Fused appliqué can be very sophisticated and graphic. In this class, students will pick from a variety of patterns to complete a small quilt top, 18 x 24” or get started on a larger quilt. There are at least 13 patterns to choose from: Puzzles, Gears, Stylized Flowers, Still Lifes, Guitars. It’s like a coloring book for adults, but with fabric, and you don’t have to stay in the lines! The class is both a project and a process class, as you learn Robbi’s unique method of working with fusibles to create sophisticated art quilts. Beginner/Intermediate level.

Materials List: 2 yards regular weight Wonder-Under® paper backed fusible webbing. Pick at least four colors to create a palette. Fat quarters or large scraps of cotton hand dyes, textured solids, batiks or non directional prints. Bring two values of each color in your chosen palette. You can shop in the show if you need more. Mechanical pencil or Sharpie Marker ultra fine point (not the Sharpie pen), paper cutting scissors, and 4”or 5” scissors to cut detailed shapes out of fabric bonded to webbing. Optional: 1. Small sheet of foam core board to use as a work surface, about 18” x 24” will allow you to pin your pattern down while you trace. 2. SMALL iron (100 watts or less). 3. Small light box. 4. Extension cord if you bring #2 or #3. 5. Glass head quilt pins. Go to www. robbieklow.com for color ideas. Each student will choose one free pattern and may purchase more.
