  • Batting (I used Warm and White®)
  • Quilter's ruler and rotary cutter
  • Scissors that can cut paper
  • The paper piecing pattern or the spool center (add link for download)

  • 4 straight pins (really, just 4)

Cutting Instructions:

NOTE: Don't cut the spool fabric! You will paper piece that and will cut during that process.

  • 8 – 11-1/2" x 2" strips of the grey fabric
  • 16 – 2” squares from the grey fabric
  • 1 – 22-1/4" x 2" strip from the grey fabric
    NOTE – The rest of the grey is for binding. I cut mine at 2-1/4" strips.
  • 8 – 11-1/2" x 2" strips from the white fabric
