Instructor: Michelle Hiatt
Elna sewing machines are being furnished, compliments of our sponsor, for Michelle’s classes. You do not need to bring a sewing machine. Educators will be in the classroom at 8:30am to help you familiarize yourself with the sewing machines, so the class can start on time.
Michelle designed this quilt combining two of her favorite quilt blocks, the Rambler and V Star (also known as the Peaky and Spike/50-40 or Fight Block). This quilt literately sparkles! This pattern is made using Studio 180 Design’s Tucker Trimmer™ I, V Block™ and the Corner Pop™ tools. If you collect or love Fat Quarters, this is the quilt to make, it makes fabulous usage of Fat Quarters and it is perfect for any color background. The class will include step-by-step use for three tools, as well as tips on piecing and proper pressing techniques to make this quilt perfect! Additionally, we will talk through the color selection and placement, plus ways to improve your general machine piecing. For the most sparkle, go with a high contrast between your background fabric and Fat Quarters. Michelle used a green accent fabric throughout her chain, you could elect any color but try to use your accent color minimally within the Fat Quarters, so that it pops!
