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.
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.
