In this class you will learn how to stack fabrics and fussy cut in multiple layers, and how to cut triangles from strips.
You will take home a finished top for a wall quilt (see pg 17). It's a fast, fun, and attractive project for skill levels from beginner to intermediate.
6 hours that can be broken down into 2 three-hour classes.
Class Supply List
Simply Triangles by Barbara H. Cline
6" x 24" rotary ruler
Rotary cutter and mat
8" 60-degree Creative Grids Triangle
Best Press spray starch (the block layout in this quilt is triangles, so this is a wonderful time to introduce Best Press spray starch which will limit the diagonal edges from stretching)
Each student will need their own sewing station with a sewing machine.
- Pick two large print fabrics, one with large designs and has at least a 7" repeat or more. The second fabric also needs to be a large print with at least a 7" repeat or more, but with a more subtle design. There must be a nice contrast between these two prints.
- Follow cutting directions on page 18. Notice the two large prints will be cut lengthwise on the center fold. Continue to cut each fabric according to directions.
- Lay out triangle blocks according to diagram on pg 19.
- Sew triangle rows together, then sew rows together.
- Add borders according to book's instructions (option for the borders - you can choose to make block corners instead of mitering them)
