When looking for stripe fabric for this class - try and find something that has a variant in colour and stripe shape/width. Look at these examples:
|The fabric for my Broadwalk Quilt|
|Broadwalk - Class Sample|
|Fabric for Tunnel Vision|
|Fabric for Siren Song|
|Close up of Siren Song. Notice the quilting.|
In this two day class we cut, then layout the whole quilt before we sew. The cutting and layout will take most of the day. The quantity of fabric you buy is up to you and your budget. Any length from 1.5 metres upto 3 metres. The triangle size will depend on your stripe width repeat e.g. the finer the stripe, the smaller your triangle size. When cutting my fabric for the three quilts above I didn't use a ruler - I freeform cut. I used the ruler for trimming my fabric edge before cutting.
Part one of this class:
Striped fabric (quantities as above)
Large bed sheet (flannel if possible) to layout your triangles
Pins to pin your triangles into groups and into place on your sheet (dress making pins great for this)
Rotary cutter (preferably with new blade) and cutting board
Full length ruler (optional)
60degree Triangle ruler
Part two of this class:
Sewing machine with 1/4" foot attached.
Matching sewing thread with bobbin wound ready to go
New size 80/12 sewing machine needle
At the beginning of this class while we wait for everyone to get set up - take the opportunity to iron your fabric.
Have a Happy New Year. Happy stitching.
