I purchased this Amy Butler pattern and it says to use 2 and a half metres of fabric - I used this beautiful fabric
And after I laid out the pattern I discovered that 1.5 metres was more than ample fabric for this pattern this was using directional fabric - so if you were using a fabric that was not directional you would not need even 1.5 metres - as you can see I have
pin cushions etc. Will post a pic once I have completed the
top - don't hold your breath!
