i'm planning on ordering the turning twenty quilt pattern from a website, but i have a question. are you supposed to use 20 different fat quarters for the top, or double up on 10 different FQs or what? i'd like to go get the fabric so i can be ready to cut when the pattern arrives.

thanks for your help!

I just finished my first Turning Twenty Quilt. I have made around 20 quilts, and this one was by far the easiest and quickest quilt of them all.

I used twenty different fat quarters, though I think you could use fewer if you needed to. However, it could make it more difficult to lay out the quilt if you had fewer than twenty. You don't want any of the same fabric to touch. That process took me a while to do- getting the same fabrics apart AND getting a good color balance.

Good luck! You'll have fun with it- it's a low stress pattern. Smiley

I've never heard of this sort of quilt, what does it look like?
