|4 Patch Posie Class
Monday, Jan 6th & 20th
Friday, Jan. 10th & 24th
Bring sewing machine and all supplies for the first class. Do not set up the sewing machine in the morning. Please have a fresh NEW blade in your rotary cutter as you will be cutting through 4 layers of fabric. You will need flower head pins. A 4 1/2 inch square ruler is nice to have but not necessary.
You will pick out your focus fabric in the morning. I like to use a 24 inch repeat and you will need 4 repeats for a lap size quilt (20 blocks). If you wish to make a queen size quilt you will need 8 repeats. (if you bring a fabric from home DO NOT pre-wash it). If your repeat is shorter than 24 inches you may need additional repeats.
The next step will be to stack, cut and arrange your fabric pieces.
Lunch break will be a potluck. I will bring a main dish - Ham & scalloped potatoes - then you can fill in around it. The shop will supply eating utencils & drinks.
In the afternoon you will set up sewing machines and begin chain piecing blocks. There will be a demo on this part. When 3 blocks are completed you will then pick the frame and sashing fabrics.
You will cut those and complete the first three blocks.
Your homework for the next 2 weeks will be to complete your blocks with framing and sashing.
Putting it all together. Bring your completed blocks, sewing machine and all your supplies as well as the leftover fabric. Lunch will again be potluck.
