Jan. 11 12:30-3:30  Shoo-Dash

Click HERE for supply list.

Shoo-Dash Quilt Requirements for Class
We will be making the Lap Size, 60” x 60” (you can make the baby one if you want!).
At least 40 layer cake squares (10” x 10”) in a variety of colors and prints. Make sure there are some fabrics that read as solid. This pattern does not work well if the fabric is mostly busy or large prints.
Cutting tools for squaring up HSTs ( I use my 6 ½” square ruler).
Sewing machine and supplies, including a pencil
It is always nice to do the cutting at home. I would just say make sure you take (cut) a variety of fabrics for shoo dash center blocks. I find it is hard to concentrate in class and cutting can be tricky. We don’t want any cutting mistakes!
