Gyleen X Fitzgerald - Maryland
Over and Under Rainbows, Full Day Workshop

Saturday, October 14, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Modern with a twist! “KNOT” as hard as you think! It’s visually dynamic with fast easy piecing. Don’t let cutting “Tie” you up. All you need is one 2.5” strip set and 3.5 yards of background fabric. Gyleen’s thoughts: Workshop project is a 56” x 70” lap quilt, however doing less makes a wonderful table or bed runner. Project looks modern with solid or semi-solid or batik fabric. Select a background fabric that doesn’t compete with your strips. If you have a collection of self-made 2½ strips you can go for scrappy. I used my light 2½ strips for a scrappy background. Don’t over think it. Come to have fun. Beginner level.

Materials List: Two, 50-60 wt., thread colors, one for the top and another in the bobbin and that is visible on the wrong side of fabric. Seam ripper, thread snips, rotary cutter, ruler and mat, extension cord, straight pins, finger pressing tool, and batting to use as a design wall (optional). Fabric: (42) 2½” x 40” strips, assorted fabrics (solids, semi-solids, batiks), 2 strips per each fabric. 3½ yards background fabric. Cut (12) 2½” x 40” strips from background fabric. (Note: 4 yards of background fabric is needed if you want a border.) Special Tool (available in class): Angle Trim Tool, $15 and Instructions (available in class): Pattern, $10.
