Supply list

Will need at least 2 ironing stations



Basic sewing supplies:

Pattern making supplies:


Use batiks or small prints or hand dyes


1.  4 coordinating fabrics with fusible already fused on back, plus fused scraps left over from other projects. Try for a dark, a very light, and two medium values of fabric.  Prints are ok but make sure you have some solids too.  You will need very small amounts, less than a fat quarter, so check your scraps.  Just make sure you come to class with all your fabrics already fused on the back.
2.  Back fabric and batting cut to about 10 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.
3.  Small rectangle of fusible about 8″ x 11″, Wonder Under or Misty Fuse.
3.  Teflon fusing sheet.
4.  Pins, rotary cutter, ruler, cutting mat, fabric scissors, various threads to co-ordinate with fabrics.
5.  Sewing machine that you are familiar with for free motion quilting, with appropriate needles for your threads, and your free motion foot, as well as any other feet you like to use.
6.  9 X 12 cheap canvas (Jerry’s Artarama or Michael’s) to mount your finished piece.


1.  Bring pictures of natural world, i.e. sunsets, flowers, landscapes, rocks, plants, etc.
2.  Medium gray fabric for foundation to fuse on about 1/2 yard.
3.  In order to make a value gradation you will need:  black, white, range of grays solids or  very small prints ranging from dark to light, have or buy 1/8 yd. and fuse Wonder Under or any fusible on back.
4. In order to make the color value gradation you will need:  1 color, (solids or small prints, 1/8 yd. or  any scraps you have at home) and try to bring 7 different values of that color, i.e. very pale blue, pale blue, light blue, medium blue, medium dark blue, dark blue, almost black blue. We just need a small piece of each color, but bring whatever you have to trade.  It will save class time if all your fabrics and scraps have fusible already applied to  the back.
5. For final project:  making a small color study, bring small scraps (1/8 yd or less) of many different colors in solids, batiks or very small prints.
6. cell phone with a camera, pins, scissors, mat, ruler, rotary cutter, teflon sheet extra fusible, Wonder Under or Misty Fuse
