Fabric scraps for each veggie (for example, orange for pumpkin)
Approximately 3/4 yard fabric for binding*, backing and border
Heat resistant batting such as Insulbright

  Pot Holders 1      Pot Holders 2

To Be Taught by Suzanne Shelton
Size: (As shown) 62-1/2” x 62-1/2”

The beauty of 3 Dudes is you can make whatever size quilt you want from 2-1/2” strips.
If you want to use a jelly roll you can make a good size throw or a baby quilt.
If you use half a jelly roll or (20) 2-1/2” strips you can do a table mat or runners.
If you just have 2-1/2” strips that you have cut you can make whatever size.
The height of your strip set determines the size of your blocks.

If you wish to make the whole quilt as shown, you will need:
1 roll 2-1/2" graded strips (Note: Strips must be 44” – 45” long)
1 roll 1-1/2” dark strips (Note: Strips must be 44” – 45” long)
