FABRIC:  Each cube will be made up of two different color families.  After choosing the two color families you wish to use, select a light, medium and dark of each color.  

Make sure the fabric is not a busy fabric, more tone on tone.   

A fat quarter or so is fine for each value.  Each cube can be a different set of color families if you wish.

You can use Karen's gradated fabric in this class.  (You can see them here.

As another option, you can purchase the Patchwork Illusions kit which will have 2 yards of different gradated fabrics, the Patchwork Illusions pattern, templates and a Value Viewer.   (You can see the kit here.)


Once your guild has booked this class, Karen will send a link so you can see a video about fabric selection and preparing your fabrics. You will need to do this before our class.  (Link coming soon)
