Yes indeed-y! A fabric yardage guide is included in the course, along with basic sewing supplies needed. The Florid Blooms DWR template set and arc paper pieces, along with other supplies are listed above, as well as within the course.
Do I have to buy the acrylic templates?
For precise cutting and ease of construction, I recommend my VFW Quilts Florid Blooms DWR acrylic template set (available at vfwquilts.com). As an alternative, in my Double Wedding Rings book, there are paper patterns that you could use instead. Due to the large size of the pieces, there are no paper patterns included in this course.
