One Block Wonder

Date:  Saturday, February 3rd
Time:   10am - 3pm
Cost:   $20.00 must purchase book
Teacher:  Cindy B.

*No fussing cutting necessary
*uses just one single fabric
*NO Y seams needed

Here are tools and supplies I recommend for the quilters who register: 
*a stack of 100 inexpensive white paper plates (for keeping the cut hexie block triangles separate until sewing is complete and design is finalized)
*purchase of a single fabric length of at least 6 repeats of quilt-shop quality fabric (7 repeats is highly recommended) ***See note below regarding fabric image considerations for what makes a GREAT OBW...and what to avoid.*** 
*matching thread--100% cotton thread for 100% cotton fabric

*54" x 70" (or in that ballpark) felt-backed vinyl table cloth to use on floor or table for a portable "design surface" which will roll up to go with design in place if time does not allow for full construction of the quilt top (NOTE: many cheap vinyl table cloths claim "felt backing," but whatever that fibrous stuff is, it isn't felt..if a participant does purchase one like this, pins will work to anchor to the table cloth back OR a section of cotton batting or inexpensive felt yardage laid out on the back of the vinyl table cloth will also work.)
*flat-head (flower head) pins are essential because they lessen distortion while cutting and designing (the triangles are sensitive to stretch because only one edge of the triangle falls on-grain).
*basic machine with fresh needle (walking foot is not needed for our class)
*larger size rotary cutter with fresh blade is essential for cutting 7 layers at once. A spare blade is also recommended. 

*optional but recommended: 60 degree ruler with all three points (if quilter already owns one with a blunted point, we can use that too) OR a 6x12 or 8x12 quilter's ruler with degree angles on it works too.  I will bring a triangle ruler and a 6x12 also.

NOTE:  Teacher is providing soup.  Please bring a dish to share.

Floral Menagerie Quilt Block of the Month

Beginning in February

This is a very easy quilt.  The hardest part for me is the machine applique, which I have been diligently learning.  Suprisingly it's not that hard!
We will be doing this as a Sew A Long with Lisa.  We will meet on the first Wednesday of each month for 12 months from 10-4.  Bring a dish to share for a potluck lunch.
