Supplies Students to Have:
Note: In this workshop we will be making a 14” x 36” table runner. If you want to make something larger then you’ll need to adjust the amount of fabric you have on hand.
Fabric: You will need to choose three colors to work with. For my quilt I used light gray, dark gray (and white) but you can work with whatever colors (solids, prints, batiks etc) you prefer.
- Main Color 1 -2 fat quarters or a piece 18” x 36”
- Main Color 2 -2 fat quarters or a piece 18” x 36”
- White fabric – 2 fat quarters or a piece 18” x 36”
- Black fabric – 2 fat quarters or a piece 18” x 36”
- Backing fabric: 1 piece measuring approximately 16” x 38″
- Sewing machine with a standard foot
- Mistyfuse fusible web -note that if you want to use a different fusible that’s okay BUT we will be layering multiple fused fabrics together and if you use something other than Mistyfuse you may find that your finished result is stiff and very difficult to sew through.
- 1/2 yard Wool felt (NOT acrylic felt) OR quilt batting. Note that I use wool felt for my middle layer in my quilts. If you choose to use quilt batting then your results may differ. You can buy National NonWovens brand of wool felt (usually an 80/20 rayon/wool blend) at most Joannes fabric stores. If you are making a project that you are going to want to wash and dry then you should use quilt batting.
- Reynolds Brand parchment paper (NOT freezer paper) (found at most grocery stores or Target or a teflon pressing sheet. Not necessary if you are using a fusible other than Mistyfuse.
- Sewing machine threads to coordinate with your fabric choices.
- Rotary cutter with sharp blade, cutting mat, plastic ruler
- Iron and pressing surface
Optional: Brown or white craft paper – you will need a piece measuring 14” x 12” to draw your own quilt pattern or you can skip this step and use the pattern shapes that I will provide.
