This is our September workshop which is a quilt as you go Bargello. I am giving the fabric requirements now so you have over the summer to collect your fabrics.
The class is being taught by Helen Zylstra and Dorothy Sohm.
You will need.
1/3 yard of a feature fabric. This runs the around the whole design and needs to be darker than all the other fabrics.
1/4 yard each of 7 fabrics running from dark to medium
1/4 yard of 7 different fabrics running from medium to light
4 yards of background fabric also used for the backing and binding
1 3/4 yards of grid flannel, the type you use for design walls
You can also make the quilt top using the traditional sewing and add your batting and backing and quilting later. If you choose this method, you don't need the grid flannel.
CHOOSE FABRICS WITH LOTS OF INTEREST. CHECKS, SMALL PRINTS AND PLAIDS ETC. YOU SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE A FEW FABRICS THAT CAN READ AS SOLID SUCH AS A BATIK OR MARBLE. DON'T USE LARGE PRINTS.
