Blooming Sheers

Supplies Students to Bring:

  • Quilt sandwich for 15” x 19” base of piece: High quality white 100% cotton for top, can use a print for the backing if you want to hide your stitching. Quality batting – cotton or blend.
  • Optional to have another quilt sandwich to play on before you commit to your “real” piece.
  • Fabric: small (4” square or so) pieces of sheer fabric (polyester or silk); an assortment of pastels and “flower colors” + assortment of greens. 7 – 10 of each.
  • Thread snips.
  • Wash away marker and 24” ruler.
  • Paper to practice designs on. Packing paper is my fav – plenty of room to play.
  • Free motion quilting notions you typically use. I recommend a Teflon slider, gloves or free motion quilting hoop, straight stitch plate.
  • Optional: Small beads for embellishment.
