Pattern
  • Fabric requirements for quilt size of your choice (see pattern). Be sure when picking your fat quarters to avoid any with white background so the “donuts” will pop. (The shop sample is the lap size.)

  • One piece of template plastic to make template from pattern or The Super Sidekick Ruler by Jaybird Quilts. (I will have mine there and am willing to share).
