Planview Quilt Along - Fabric Requirements

The Planview quilt requires 6 fabrics: a background fabric (BG) and 5 fabrics for the central design (Fabrics A-E). For my sample lap size quilt, I opted to move around the color wheel for my central fabrics and use a contrasting fabric for the background.

The pattern is written using the colorway of the lap size quilt that I sewed up earlier this year. When selecting your fabrics keep in mind that the Planview design lends itself best to small scale, non-directional prints.

To allow plenty of time for your fabric considerations, the next set of instructions will be released on January 5th, 2022. To get started, click on the big blue button below to download the fabric requirements and coloring pages!

Fabric Kits

Planview Quilt Along sponsor Sewtopia is offering two lap size Kona Cotton kits for the quilt along. Not interested in making a lap size version? Shop sponsors Sewtopia or Fat Quarter Shop (affiliate link) using the fabric requirements to get the yardage you need for the size you want to make using the detailed fabric suggestions below.

Cool Progression Colorway 

The Cool Progression is color matched to the sample lap quilt that I pieced. It uses:

Lava Colorway

Note that you should not feel constrained to stick to a particular color order; I rearranged placement for the Lava colorway (switching the C and D fabrics in color progression order) because I like the way the design looked better when I used the coloring page!

Other Colorway Options

Want to use the Northcott Fabric prints I used for my sample quilt? I have identified online shops that carry all the fabric. Note that I sourced these shops a few months ago and some of them only have a little yardage remaining. I'm providing as many options as I can and some may sell out quickly based on demand.

Quilter's Cupboard - Ontario, Canada

KTR Sewing Center - Manitoba, Canada

Quilter's Candy Shop - Nebraska, USA **Note: They sell in half yard increments

Other Stores in the US that Carry Fabrics A-E

Always Quilting - California

Burkholder Fabrics - Pennsylvania

Other Stores in the US that carry the Background

Warm Colorway in Kona Cottons

Berry Colorway - Ruby Star Society Speckled Fabrics

Another option to consider: use a single fabric for both D and E, like I did for the berry colorway shown above. If you like this option, remember to add the yardages for Fabric D and E together to get enough fabric!

Evergreen Colorway

Another option to consider: Use the same fabric for Fabric A and the Background Fabric, like I did for the Evergreen colorway shown above. If you like this option, remember to add the yardages for Fabric and the Background Fabric together to get enough fabric!
