Class - Strip Quilt As You Go - by Michelle Wyman
Strip Quilt As You Go - by Michelle Wyman
Workshop Saturday, October 19th (10am-4pm)
We will be using Gail Abeloe’s easy, beginner friendly technique to piece together strips of fabric onto foundation squares of batting for a quick and fun quilt. Once the blocks are sewn together, a backing piece is added and quilted to the top. I will show you how to bind your quilt (demoing both machine and hand sewn method techniques) and voila! You can choose to make a lap sized quilt, wall hanging or table runner. A great way to use up scraps or favorite pieces of fabric that will result in a “fun and done” project.
Materials list for String Quilt-As-You-Go quilt from Gail Ableoe’s pattern
To make a 42” by 51” throw sized quilt:
30 squares of batting cut to the measurement of 8 ½” by 8 ½”
(Can be cut from a packaged batting size 45” by 60”)
4 yards total of various fabrics for strips. The strips should be cut in various widths: 1”, 1 ¼”, 1 ½”, 2”, 2 ½”, etc. Lengths of the strips can start from 16” long to cover the diagonal center of the foundation batting square and cut in smaller lengths as you cover the square.
½ yard for the binding. Cut six 2 ½ strips by 44” or the length of fabric.
1 ¾ yards for the backing.
