Allllright! It's time to pick out fabric!
Can I just say how excited I am that you're here? I'm seriously so stoked! So are you ready to pick out some fabric? Sometimes this is either the most fun or most stressful part! But let's make it fun. With this pattern, there is quite a bit of background needed, but you can use either yardage, fat quarters, or 4" squares for the colored parts. Lots of possibilities! Here's a recap on fabric requirements.
Whatever fabric you select, be sure to give it a good press to make cutting more accurate and quicker. Plus, I think it's kinda relaxing to iron pretty fabric. But don't ask me what my ironing pile looks like for clothes. ;)
Looking for a gorgeous kit for the quilt along?
There are two beautiful kits (still in stock!) curated for the quilt along. I'll be using a kit by Midlife Quilter that is to die for! There's also a fabulous kit by Modern Vintage Handmade that I couldn't resist as well! Check them out below!
I can't wait to see what you've selected for your fabric pull! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @compassandwildflower and use the hashtag #NylaStarQAL so I can see what you've picked out!
We also have an AMAZING longarm sponsor for the quilt along! I'm so excited to share that Joyce at Eva Mae's Custom Quilts will be our sponsor. She's actually one of my pattern testers and her work has been featured in many Art Gallery Fabrics Look Books. She's simply amazing! see below for details.
