Virginia Bound!
~Class Supply List~

Please keep in mind that this is a "scrap quilt" workshop and you are meant to use your stash!  Since our scraps are all different shapes, lengths and sizes, fabric amounts are guestimates, approximate yardage is given.

Book required:
Scraps & Shirttails Book. Pattern found on page 19. Please abide by copyright rules and do not xerox the pages for this class. I will be bringing books with me, or you can pre-order the book from the website here.

Book: $25.00

General Supplies needed:

Fabric supplies:
The quilt above took approximately 3 yards of light scraps/strings/strips and 3 yards of dark scraps/strings/strips. You can do this quilt in a number of ways including:

I made this top completely from the strings and strips I got from cutting apart 100% cotton men's shirts that I picked up at thrift stores.  I used the collars, cuffs, pockets and plackets and all the odd leftover pieces of cutting down the shirts in this quilt...the WHOLE top of the quilt, including the border came from recycled shirts!

One orange shirt (XXL) was enough to do all the orange squares in the pieced border with a variety of greens, neutrals and blues filling in the other squares. One red shirt gave me the pieces for the star points in the 4 corners of the quilt.

You don't need to plan the borders for your quilt until you have your blocks together. I will include border instructions with the quilt pattern so you can complete the top on your own. The workshop will focus on string piecing the blocks!

If you have any questions about the supply list or instructions, please don't hesitate to call me!
I really look forward to this workshop with you!
