Friday, March 16 - 1:00 pm - Guild Workshop at the Buckley Fire Station, 611 S. Division St. Buckley.  Sharon will teach us the Disappearing 9-Patch Block.

Disappearing 9-Patch Workshop Supply List

Sewing machine & your regular sewing kit
Cutting mat, 6" x 12" ruler & rotary cutter
Fabrics you will need for one test block:
9 - 3.5-inch squares
4 squares for background, all the same solid or nearly – solid fabric
4 squares for the corners (all the same print or scrappy)
1 square for the center (contrasting from the background and the corners)

If you want to make more Disappearing 9 Patches than just the test block, you will need to bring more fabrics in any colors/combos you'd like.
2.5-inch cut squares make a 5.5 inch disappearing 9 Patch
3.5-inch cut squares will yield an 8.5-inch block
4.5-inch cut squares = 11.5-inch block
5-inch squares (charms) = 13-inch block.
I suggest starting with no larger than 4.5-inch squares for this workshop.
Any questions or concerns, call Sharon @ 360-889-0880.

Poppy by Ann Shaw (pattern)

This is an art quilt, sized at 35" X 29". This art quilt is comprised of five small complete quilts.  One each  of four petals, plus the background.  Making an art quilt is meant to be fun and enjoyable, there is no rush.

Supplies list:

Ironing mat
Freezer paper
Scotch tape 
Scissors for cutting paper
Sharpie with fine point
light source for tracing -optional
Cutting Board
Rotary Cutter
Ruler

If you don't know what color to make your Poppy, Google "pictures of poppies", or "poppy pictures", etc.

This class goal is to complete one full petal (out of the four) -   the top, batting and backing.  There is plenty of time to accomplish this goal.

This is an easy and fun quilt I am sure you will enjoy creating.
