Poppin In or Convex Illusions-Kathy Johnson Day 2

See Saturday information for this class

Wedges - Kris Jacobson

Level- Advanced Beginner to Intermediate. Using a 10 degree ruler students will cut wedges and make 60 degree wedges. Then you play with the wedges to find a layout of their choice. The photos show one choice of a layout and what one block looks like. In class we will look at some of the layout options. Any 60 degree layout will work with these blocks. You quilt blocks can be very modern looking or more traditional depending on your fabric choice.


Fabric for wedges: various colors, 1/4 yards or fat quarters or 9” x 12” strips of scraps

Fabric for triangle points: 4” Strips of a contrasting color.

I started with 20 blocks and then made more. In class you will want to make at least 6 blocks and you can make a table runner with that many. I also choose to do it scrappy and my strips were 9 x 3 for each 10 degree wedge and there are 6 wedges in each block.

Hexagon Star - Kari Huber

Class level - confident beginner/intermediate

In this class, students will be constructing a deceptively simple hexagon star with a jelly roll and background yardage. Pre-sewing the strip sets before class is recommended but not required. Those who pre-sew can expect to have a finished quilt top at the end of class.
Pre-sewing instructions:
Divide jelly roll into four distinct color groupings, for example: Blue, orange, green and yellow (my sample colors). You will need 7 strips of each color, so 7 blue, 7 orange, etc. Sewing the strata in the same order, i.e.: blue orange, green, yellow, create 7 strata. Press seams all in one direction. If you have questions about how to do this, please contact me. You can expect to get your strip sets sewn in about 3-4 hours or less.

Supply list:
• Book: New Ways with Jelly Rolls by Pam and Nicky Lintott available at Dakota Sew and So, Dickinson. Holly will be glad to ship the book to you if you aren't able to get to the shop. The shop phone is 701 225-1408.
• One jelly roll with at least 4 distinct colors and good contrast. Batiks work beautifully for this, but other, "solid" looking fabrics would also work.
• 3 yards background fabric. We will be using this in class to finish the top.
• 1/2 yard binding fabric - not needed in class.
• 60 degree triangle ruler that you probably already have. It must be large enough to make 8 1/2" triangles. I prefer the Clearview Triangle Ruler.
• Basic sewing kit - neutral thread (I prefer lime green, of course, but go with what works for you!), sewing machine, cutting mat and rotary cutter, design wall, 24" long ruler, 12" square ruler if you have it and any other basic sewing items you find necessary. Don't forget the Snickers bar for the teacher.
