Tradewinds strip piecing Quilt top




 

Supplies:

  •        Sewing machine in good working order with a new needle and a ¼” foot, power cord & foot control
  •        2 ½” strips (Bali Pops or cut your own from your stash!)
  •        4 ½” strips from coordinating fabric (this should be a lighter coordinating color)
  •        50 weight Aurifil thread (I like to use either a light tan or grey for piecing)
  •        NEW 75/11 universal needle
  •        45 mm Rotary cutter with new blade- please bring your own cutter
  •        Rotary cutting mat (we will have a mat for you to use in the classroom)
  •        Travel iron with wool mat for pressing (or use the classrooms)
  •        Best Press spray (please bring your own “flavor”)
  •        Sewline Glue Stick
  •        Thread snips
  •        Tradewinds pattern and Strip Tube Ruler – included in class fee

 

Come to the first class with your strips cut and sorted into dark and medium colors.

Goal of the first class is to stitch, press and cut your strips using the Strip Tube ruler and assemble at least one block!  Your homework is to finish the number of blocks for the size quilt you are making.

 

At our second class, you will lay out your quilt top, twisting your blocks to make your design and stitching them into rows.  Please bring a Sewline Glue stick and Sue will show you the easiest way to nest and match your seams!! To finish your quilt top, you will need 2 ½” strips for the inner border

 and 4 ½” strips for the outer border (check the pattern for the number of strips that you need for the size of quilt you are making).

 

While making this quilt, you will learn techniques to help you improve your quilt making skills!!
