Nebula is a block of the month quilt made with the Hex N More & Super Sidekick rulers, templates are included in the pattern. It will be available in early 2021 but ask your local quilt shop about ordering it now. This is a collaboration with FreeSpirit Fabrics and it features Tula Pink True Colors fabric line. Shops, reach out to your FreeSpirit rep about ordering Nebula kits & e-mail us if you have any questions.

Sign up here to receive the monthly emails throughout the Nebula sew along.

The Nebula pattern will contain finishing directions for 3 sizes. Most shops will be offering the Queen size. For the Queen size you'll need 8 3/4 yards of 40" wide fabric for backing. Alternatively you can use 3 yards of 108" wide back.

The 18 blocks in Nebula are created using 74 Fat Eighths. The background fabric varies based on which size you are making. Details are below in the next 2 images.


The Large Lap uses less background fabric than the Queen. If you sign up for the program you can use the additional fabric to create a scrappy quilt back or for another project.

For the Large Lap size you'll need 7 1/8 yards of 40" wide fabric for backing. Alternatively you can use 2 1/2 yards of 108" wide back.

The King size will require some additional fabric beyond the Queen size. Here are the details so you can plan ahead if this size interests you. Please note this shows the total fabrics needed.

For the King size you'll need 10 yards of 40" wide fabric for backing. Since the quilt is 108" tall it is not ideal to use a 108" wide back.

I just saw this and would like to join. Hope I can get caught up and it is not too late. I will use fabrics from my stash first and then go from there. And will look into the rulers if you say I can begin.
