Instructor: Barbara Miller
Class: This is a two session class in which you will learn the One Block Wonder technique and be able to design your own quilt. The wonderful thing about making these quilts is that no fabric preparation is required other than pressing by following the Pre-Class Instructions below. DO NOT PREWASH THE FABRIC. Prewashing removes the sizing and can distort the fabric.
CLASS ONE: You will learn how to layer and stack your repeats, cut your strips, cut your equilateral triangles and sew your hexie's. Your homework will be to sew all your hexie's before the next class.
CLASS TWO: Bring all your sewn hexis to begin the designing process. At this class, you may want to buy a fabric for a border or accent, but that will be determined at that time according to the design that’s being created. No sewing machine needed for this class.
I guess what I'm saying is: don't choose a tiny print.
2nd class: flannel sheet, flannel backed tablecloth or piece of batting to use as a design wall. You may want a pool noodle to roll it all up on to bring home.
Pre-class instructions: Yardage or panels pressed with Best Press. When pressing, PRESS (do not iron) parallel with the selvedge (the same direction) so distortion will not take place. Transport as wrinkle free as possible
