Class Description: Shimmering Triangles: Come and get your shimmer on! The trick to the shimmer is in using correct value & color separation between the bold prints and correct placement of the half-square triangle blocks. You will learn to make a quick set of triangles and then put together a quilt that gives the effect of water rippling over pebbles in a creek. The effect is stunning and all-consuming as you watch the magic unfold. The effect is stunning and all-consuming as you watch the magic unfold. This was created by Jenny Bowker from Australia. You will get Jenny's pattern with two different methods to create this pattern.

 

Class Supply List:

       1/4 to 1/3 yard of 5 different feature fabrics.

       (Fat quarters can work unless you are fussy cutting specific motifs).  This great for those large bold prints such as florals or Kaffee Fassett's. Also Batiks and solid fabrics can be stunning. Choose one main feature fabric and then choose 4 other fabrics that will contrast with it. They can all be big prints but they must have good color and value separation.           You will cut one 8 ½ inch square of each fabric and also four 6 ½ inch squares of each fabric. If you are concerned about your fabric choices please wait until class to cut them. Stripes or chevrons will not work.

  • 1/4 or 1/3 yard of 8 other fabrics that will contrast with the five main feature fabrics Wait until class to cut the border and corner fabrics
  • Bring extra fabrics to class to audition. For help with fabric selections check out Shimmering Triangles on Pinterest or Facebook.
  • Design wall to tape or pin to classroom wall. Flannel works well.
  • 1/4 inch foot for sewing machine.
  • Neutral thread.
  • 6 1/2 inch square ruler and long ruler
  • Mechanical pencil.
  • Cutting mat and sharp blade in rotary cutter.

 

Borders: decide on fabrics that will contrast or blend with the main focus fabrics.

Cut one 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch rectangle and two 6 ½ x 6 ½ inch squares from each border print. These can be all be from the same fabric or multiple different fabrics.

Corner posts: one 4 ½ X 4 ½ inch piece and one 6 ½ x 6 ½ inch piece of the same fabric. Each corner can be from the same fabric or each different.
