From Nancy - "What I love about this pattern is that it can be made using your stash. And, it has a one block unit... so you learn the Quiltworx foundation paper piecing process really well. Some may say it is boring but I believe it is important to get the basics learned AND it will look beautiful when finished.
Desert Sky uses Fat Quarters, and everyone I know has FQ’s! You will need 12 light and 12 dark, which you will pair a light with a dark. In total you will need 24 FQ's. You really want contrast so when you piece the block you see the awesome floating points that Judy Niemeyer is famous for!"
