When selecting colorful fat quarters for the Fancy Forest quilt,
choose colorful fabrics in sets of 5 monochromatic fat quarters each.
The quilt will be most successful if the fabrics in each set include a
value scale from lightest (Fabric 1) to darkest (Fabric 5). A complete
list of the colorful fabrics used in this quilt is included in the pattern. The background fabric is Robert Kaufman’s Essex yarn-dyed linen blend in
Olive. The white and dark block detail fabrics are Kona Snow and
Because of the wide variety of blocks and colors used in the quilts,
you will not end up using the same amount of each fat quarter and, in
some cases, will have fabric left over. If you prefer, you can easily
substitute scraps or odd-sized fabric from your stash for the colorful
fat quarters. The instructions for each of the block designs include a
complete list of cut pieces for each block, so it’s easy to use scraps
or make blocks for other projects.
