Art Quilting Class


FEBRUARY 2019

Greetings Art Gang!

Don’t you just love how many fancy stitches are built in to our machines? If we love them… why do we rarely use them???? Come join the fun as we use those fancy stitches to make a sensational quilt! We will learn to modify stitches, combine stitches, couch threads with decorative stitches and many new ways to use our fancy machine stitches. I’m also experimenting with the circular foot attachment and making fancy stitched circles!

 

Bring to Class:

  • Background fabric: ½ yard Batik or hand-dyed fabrics work best. Use fabrics with several colors but without obvious patterns. Think dull or subtle colors that will let the stitches pop! We can pick this in class if you prefer.
  • Basic sewing supplies: Scissors, seam ripper, machine needles etc.
  • Sewing Machine: bobbins, Zig-zag foot (fancy stitches foot/ clear if you have one). Optional: couching foot, circular foot attachment.
  • Thread: rayon, cotton, decorative… think variety and many colors.
  • Optional Extras: Pearl cotton, yarn, hand embroidery floss, rat-tail cord for couching. Anything goes! ½ yard pieces work well. We can share these in class!
  • Stabilizers: ½ yard Fusible Fleece (Pellon TP 971F) or any lightweight  fusible batting, ½ yard Stitch and Tear.

Be sure you name is on the list at Quilters Haven!

Sew Happy!
