    I am slowly collecting patterns and just got this one in the mail today.

    Do I have to use fat quarters in this pattern or can I use yardage?

    It's been a while since I made one but I am pretty sure that you can use yardage. Most of my "fat quarter" quilts have several pieces from yardage in them.

    You can always cut yardage into fat quarters if you need too.

    Thanks for the help! I would rather buy yardage than fat quarters.

    When I substitute yardage for a fq I will buy 1/3 yard for each one and it will be long enough to cut the pieces that you need, and then split the fabric on the fold and then cut the pieces out.
    So from the 12" length of cut fabric you would have a 12x21 piece, from which you would
    cut the 61/2 x 21 piece and then cut a 31/2x21 piece from this
    half and from the other 12x21 piece you would cut the other
    2 pieces then continue to follow the pattern as written. This
    is the way I work with not having to buy a full half yard to get
    the 18 inch length, yet still get the amount of pieces for the
    blocks.
