Elephant Walk Supply List

Infrognito
Child or Lap Quilt: 33” x 42” or 42 ”x 50”

Make frogs come in crazy colors, so go wild with your stash! In this workshop we’ll create this modern frog block using the “Middle to Middle Piecing” method which makes sewing the frogs deceptively simple! Cutting with templates and sewing triangles is surprisingly fast and easy:

– No matching points

– No tiny pieces

– No tricky triangles

– No paper piecing

A wonderful quilt for a boy or girl, but certainly the new baby coming soon…. (Choose from two options to create the disguised frog which always brings a smile.). The pattern is for two sizes and uses rich, warm yellows or serene grays for the backgrounds. The frogs are stash & layer cake friendly and the wide, asymmetrical border is an opportunity to showcase your quilting. Creating the fusible eyes and flower blocks will also be demonstrated in class. Pattern is included in workshop fee.

Option:
Elephant Walk
48” x 60” Lap Quilt
Colorful pieced elephants walk across this charming quilt. The elephant blocks are created using our Middle-To Middle Piecing Method (not paper piecing) for easier cutting of multiples and piecing of angled shapes.
 
The pattern is Layer Cake-friendly or choose coordinating bight prints and textures for the bodies and soft neutrals or prints for the backgrounds.Pattern is included in workshop fee.

Which Witches Boot

We will be using this delightful Crab-apple Hill pattern designed for crayon tinting but making it much more vibrant by “coloring” the fabric with colored pencils. Learn how to transfer designs, stabilize the fabric and used colored pencils and permanently seal them into the fabric to make this fun Halloween wall quilt. We will work on the center “colored” section only in class. The pattern includes instructions for the pieced borders to be done at home.
