What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just do it! As Cindy says it doesn't have to be perfect!
What you will need
While I was reading Cindy's 2014 edition of "Basic Wholecloth Quilts" I found the section entitled "Divide and Conquer" (p24-25) and found the inspiration to start to design a small wholecloth quilt. I already had a couple of sheets of foam
so cut out some shapes and measured and marked out a cloth at about placemat size. I used Cindy's "Heirloom Backgrounds" to find the patterns to fill the spaces. Little did I know that this would be covered also in this class! So this quilt was done before I attended these lessons. I used: 100% cotton fabric (white)
