Kit: $25.00 (Includes Pattern and Interfacing; paid separately to teacher). Kit makes lap quilt that measures 48”x60” with borders, and 36”x48” without borders.

Making it Larger? ½ yard each of Fabric 1 and Fabric 2 for each extra interfacing panel.

My sample has no borders and is 48”x60”. You would need 3 more interfacing panels to make a quilt the same size.
