Modern Dutchman

Available by request

Class Description

To request this class, send an email to Come make this fun, modern quilt, using a traditional Flying Dutchman quilt block. The Fabric Place Basement has a number of quilt kits containing fabric for the quilt (for just $15). I have developed a pattern similar to the one originally intended for this kit. And if you want to use different colors, feel free! See below for the fabric requirements. This is a 5-hour class and comes with a complementary open workshop session, to help you complete the quilt. You can take the open workshop the day following the class, or any other time is it offered. Be sure to register for the open workshop separately (use the payment plan you purchase below). This class teaches : • Common characteristics of modern quilts • Multiple ways of creating flying geese • Piecing quilt blocks on point, using setting triangles • Adding multiple borders to a quilt Fabric Requirements (if not using the Shasta quilt kit): • Shasta Quilt Kit at Fabric Place Basement (just $15) - or - • 2 3/4 yards of background fabric • 3/4 yard of light fabric • 3/4 yard of medium fabric • 3/4 yard of dark fabric (includes binding) Recommended tools: • 1/4" foot, specific to your machine • 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" square ruler • Pencil We will provide cutting mats and a 6 x 12 inch ruler for each student's work area. We ask that you please provide your own rotary cutters, pins, thread, bobbins, and extra needles. Two irons and ironing boards will be available for shared-use in the classroom. If you would prefer to bring your own iron, I do have several small table-top ironing boards available for use. Don't forget your sewing machine! If you don't have a sewing machine, please let me know ahead of time. I do have a limited number available as needed. *Do you already know how to piece/quilt and just wish to do the project with some assistance, as needed?
