Mod Olives QAL ~ Fabric Requirements

We were excited to see lot's of interest for a QAL of one of our new designs and thanks to CraftyDeb we've named it "Mod Olives"! 

My sister Sherilyn came up with this design and I loved it so much, I figured out how to make it, of course with the Quick Curve Ruler!



The "Mod Olive's" QAL will start Saturday, February 1st and run for 6 weeks.

  The finished quilt will measure at 54" x 52" and there will be 48 blocks in all.

The fabric requirements are for the layout and fabric color placement I will be doing for my own quilt.  You're welcome to be creative with your blocks and layout but that may change the required fabric for your own quilt top.

Since I will be making my quilt along side with you I don't have a finished quilt top to show you but will explain it.  The 6 Mod Olive blocks you see above is one out of 4 groupings I will be making.  Each group will have a different solid color oval (diagram below).


Fabric Requirements for the above layout and design are:

(48) 6 x 8 rectangles prints (center diamonds)
or
(8) Fat Quarters (you will get six 6 x 8 rectangles per fat quarter)

1 3/4 yards for background fabric (light blue)

(4) 1/2 yards for solid color ovals (green, pink, yellow, teal)


I've got my fabric all ready to go!


If you're joining the QAL, I created a fun button!


Don't forget to join the "Mod Olives Flickr Group" and show everyone the fabrics your choose.  We would love to see what you come up with!

Really looking forward to this! I hope I can find one of those quick curve ruler things in a local store around here somewhere, as I just LOVE this pattern!

I'll have to dig through the solids pile, or make a road trip.

Glad to see I have time to gather fabrics together. (I still think these look like peas in a pod.) This will be fun to do. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's fabric choices...please post on Mod Olives page :D

The Quick Curve Ruler must be a popular item! I had a hard time finding it in stock in the online stores I frequent. Finally found one and ordered it over the weekend. I hope I get it on time to start the QAL right away so I don't get behind.
