Please read over pattern before class and decide what size quilt you want to make. If you are making the 80 x 80 quilt; decide if you want to square it up; and purchase fabric accordingly. You will not need any more foundation papers other than what is in your box if you decide to square up the quilt.
When selecting your strip sets, the more fabric colors you use the more beautiful it will be. Judy has on the market now 2 ½ inch strips designed for wedding ring quilts. Your quilt shop can order them for you.
Judy has designed a wedding ring set of rulers. I strongly recommend you purchase this; it is very helpful and helps you to be more accurate in your cutting. This ruler is made by Creative Grids and your quilt shop can order it for you.
