    Default Fabric amounts...

    I got a honeybun in Swanky to make a string quilt.I'm not making it for a bed, more or less a throw. I purchased 4 yards of coordinating solids to throw in there to stretch the fabric....but now I'm concerned because I have no clue if that is enough fabric or not. I don't expect it to be enough for the border, just the blocks. Any thoughts?

    I think you will be surprised at how big you will be able to make it, especially with an extra 4 yards of fabric. When Natalie was working on honey bun projects she was SHOCKED at how far it went. I haven't done an entire project out of one honey bun though, so I will be interested at how big your quilt turns out!!!

    Pics please (of course) and keep us updated!! I am so excited to see this out of Swanky....I love that line and LOVE string quilts!!

    Good luck!

    Whew! I feel so much better about it! I just didn't want to get through all the bun strips and end up with not enough blocks to do anything of much size.

    I LOVE Swanky too! I got yellow, orange, blue and brown solids to blend in and I'm VERY excited to start!

    At the shop...we have made several almost twin quilts using just one jelly roll. I have no doubt that you can make a good sized quilt with a honey bun and 4 yards of fabric! 4 yards is a lot !!

    I agree! It sounds like you have plenty of fabulous fabric! :P No worries and I can't wait to see some progress pics!
    To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.
