Fabric Notes: The class sample uses the same fabric for BE6 and BE7, but the pattern allows for each spike to be split
down the center into two colors, if desired. The finished quilt size is 40”, which is 2-4” smaller than the typical width of
fabric. If you plan to quilt on a domestic machine and don’t need a lot of backing overhang, you could use a 1-1/4 yd cut
for the backing instead of the 2-3/4 yd called for in the pattern.
