Fabric requirements:
You may use quilted pieces that are ready for binding.
You must have 5 square or rectangular quilted pieces ready to be bound, minimum perimeter of 80” or more.
Alternatively, you may wish to prepare 5 identical samples:
To prepare 5 20” x 20” samples using 1 fabric, you will require 3 yards of fabric for both sides of all 5 quilted

  • ¾ yd will make one sample piece (both sides).
  • Batting: 1 ¼ yd of 96” wide or use scraps
  • Binding requirements:
  • 1 FQ for bias binding
  • ½ yd for 4 samples
  • ¼ yd contrast for flanged binding

If you wish, you may make Preemie quilts for donation to the neonatal care unit at Ottawa Hospital.

*Polyester is not allowed in the fabric or batting due to static charging.
