IMPROV QUILTING CLASS



Take a little journey into the world of art quilts.  Suzi will show you how to let loose of the need for a pattern and help you to design a one-of-a-kind piece for your home.  Your project can be a wall hanging, pillow, table runner, or whatever you desire.  Step out of the box and show your creative side!!  No artistic prowess or knowledge required!!

SUPPLIES:

 

  •          24” ruler, square ruler (9” – 16”)
  •         Shorter straight ruler
  •         Rotary cutter
  •         Cutting mat (everyone needs their own cutting mat)
  •         Piece of flannel or fleece to assemble your piece on (sized according to project)
  •         Pins
  •         Neutral thread to match fabrics

  •         Seam ripper
  •         Pen and paper for notes
  •         OPEN MIND AND LICENSE TO HAVE FUN!!

 

FABRIC SELECTION

  • Choose two printed fabrics that will create a color scheme and provide some texture for your piece.  
  • One should be a medium to large size print and the other should have some texture, but not compete with the other print. 
  • The remaining fabrics should be solids, hand dyes, grunge, or other types of simple background type fabrics in assorted colors.  
  • Try to stretch yourself into using more than a monochromatic color scheme. 
  • Aim for at least three different colors and make sure you have lights, mediums and darks. 
    Choose 10 – 12 fabrics total.  
  • If you are unsure about your selection, bring more and I will help you choose.
  • You will likely need about 1/2 yard of each of your main (printed) fabrics and fat quarters of the others.
  • If you want your main print to be a backing, get additional for your project.
  • Press fabrics before class and be ready to cut.
