Country Revival pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful – available from Lyons Quilting
Quick Curve Ruler (not the mini) by Sew Kind of Wonderful – available from Lyons Quilting
Assorted fabrics to make the blocks – a selection of fat quarters works well. You will also need yardage for the background & sashing (the navy blue in the class sample picture). How much you need will depend on the size of the project you are making. The pattern gives the correct amount for a 4 block layout.
Sewing machine with all the usual supplies including a quarter inch foot. I recommend a size 80 needle. For thread, I highly recommend Aurifil – any neutral color.
Rotary cutter & quilter’s ruler – Bring your favorite straight ruler for cutting strips. Please put a new blade in your rotary cutter. I also recommend bringing a square ruler that has a 45° line on it.
Marking pencils – bring one that will mark on dark fabrics & one that will mark on light fabric. I recommend Sew Line ceramic chalk pencils.
All your favorite sewing notions such as pins, scissors, tweezers, seam ripper, etc. I also recommend that you bring a bottle of Mary Ellen’s Best Press.
Pre-class preparation: None. If you would like help before class picking out fabrics, contact Mary to make an appointment. We will also have plenty of time in class to work on fabric and color choices.
We will be taking a lunch break – feel free to bring your lunch (we have a frig & microwave in the classroom) or we will also be ordering in from a local restaurant.
