Stitched Mosaic

Supplies Students Need To Have:

  • Sewing machine that can blanket stitch or zig-zag stitch
  • Assorted 2.5″ squares in 2 color families. In my flower sample I used blues and whites. You will need approximately 40 of each color. Also will need 4 squares of yellow (or another color) for the center of the flower.
  • Matching thread for machine applique. I like using Superior’s Mono-poly clear thread.
  • Neutral cotton thread for piecing squares together
  • Foam cord or batting to pin project to
  • Iron/ironing pad
  • Best press or liquid starch
  • Small craft paint brush
  • Small shallow bowl
  • Paper scissors
  • Fabric scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Ruler at least 18” in length
  • Straight pins
  • Piece of scrap batting approximately 4”x6”

Not necessary, but optional:

  • Light box
  • Timna’s book “Stitched Photo Mosaic Quilting”
