    Handquilting and Binding by Bernice

    Town Square Quilt by Charyti

    Geo-bag by Andrea

    Wedge Tree Skirt by Jean

    Handquilting and Binding by Bernice
    Bernice will be showing us how to handquilt and handbind during this mini class. There are several options for this class. You can bring a small tablerunner, placemat or just muslin and batting sandwich (layer of batting between two layers of muslin) to hand quilt. If you just want to handbind, please bring a small project and the binding. Other items needed are small needle, thread and optional wooden hoop for handquilting.

    Town Square Quilt by Charyti
    Here are the supplies that you will need to make this quilt

    1 roll of 2.5" strips (jelly roll)

    1.75 yards of background fabric (use whatever color works best with your strips - Jenny used black and the demonstration quilt uses white. One of the big things is you want a big contrast with your other fabric)

    1.25 yards outer border

    0.75 yards binding

    5.25 yards backing

    Here is what the finished quilt will look like https://d62zadma0c9t.cloudfront.net/...n-square-0.pdf or https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...attern-by-msqc

    The finished quilt size is approximately 68" x 86"

    This quilt goes together fairly quickly because the blocks are 18"

    Geo-bag by Andrea
    Here are the supplies needed. The pattern pieces will be printed and available at the retreat. This is a free pattern.

    Samples of the bags from Andrea will be posted on the 2018 Fall Forum Retreat group this summer so you can see what they look like.

    From Andrea:

    For the large version (6”H x 10”W x 4.5”D) you need:

    ½ yard of exterior fabric, quilting weight cotton
    ½ yard of lining fabric, quilting weight cotton
    ½ yard of fusible fleece like Pellon 987F or Thermolam Plus tp970
    22” or longer #3 or #5 zipper with two pulls (Endless zipper tape would be perfect, you could also use a “normal” zipper, it’s just less convenient to open if it only has one pull.)

    For the small version (4”H x 7.5”W x 3”D) you need:

    ⅓ yard of exterior fabric, quilting weight cotton
    ⅓ yard of lining fabric, quilting weight cotton
    ⅓ yard of fusible fleece like Pellon 987F or Thermolam Plus tp970
    16” or longer #3 zipper with two pulls (Endless zipper tape would be perfect, you could also use a “normal” zipper, it’s just less convenient to open if it only has one pull.)

    The bag will be soft and slouchy when using quilting weight cotton and fleece only. If you want it to have a little more structure you could use a heavier home dec / canvas fabric, vinyl or cork for the exterior (which the designer recommends).

    If you prefer to use cotton and still want it to have a little bit more structure, you could add a layer of Pellon woven interfacing SF101 and if you want it even firmer, you could use Pellon Décor Bond 809. You would additionally need ½ yard for the large and ⅓ yard for the small version of either interfacing.

    Wedge Tree Skirt by Jean
    This class will be a demonstration on how to use the The 10 degree wedge ruler to make a wedge ruler Christmas tree skirt (please see the picture in the group photographs to see what the wonderful project looks like.) The ruler which comes with the pattern is available for purchase at Missouri Star Quilt Company for $21.00 https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...ee-wedge-ruler

    For the project, you will use yardage for the 50" circle Christmas tree skirt:

    10 Degree Wedge Ruler (which the pattern is included with the ruler)
    2 yd color A ( background fabric),
    1-3/8 yd Color B (wide zigzag stripe),
    3/4 yd Color C (narrow zigzag stripe),
    3-1/8 yard backing,
    54" square batting,
    5/8 yd binding.

    **If it will be used as a table topper or round quilt with no hole in the center, an additional 7" square is needed to cover the hole (similar to a Dresden plate.)

    Just an FYI: It uses a lot of fabric, and there will be some big scraps, mainly because the wedge pieces are long and you don't get that many sections from each strip set. (6 strip sets, 6 pieces from each set)

    Please feel free to watch the demo before deciding if you wish to purchase the fabric and ruler with pattern to make the Christmas Tree Skirt.

    Additional ideas of what to bring are listed on this post https://forum.missouriquiltco.com/gr...371&do=discuss
    If you have any questions, please ask me
