Your blocks "IN A BOX"

Your Blocks "IN A BOX" with ALLA BLANCA

Saturday, September 22, 10:30-4:30     $57

 

DESCRIPTION

Make your sampler blocks, focus/novelty fabric, or fabric panel squares stand out with this graphic setting technique.  Choose 2 fabrics or more to make alternate blocks: this serves to easily increase your quilt size, and gives you the look of an "on point" setting.  Finish with the modern "no border" look, or make borders as desired.

Finished size of your quilt will vary.  Shop sample is 60" x 74" and was made with 12 pieced sampler blocks, each 12" square. 

SUPPLIES

Sewing Machine in good working order with new needle

Cutting mat, rotary cutter, preferred long ruler

(optional) Square ruler to match your block size (e.g. 12 1/2" square ruler recommended for BOM blocks)

Design wall (cotton flannel or flannel-backed oil cloth or thin polyester batting)

Piecing thread to blend with fabrics, or neutral gray/taupe (100% cotton size No. 50 or No. 60 preferred)

Notions you customarily use (pins, wonder clips, seam ripper, thread snips, etc.)

 

FABRICS

Sampler pieced blocks (or same-size squares cut from any fabric, including a panel) - 4 or more

2 or more complimentary or contrasting fabrics to make the "boxes" - amounts needed will vary (shop sample quilt required 1 1/2 yards each of 2 solid fabrics, for example)
