Do you love but avoid the traditional one-patch? Handwork is wonderful, but let’s explore an innovative machine technique, useful for any pattern that would be English paper pieced, without compromising the integrity of the original. We begin with hexagons, then move quickly to a Sunburst star (like in the pictured quilt, simplified for class). You’ll enjoy having this in your bag of tricks!
Machine not required for this workshop.
No kit fee! The pattern will be emailed to you after your register for the workshop.
· 10-15 fat quarters (or equivalent) from stash, some of which should read solid.
· fabric scissors
· rotary cutting tools
· invisible monofilament thread
· offset tweezers (optional)
· straight pins
· pin-able ironing personal ironing board (pins will stand straight up during use - June Tailor Cushioned Quilter’s Square ’n Blocker from JoAnn is best; doubled, covered foam core also works)
· personal craft iron, optional
· poster board, one big sheet or equivalent (heavier than card-stock but lighter than cardboard)
· retractable box cutter or exacto knife
· Elmer’s washable school glue, or other basting glue (glue-pen or the smallest bottle - not a glue stick for this)
· If you have some 1” pre-cut paper hexagons, pull a few out! Otherwise, we’ll make our own.
Note: If you have Dollar Tree, they sell box cutters, glue pens & poster board
