Autumn Winds  With Mary Lou Weidman

Please bring colorful Autumn fabrics- you will not need large amounts of each but a nice palette that looks like Fall- bring oranges,cheddars, berry colors (reds and purples) rusts, eggplant, blue, browns, black and greens.  I use black and white polka dots and black and white stripes and other black and whites as long as it is mostly black (too much white takes away from the over all fun of the quilt and you want it to flow like the Autumn Winds do :0)
 
HINT- I will be posting fabrics I use on my blog for a little lesson and you can get some ideas-it will show the second week of June.
 
Now you will need a background color and you will need 2 ½ yards (YES). This is your basic to have your other colors looks wonderful against. Make sure it is different than your palette and NOT the same value-VALUE is everything in these! So I would suggest a dark, dark navy, black, dark, dark green, dark, dark brown (NO mediums) OR you could go with pretty creams, sky blues, clear green (soft color), cheddar gold. This is going to make your quilt something special and all your hard work will show up and flow.
 
Bring a sewing machine in good working order -don’t forget the foot pedal etc. Put in a new needle too.
Now bring your sewing kit: -sharp scissors, rotary cutter, 9 ½ inch ruler, one long ruler (your choice), pins, mat boards, rotary cutter (plus NEW blade), and anything else YOU need to sew with. My kit is FULL of other things and yours probably is too
Freezer Paper  -you do not have to bring a whole roll (please do not plan to borrow from your neighbor- I may have a pattern you want to copy.
Pencil and notebook for taking notes
 
A free and happy spirit to come and have fun and NO stress with this fun technique. It is sure to send you off on new avenues or creativity and originality
 

 

Piecing Blocks the FUN way – With Mary Lou Weidman

Please bring-
sewing machine in good working order and NEW needles
Mat board,
rotary cutter,
NEW blade,
9 ½ inch ruler as well as a long ruler plus a 3 ½ inch ruler are really HELPFUL. Worth the money.

Background fabric – 2 yards of dark colored fabric (not medium) like black, dark blue, dark green, dark brown or a light color such a cream (rich), light clear green or light clear turquoise or  clear sky blue

Now bring a nice palette of pretty fabrics you like. Make sure their value is good with your chosen background. Fat quarters are fine and I like small amounts of LOTS of fabrics-dots, stripes plaids, Kaffe, novelty etc, tone on tones with interest, and your favorites. Remember this is your palette. I like to bring three main colors and lots of them such as reds (10 or more), greens (ten or more) and cheddars (ten or more)-this is an example only. You choose your own colors. You do not need large pieces, just have a nice run of like colors that you bring together and you can find a few transition fabrics that have both colors as in reds and greens or cheddars and reds (this is an example from the one I gave before this. I do not use fabrics with white unless I add some black and white dots or stripes for some oomph and fun and originality. We will be playing and in this class you will never look at fabric the same way, I promise.

Bring a pencil and some note paper for notes.

And your own sewing kit in case you want to use something you are used to sewing with.

This is a HAPPY class and we love happy people and happy quilts. With this method I can easily make an adorable, original baby quilt in one day. I will give you some neat patterns to go along with these ideas. So, come and join us and get “Happy!”
