Notes for BOM:
A number of people have asked if you really need 11 yards of background fabric. The answer is "YES," this is due to the amount of paper piecing in the project.
Also, the change noted below to the Month 1 pattern - Page 4 in the Month 2: Setting the Star on point; Making Half-Square Triangles section, does not affect the fabric requirements.
In Month 2 of the TQS BOM, you will be adding a border around your Halo Star block, setting it on point, and then adding a "floater" around the on-point block. You will also be adding a half-square triangle border.
In the small 'floater' strips surrounding the Center Block Unit the pattern calls for using Light Green (G). Our pattern tester, Carolyn Hock, substituted the Medium Green (E) as she felt it was less busy. But the choice of fabric for the floater is up to you Either way, you have enough of each fabric in your kit.
Here is an image that might make things clearer.
Don't forget to watch the instructional videos that accompany each month, hosted by Carolyn Hock. This month, Carolyn discusses thread choices for your quilt and how to deal with bobbins.
