Trash to Treasure with Gyleen Fitzgerald
Okay isn’t it time to clear the clutter in your life? What about using up all those bits and pieces stuff in nooks, crannies and boxes? Better?
Let’s make an old fashion favorite
pineapple quilt with a new and contemporary twist; sewn with perfection and totally random; and
without paper piecing! This workshop turns trash to a treasured one of a kind pineapple quilt.
Sew fast and free. You will learn how to use the Pineapple Tool to "trim to accuracy". Experiment with design layouts to discover the diversity of one block. It has endless possibilities.
Basic quilt-making skills required: rotary cutting, piecing a 1/4" seam.
Note: Sewing machines provided for class use.
Materials fee: $30 for Pineapple Tool and Trash to Treasure Pineapple Book
(2) thread colors, one for the top and another in the bobbin that is visible
on the wrong side of fabric; huge bag or basket that stays open for your strips; finger pressing tool; and batting to use as a design wall (optional).
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Cut down all the scraps that you gathered to 1 ½" strips. Grain or length doesn’t
matter just make sure you have a large variety (6" is the longest used). You're going to need lots of strips. Do not precut to length.
Cut (4) or so 1 ½" strips of your solid or semi-solid. Bring the rest to class. Materials fee: $30 for Pineapple Tool and Trash to Treasure Pineapple Book
