Workshop Preparation

Preparation – Wash, starch and press all fabric. Make 8 practice quilt sandwiches to practice stitching templates. Baste with basting spray or use fusible batting. Pin basting will be problematic for ruler quilting.

  1. Cotton fabric – Cut Eight – 8.5-inch x 8.5-inch pieces of solid, medium to dark fabric
  2. Batting of choice – Cut Eight– 10.5-inch x 10.5 inches pieces of low/medium loft batting
  3. Muslin for backing – Cut Eight – 10.5-inch x 10.5-inches pieces
  4. Mark –With a thin permanent marker, (an ink pen will work) mark each 8.5 x 8.5 fabric with a 6-inch square that has a ¼ inch outer border. NOTE: for best results mark fabric before making the quilt sandwich.  ****The inner square MUST be 6-inches.
