Forty Fabulous Years with Eleanor Burns Part 9



The Christmas Star and The Memory Wreath have a somewhat similar look yet they are constructed quite differently.  With these two beauties, we're reviewing a few of the unit piecing techniques that we've learned along the way.  Of course, we're also advancing our skills by adding a couple more complicated elements too!

Perseverance will reward you with some confident skills and some FABULOUS blocks! No class fee! You've paid your dues!

Please bring to class:

  • Your Forty Fabulous Years textbook
  • Your selected fabrics for your blocks, already cut for your preferences as referred to in the text.  Remember to use the coloring sheets and fabric cutting labels given to you in class if you wish.
  • Your sewing machine - remember your power cord, foot petal, and 1/4" foot
  • Your small cutting mat and rotary cutter (large ones will be available in the classroom for your use)
  • Your basic machine sewing tools and supplies including thread, bobbins, seam ripper (you know, just in case someone else needs to borrow one), thread snips, etc.
  • Your 6" x 12", 4" x 14" or similar sized acrylic ruler that use can easily maneuver to mark and cut your smaller fabric pieces
  • Your  6" square up ruler 
  • Your 2" x 4" finished flying geese ruler (if you're doing 6" finished blocks, substitute a 1" x 2' finished flying geese ruler)
  • Your 3" x 6" flying geese ruler
  • Your 4 1/2" triangle square up ruler
  • Your 6 1/2" fussy cut ruler
  • Your 3 1/2" fussy cut ruler
  • Your lunch

Please note:
Laurie will have a sample of each of the rulers mentioned available for your classroom use - realize this may require sharing with others.  Also available in the classroom for your use are ironing boards, irons, large cutting mats and rotary cutters.
