THIS CLASS WILL BE IN OUR UPSTAIRS CLASSROOM
This Alison Glass pattern uses very traditional quilt blocks to make a very striking modern design. The class will cover several methods to make both flying geese and half square triangles so that you can figure out which methods work best for you. You will be thrilled at your results! This class is appropriate for confident beginners or intermediate students who are familiar with rotary cutting and ¼” seams. A kit matching the class sample is available – it’s Giucy Giuce’s great fabrics for additional cost.
Flight Path pattern by Alison Glass – available from Lyons Quilting
Your favorite rotary cutting ruler. I recommend either a 12 ½” square Creative Grids ruler or a 6 ½” x 12 ½” Creative Grids ruler. Both are available from Lyons Quilting.
Lyons Quilting has kitted this quilt in the fabulous Giucy Giuce fabrics in the class sample.
If you don’t want the kitted fabric, please bring fabric per the pattern. Especially the background – the pattern uses 4 different ones. You can either buy the number of fat quarters or use lots of scraps for a different look. If you need help, Mary will give you assistance during class or you can call her to make an appointment for help prior to class.
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 - Please put a new blade in your rotary cutter.
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.
