Patriotic (or Scrappy) Quad Block

Learn to use unrelated 6-inch blocks to make a quad-block. A pattern for the wall hanging is available in the class. The sample shows a Patriotic Quad-Block, but it can also be done “scrappy” with high contrast fabric for the background areas.

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Required: Familiarity with general sewing, quilt piecing techniques, use of rotary cutter and personal sewing machine prior to class start
Materials Included: Fabric sold separately, Kit fee $5
Requirements: Fabric: A mixture of red, white/cream, and blues, as many different fabrics as possible OR IF DOING SCRAPPY : (scraps from many fabrics including lights, mediums and darks. Choose one color family to carry through blocks as consistent motif. ) 1/2 yard fabric for border (I used black inner border and red outer. Fat quarter of black and at least a 7 inch square of white. Sewing machine and neutral thread (please make sure your machine is working properly, is clean and have extra needles, light bulbs, etc on hand so you won't lose class time.) A quarter inch foot is helpful but you also need a regular flat foot. Scissors, rotary cutter (a 28mm is a really good size to bring); make SURE you have a new blade either in the cutter or on hand; small rotary mat (one that can sit by your machine about- 8 inch by 12 inch or so). Half square triangle cutting ruler IF you already own one. Don't go out and buy one. Flying Goose trimming template if you already have one, I will bring mine. Marking pencil for light and dark fabrics. A 1 inch by 12 inch ruler for marking. Small iron and small ironing surface that can go beside your machine. At least 3 zip-lock bags for your HST; I use quart bags. Straight pins (you only need a few). A glue stick ( I use UHU) A design wall or a piece of flannel or cotton batting to use as a design wall and low tack or painter's tape to hang it with. A small table or TV tray to have for an ironing station beside you. An extension cord or power strip heavy enough to run your machine and iron. A pencil or fabric marker to mark fabric on both light and dark values.
Instructor: Angie Madden
Instructor Bio: Angie started sewing at a young age, making garments all the way up to a lined suitcoat and pants for her husband. Yuk! She fell in love with the look and artistry of quilts early in her journey but didn't start quilting until 1978 or so. She started with what was available then, polyester and cotton, hand cutting around cardboard templates and hand sewing and quilting. Things progressed quickly and new techniques and tools were incorporated into the quilting process. Art in many forms were explored and some included in quilting. She enjoys both traditional and art quilting but the absolute favorite project is a scrap quilt with applique on the border. She has taught quilting and related classes for the past twenty years. She is always eager to both teach and learn from classes.
$40 class fee plus $5 kit fee paid directly to the instructor.
