Workshops

April 11, 2022             

  • Rooster Collage class with Ruth Pollow – $30 – No machine needed. Contact Betsy Baerenklau to register by March 14th. Class will be taught after the April 11th meeting (and lunch).

Here’s the supply list:

Rooster Collage Class SUPPLY LIST

  1. You will receive a 12”H x 14” W pattern of a rooster to use in this class.
  2. Bring a piece of muslin, cut the size of your finished quilt. If you simply want to make the rooster with little background, a 15” x 18” piece of muslin will be plenty. If you want to add more to a background scene behind the rooster, plan on making your muslin piece as large as you will need for your finished quilt.
  3. Fabrics to bring: Lots of small pieces of fabric and fat quarters in colors that you would like to use to create your collage rooster. Then bring some more fabrics that are outside your normal choice spectrum or with crazy patterns. The rooster can be wild colors or you can try to use colors that would be natural for various breeds of roosters. Check out photos of roosters by doing a Google search on “rooster photos”.
  4. OPTIONAL: Bring fabric(s) that you would like to use for the background. Backgrounds can be made to look like a nature setting or can be squares or strips in a color different enough from those you are using for the rooster so that the bird will pop out from the background. Backgrounds will be added after the rooster is built.

Steam-a-Seam 2 Lite and acetate for making the pattern will be supplied to you at the class.

Scissors for both the Steam-a-Seam and for cutting fabric. An additional small, sharp scissors for cutting out the pieces after fusing is also handy.

Other Supplies:

  • Permanent Marking Pen—Black Extra Fine (Sharpie or Pigma Micron Pens work well)
  • Foam-cor board as large as your project. This is not required but will make assembling your project easier.
  • Blue Tape
  • Small pins
  • Small bag for collecting scrap wastes, thread, etc.
  • Pencil or light color marking pen (extra fine)
  • OPTIONAL: Tweezers for picking up fabric corners and for placing fabrics on muslin.
  • Iron and Ironing Surface Mat

We will not be doing any sewing so no need to lug that Sewing Machine to class!
