Weave a Quilt with Me…no sewing machine needed!

From Elly’s website

NO SEWING MACHINES needed, only a spirit of adventure! In this playful workshop, you’ll weave with fabric strips and ribbons, to make a Skinny quilt/table runner, wall hanging or art quilt, album cover, pillow top, Christmas stocking, or project of any size. I’ll share lots of ways to combine weavings, quilt, and finish the edges of your fabulous, original piece after the class ends.!

Class Supply List:

First, choose a color palette for your creation to match the décor where it will go. Make sure you have similar and complementary colors in light, medium, and dark values. Then collect:

*Scraps and/or fat eighths or fat quarters of fabrics in your chosen colors—at least 8 different ones

*Various ribbons, lace, rickrack, and/or braided trims in colors to match and contrast; satin ribbons are lovely for shine, grosgrain gives great texture, and metallics such as gold and silver are great for zing!

*2 yards of any old fabric for a padded work surface (this could become your backing)

*1 yard of paper-backed, heavy-duty fusible web, 17” wide (I recommend heavy-duty Wonder-Under–avoid sticky types like Steam-a-Seam)

*Basic rotary cutting supplies
*Pins and pincushion
*Fabric-cutting scissors

Optional during class: Iron and ironing surface. Big Boards are terrific for this technique, but a table with padding will do
