How do you know what to pick and how much? Was it posted someplace and I missed it?

Ann Marie,
Good question. I hope I can give you a good answer.
There isn't any set rule on how much to buy or what to pick. I only bought background fabric and plan to use whatever is in my stash for the rest, but some of the others have purchased fabric that goes with the theme they have chosen, or the colors that they want to use in the quilt. If you are going scrappy you probably won't have to buy anything if you have it already in your stash.
Just 2 more days and we get to start! I am excited to see what we get to do for the first block!

There is no way of knowing for certain how much fabric we'll need. If you are worried about running out of background fabric, I suggest you over-guess OR do what I do, use a variety of background fabrics so it does not matter.

I like quilts with lots and lots of different fabrics and that is what I'm doing. I am purchasing 1/8 yard pieces for starters.
