Freestyle Fabric Collage

Supplies Students Need To Have On Hand:

Choose fabrics that you would like to plant a garden with! Small amounts of florals, prints, batiks and solids will all work beautifully. The key is to choose fabric that you will enjoy creating a garden out of. I used Liberty, Tawna Lawn. It is tightly woven, so it doesn’t fray a lot. It is also very lightweight, so it acts almost like paper as you collage.

A sketchbook or loose paper to sketch on.

Pencil and fine tip pen (any brand)

2-3 fabrics for the background (fat quarter size)

A selection of scrap fabrics for your garden.

Glue stick – Any brand – Uhu, Elmers, Staples

Fabric scissors

Backing fabric and batting, approx. 22 x 20”


Small rotary cutter and cutting mat

Bias tape or ribbon (for flower stems)

To quilt your collage (after class):

Sewing machine and free motion quilting foot attachment.

Black thread for quilting, (40-50 wt.)
