Supply list for QUILTS - PIECING ABSTRACTION
Since we are not following a pattern, you are making fabric choices as you sew.
Bring a good stash of SOLIDS include: many colors, a range of lights - darks, dull - bright; different shades of one color family; prints or batiks as accents. Bring fabric you like so you feel enthused from the get go.
one print or color that challenges you, for example, you are not sure how to use it, or if you like it.
It is helpful to pre-cut yardage (especially is you are packing for flight) and consider packing strips from 3-6 inches to give you more variety, and fat quarters as larger pieces. Scraps and orphans can be a fun starting point.
HOW MUCH?? Estimate how much you may need to make a wall quilt approx. 30-40”.
Another way to estimate is to consider what you want for 5 days of sewing. Finally,
consider 10 to 12 colors OR your favorite palette AND just know that I’m good with
what you want to do. (I will bring a stash to share with you)
Pack what is convenient and I will have a few rulers to share, and you are free to work entirely without a ruler.
CUTTERS/SCISSORS & MAT -
Bring your favorites. The MISA studio supplies a large mat to share.
Your sewing machine in good working order; or check with MISA about a rental
Basic sewing supplies—pins, extra machine needles; thread for piecing in neutral or
coordinating color for your palette.
DESIGN WALL -
This is handy for original work and MISA supplies foam core space for each student. Some students like a piece of bating or flannel to attach to the foam core, and some don’t.
I imagine that we will accomplish quilt tops and batting and backing are not necessary for class.
