Textile Architecture
Full-Day Workshop
10am-4pm EST, Wednesday, February 24

Create your own version of my wonky house quilt! Work with my pattern or customize it: make a night scene, turn the garage into a dog house or add a clothesline strung from the tree to the house with socks hung to dry. The possibilities are endless! You’ll learn how to get those black outlines around odd shapes, my quilt as you go method and my 4 strip fused binding technique. 
All Levels

OPTIONAL Class Kit is available, see workshop #MA006Kit to purchase. 
Please note: Class kits cannot be shipped to international addresses.

Students to Provide
Blue background fabric - one piece 21” x 21”

Green fabric - one fat quarter for the grass and tree top
Black fabric - 1/2 yard for outlining and the binding (note that you can substitute a small scale black and white print or another color instead of solid black for a different look)
An assortment of fat quarters or scraps (measuring at least 10” to 12” square”) to use for the sun, house, garage, tree trunk, mailbox, chimney, walkways, doors, windows and any other elements that you think you want to add to your version of the wonky house quilt.
Baking parchment paper - NOT freezer paper: I recommend the Reynolds brand baking parchment.
Assortment of threads to match your fabrics including black thread
Rotary cutter, mat, and scissors
Iron and pressing surface
Sewing machine
If the student doesn’t want to purchase the optional materials and supply kit then they will also need:
Mistyfuse fusible web
Wool felt (NOT acrylic) or quilt batting of their choice
Muslin or scrap fabric to be used as a backing
Transdoodle transfer paper or some other white or yellow chalk transfer paper (note if you can’t find any I will provide an alternative technique during the class)
Optional: tracing paper (not required but I find it’s nice to have)
They will also need to print the pattern pieces themselves. I will supply this via a pdf file.
