  • Background Fabric – Bring a wide selection of prints to use in the backgrounds  this is where a laundry basket or a box works great
  • Bring colors you love and look at my website to see the backgrounds others have done.  Stripes, florals, themed fabric…try to avoid the regular backgrounds and go for other fabrics you love
  • Fat Quarter is fine for some, but you also need some fabric that is the width of the fabric, Don’t worry, I’ll show you how to make it work!
  • Since some of you want a ‘number’ of pieces, please bring at least 20 different fabric choices, but more is WAY better (see the backgrounds on my blog)
  • Bring a selection of accent fabrics for strips and spacers.  Bring as much selection as you can
  • Applique Fabric
  • Fat Quarters to 1/2 yard pieces for flowers, leaves, baskets, beeskep…etc.  Bring as much as you can.  You will use these to audition.
