Each person will need to prepare 2 - 22” x 36” quilt sandwich (2 pieces of fabric with a piece of batting between them). Eva recommends using a solid light colored fabric so you can see your stitching more clearly. Easiest way to prepare fabric for the quilt sandwich would be to take one yard of fabric and cut down the fold for two pieces. Cut the batting to fit evenly between the two pieces of fabric. Use high quality batting - low loft (Eva recommends Hobbs 80-20 batting).
