Good Day (Repeat)

Taught by Leslie Bergeson

Good Day (Repeat)

67" x 75"
A Yoko Saito Design

The timeless charm of this traditional quilt will become a family treasure. Use the muted colors in the pictured quilt or brighten up the world if you like. This can also be a great stash buster! A perfect project for beginning paper piecing and unlike a lot of paper pieced quilts we won't be wasting a lot of fabric! Paper piecing makes each block perfect so they fit together perfect too. The circular design adds to the intrigue of the quilt. Paper piecing at Winter Quiltfest is the best because a maid is coming in to clean up the mess!


Supply List

Fabric Requirements:

Assortment of light fabrics, (8 3/4 yard total) I used stash fabrics. About 42 fat quarters.

The background for each single block needs to be cut from the same fabric. (Beige, taupe, grey, etc.) At least 5 1/2" x 44" is needed for one block. Fat Quarters work here to get 3 backgrounds out of each.

Assortment color fabrics (yellow, red, pink, chestnut brown, grey, blue, etc.) About 42 fat quarters.

Each block is made using one color. Colors may be repeated in more than one block as with the backgrounds.  5 1/2" x 44" or 1 fat quarter per color used. I made 3 blocks per fat quarter. I picked 42 Fat Quarters of colors that I liked together.

126 blocks (don't let that scare you!)

Other Supplies:

  • 126 copies of full size template found in the book Scrap Valley by Yoko Saito (make all copies on the same machine)
  • Basic sewing kit
  • Sewing machine with throat extension
  • Extra machine needle just in case!
  • Rotary cutter, matt, and ruler
  • Paper scissors, fabric scissors

Learn basic elements to draft your own Foundation Paper-Pieced patterns in this hands-on lecture/workshop!  We'll start with a simple feather block design then move to something more detailed.  Bring a design idea or photo to create your own paper-piecing foundation pattern, ready to stitch.  Discussion will also include Deonn's "Practically Perfect Paper-Piecing" primer plus tips for drafting with electronic software.


Supply List:

Sketchpad or 6-10 sheets of plain paper, mechanical pencil, colored pencils or crayons, eraser, 12" ruler. No sewing machine required, but we will have scraps and a sewing machine set up to share in class should you desire to stitch it out.

Which Way to Go

Which Way to Go

Taught by Nancy Allen

Which Way to Go

Rows of arrows pointing back and forth create this striking twin-size quilt. Use an AccuQuilt GO! or GO! Baby for quick and accurate cutting. Or follow the simple rotary cutting instructions. When you need a quilt in a hurry, this is the perfect go-to pattern.

This quilt easily adapts to any size – from wall, to crib, to twin – or even bigger. This twin-size quilt finishes 72" by 96".  

This quilt also lends itself to a wide variety of fabric styles – from holiday, to juvenile, to your favorite fabric line. This design works equally well for both girls and boys. Why not select fabrics in a child’s favorite team’s colors, or if they are going off to college, the school’s colors.

This class will also introduce the teacher’s strategy for making scrap quilts. (Yes, this is a scrap quilt. The original quilt used between 15 and 20 different fabrics.) Consider a good variety of fabrics for the arrows, but a single fabric for the background and a contrasting fabric for the border and binding.


Supply List

Strategies for Fabric selection

Making do: Make-do scrap quilts use up your scraps and stash. You can be random with your fabrics (unified with a common background and single-fabric border). With the 68 arrows in this quilt, why not be creative and use 68 different fabrics. You’ll need about a 10" square of each fabric used in an arrow (plus some background fabric).

Coordinated scraps: Have you fallen in love with a new line of fabrics? Buy a fat-eight pack plus some yardage for the background and border (and of course backing and binding) and, TA DA! You’ve selected scrappy fabrics without having to agonize about whether they’ll go together. This is the perfect approach to a scrappy quilt if your scrap pile or fabric stash are still growing.

Planned scrappiness: Planned scrap quilts might be made from a similar style of fabrics, such as homespun plaids, batiks, or 30s reproductions. Or you might create a planned scrappy quilt by focusing on fabrics in a color scheme of only three or four colors. Just be sure to collect fabrics with a variety ofvalues (from light to dark) and scale of the print (a good mix of large, small, and medium-scale prints).

Yardage (if using AccuQuilt dies)

Using the AccuQuilt dies requires a little extra fabric. However, I’ll share tricks for how to conserve fabric and reuse scraps when using cutting dies. Using the die to cut the triangles trims the points at the same time, enabling you to easily create the hourglass units.

Black Border Print

  • 2⅜ yards for units, border and binding
    • 9 strips 3½"x 40" for border
    • 10 strips 2¼"x 40" for binding
    • 32 triangles using the AccuQuilt cutter GO! Triangle (55002) (4¼" Finished)

Light Aqua Solid

  • 6 yards for units
    • 222 triangles using the AccuQuilt cutter GO! Triangle (55002) (4¼" Finished)
    • 136 rectangles (B) 2½"x 6½"

Assorted Black and White Prints

  • 3¾ yards total for units
    • 136 triangles (sets of 2 triangles in matching fabrics) using the AccuQuilt cutter GO! Triangle (55002) (4¼" Finished)
    • 68 rectangles (B) 2½"x 6½" (one rectangle matching each set of 2 matching triangles)

Backing 6¼ yards
Batting 80" x 104"

YARDAGE (If rotary-cutting your fabrics)

Black Border Print (2⅛ yards)

  • 9 strips 3½"x 40" for border
  • 10 strips 2¼”x 40" for binding
  • 8 squares 7¼"x 7¼" cut diagonallytwice to yield 32 triangles (A) (there will be 2 extra)

Light Aqua Solid (4⅜ yards)

  • 56 squares 7¼"x 7¼" cut diagonallytwice to yield 222 triangles (there will be 2 extra)
  • 136 rectangles (B) 2½" x 6½"

Assorted Black and White Prints (2½ yards total)

  • 34 squares 7¼"x 7¼" cut diagonally  twice to yield 136 triangles (sets of 2 triangles in matching fabrics)
  • 68 rectangles (B) 2½"x 6½" (one rectangle matching each set of 2 matching triangles)

Backing 6¼ yards
Batting 80" x 104"

OTHER SUPPLIES

OPTIONAL: Accuquilt GO! or GO! Baby die cutter and dies

I will have my AccuQuilt Go! Baby die cutter and triangle die in class. There won’t be time for everyone to cut all of their triangles during class, but you may try out the die cutter to see how you like using it.

  • GO! Triangle (55002) (4¼" Finished) – NOTE: This is the only die that I used. It made making the hourglass units quick and easy. It works with both the GO! and GO Baby! cutters.
  • GO! Strip Cutter-6½" (55086) (6" Finished)
  • GO! Strip Cutter-3½" (55032) for border

GO! Strip Cutter-2¼” (55053) for binding

Quilt Size Options:

Baby Quilt (54" x 54")
Make it Mini: 36" x 36" (blocks are half the size of the original)

create your own quilt using your creative process in selecting a floral fabric and adding other fabrics that enhance the design. Fabric and color choices are unlimited in a quilting market that has so much variety. You may already have fabric that you have been waiting to use for that
special quilt. Come have fun creating your one of a kind Botanical Quilt.

Bio

Hello! My name is Lisa Crabb. I have been a resident of Logan since 1999, originally from Heber City. My two greatest loves, besides my Family and adventuring in the Outdoors is Silversmithing and Sewing. I earned a BFA in Art Education from USU and began teaching silversmithing at LHS until I had my first child and decided to be a full time mom. 

Since a young age I have had “easy access” to all types of art supplies and materials, including fabric. I remember receiving a shirt box full of fabric for Christmas when I was about 12 and felt like I had been given the world. I sat along side my mom while she designed and sewed. I marveled at the magic and learned as I watched.

I began sewing my first quilt in 2001 and have been sewing all sorts of quilts, garments, dolls, bags, etc... ever since. I am a member of the Cache Valley Modern Quilt Guild. I have had the opportunity to attend a few amazing quilt retreats and classes with some of the greats in sewing and fabric, such as Anna Maria Horner, Amy Butler, Sarah Jane, Amy Smart, Lizzy House, and others who have been an inspiration and have shared a love for fabric and sewing.
