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
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.)
