Online Interactive Workshop
We're absolutely delighted to welcome back Sarah Payne into the CraftyMonkies spotlight for a much-requested repeat of her Striptease workshop, which last ran with CraftyMonkies way back in 2020! If any of you missed this class last time, or indeed are new to CraftyMonkies, please don't hesitate to book. Sarah is such a great teacher when it comes to beginners and for people who would like to learn some traditional quilting techniques. Her strong army of followers love her genuine, fun, friendly nature and her willingness to make sure you learn lots!
Introduction by Sarah:-
An overflowing stash pile is a common conundrum for quilters. We love the fabric when we buy it, we have great fun making stuff with it, and then we are loath to throw away those last little bits! So we keep them, and keep them, and keep them. We add to the pile until we can barely see over the top of it! So here is a quilt that will get you using up all those little pieces. Who cares if they match – even better if they don’t!
This Quilt As You Go (QAYG) project is perfect for bashing that stash!
What you will learn on this Online Interactive Workshop:-
This is a really fun way to work your way through all of those piles of scraps you have been collecting in a corner of your sewing room. This class will show you how to create a fun block, and then quilt as you go to put it all together. You won’t get the quilt done in a class, but you can at least make a start!
You will receive a full pattern after the class so don’t worry. You will also be shown how to put the QASG blocks together.
Skill Level for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
This workshop is suitable for ALL skill levels: Beginner and above!...
Material requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
This sample quilt is approx. 30 x 40 inches and the requirements are based on that size. But you don’t need all of it to get started and can add to it as you go!
A mixture of fabrics for the pattern. Just grab some scraps or some fat ¼ s
50cms of a neutral colour for the contrasting strips
15cms of a neutral fabric for the sashing on the quilt front ( I used the same fabric as the contrasting strips)
1 ¼ m of backing fabric
1 ¼ m of calico (or similar) to be used as the foundation – this wont be seen as and long as it is a light colour, you can use anything, including old sheets.
12 pieces of wadding measuring 10.5” squares of wadding (60cm of wadding cut from the bolt)
Prep before the class:-
Cut out a 10 ½ inch square from the wadding, the backing fabric and the foundation fabric. You can also cut some strips from your scraps if you don’t have any. We will use a mixture of 1 inch, 1 ½ inch, 2 inch and 2 ½ inch strips. You wont need many to get started, and we will cut more during the class!
Equipment requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-
Sewing-Machine with a Walking Foot
