What will you need for the club? Well, for starters, you'll need a computer and printer to print your patterns on. Unlike most PDF patterns that you can simply read from your computer or chosen e-reader, you will need to print the paper templates to sew on in order to work on each month's block. You'll also need some fabric that you love. How much? Good question. :) Foundation paper piecing is notorious for using up a lot of fabric, but I will be providing cutting instructions for each block to minimize waste.
Here is rough estimate of the fabric you'll need for the club:
* 35-40 various fat quarters, or 9-10 half-yard cuts of your choice
* 4 yds background fabric for blocks
* 1 1/4 yds for sashing and borders
I'll be raiding my stash for this quilt, for an eclectic, scrappy look, with various low volume prints and light colors for my background fabrics.
What do you say, are you ready to paper piece along with me?

I'm really excited about giving this BOM a try, I sure hope that you're excited too :)
