strip tease quilting series
Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9:30 AM - Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 1:00 PM (CDT)
Two sessions: Saturdays, March 22 and 29, from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Experienced beginners and intermediate sewists are invited to check out what Betty Nowak's got up her sleeve! In fact, participants will use special rulers to create fabric sleeves of their own, which will be cut and arranged into fabulous quilt tops. (The rest of your clothing will remain on and in tact.) While the finished products might look neat and orderly, the process is full of surprises! Betty will also talk about making the quilt sandwich, machine-quilting techniques, and the binding process.
In addition to the series fee, students will need to purchase/provide one Strip Tube ruler, thread, 1/2 of a yard of 4 different fabrics (1 dark, 2 mediums, and 1 light), 1/4 of a yard of inner border fabric, 5/8 of a yard of outer border fabric, 1 and 1/4 yards of backing fabric, 3/8 of a yard of binding fabric, and batting. The above measurements will yield a 40"x40" quilt. Those who want to make larger quilts are welcome to do so using fabric measurements provided in the confirmation email. All supplies are available at Sew Memphis at a 10% class discount.
Bring your own machine or sign up early to rent one of four shop machines.
