Class - Color Sense with Annie - Jul 28, 2017 10:00 am
Learn to make this stunning quilt, with a strong focus on technique and the use of color.
COLOR SENSE, Day One: The Value of Color -- the most important workshop you will ever take.
The Quilter's Palette – Materials and supply list
• First, choose a focus fabric. This may or may not be your background fabric or one that you will use the most. It should be a beautiful fabric that has some good colors in it that you like as the Color Palette for your quilt and that you will be able to pick coordinating fabrics for. (For example: the fabric may have purple, orange, yellow and green that would be your palette of colors that you will use for your quilt. Or, you may choose a fabric that has just two colors: blue and green that would be your color palette)
You will need 1 yard of focus fabric.
• 3 yards of background fabric. You will use this fabric the most. A light fabric works the best as a background.
• 16 halfyard pieces of fabric for this quilt, which gives it a more designed look as opposed to a scrappy look. Yes, you do need 16 halfyard pieces. No, you may not accumulate your fabrics as class goes along. You will need all of your fabrics the first night of class.
NOTIONS AND OTHER ITEMS YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE YOUR QUILT:
• Your sewing machine and sewing kit, power cord, foot pedal
• Scissors – A pair for paper and a pair for fabric (should be two different pairs)
• Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
• Template plastic – two types: frosted white template plastic and a heat resistant template plastic such as Templar®. You will need the first type for the first class, the heat resistant for class three – but I will give you that one, so don’t buy it.
• Neutral thread for piecing – light gray or beige (I recommend Aurifil® thread for the best value)
• A 1⁄4” presser foot for accurate piecing
• Seam ripper
• Ball head pins
• Clover brand fork pins
• A 1gallon ziplock bag
• A permanent pen (Sharpie Ultrafine and Micron Pigma pen)
• Cloth tape measure (or plastic one)
• Schmetz Microtex or Universal sewing machine needles, 80/12
• Emery board
A clearview binder and about 12 page sleeves
For Class Three:
• you will need to match your thread color to your applique fabrics.
• An opentoe applique foot This is a must for machine applique. An open toe applique foot has no bars across the foot, metal or clear plastic – the foot is completely open.NOTE: This is not a darning foot. I'll show you what the foot looks like in class. If you think you have one, please bring it to the first class.
• 1 spool of invisible nylon or monofilament thread – clear, not smoky.
• Marking pencil – I use Roxanne's Quilter's Choice chalk pencils
• June Tailor® Graphit graph paper pad for drafting
• 1 can of Faultless or Niagara Regular Spray Starch
• 1 yard of lightweight fusible web (I prefer Soft Fuse we will discuss this in class before you need it)
• 1 spool of thread that matches your primary background fabric
OPTIONAL: • Addaquarter ruler
We will choose the sashing fabric for your quilt when your blocks are all completed. There is no border to this quilt. The sashing and binding fabric will be the same and we will get it all at the same time. For the quilt backing (also known as lining), you will need 4 yards of fabric.
If you have ANY questions, please contact me by email prior to class.
** I am free to meet with you prior to class at the Nimble Thimble, or to help you make sure that your fabrics are correct and in order. Please RSVP with me by email when you sign up for the class and we can arrange a time. This needs to take place before the first day of class.
