I haven't used any of the kits (all of my BOMs have been scrappy) but I do know that Sue tries to allow extra because not everyone is really frugal with their cutting, and she wants to make sure that if someone makes a cutting error or if they decide to use a different fabric somewhere, that there will be enough to cover those choices. Better to have too much, than to risk running out and not being able to get replacement fabric.
It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter
That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived !
Now that a lot of you have finished the 2009 BOM, I was just wondering how the amount of fabric that was in the kit worked out. Was there any left or did it work out to be just about right. I am very slow and only working on May, but I will use the excuse that I was traveling in our Motor Home for 7 months. With 2 of those months spent in Alaska. Although I didn't get a lot of sewing done I did try to hit most of the quilts shops we passed.
