Sewing Machine Sewing Machine Foot: 1⁄4” piecing foot (No Guide) Basic Sewing Supplies: scissors, thread, seam ripper, etc. Optional Pattern Book:Quilts for Kids by TenSisters Handicraft Complete instructions will be given in class if you would prefer not to buy the book. EasyPiecing Grid:6 panels of 2" finished grid. Fabric Supplies: 1⁄2 yard of 7 different fabrics or scraps to equal. (Or, a fat quarter of 14 different fabrics.) 1⁄2 yard of solid color for chain.
Pre-cutting tips: The quilt fabric yardage is broken down to 6 colors plus a chain color (pink in my sample). For 6 colors, there is an average of 115 squares each. You can cut 40-60 two and a half inch squares of each color to get you started, and 116 chain (pink) squares. In addition to the 7 (or 14) fabrics, I suggest adding a few more colors for your blocks--using fat quarters or scraps. Or, have a little extra yardage of your 6 colors. If one color is overused, you may run out before you are finished piecing your quilt.
