- Various 11-1/2" Westalee Design Spin-e-Fex Templates
- Westalee Design Crosshair Square

Fabric, Batting and Backing:
- 1-1/2" Yard each Top Fabric, Peek A Boo Fabric, Batting, and Backing
- 1/2" Yard Binding and Sashing Fabric
- Piping for binding (shows a very thin line)- ½ yard
Peek a Boo fabric is the fabric that will show through the top fabric once you start cutting away. I like to use a fabric with “movement”, possibly lots of color. A batik works well. You can also make two blocks with a light (or dark) top fabric, and two blocks with the peek a boo as the top fabric, like I did.
