One Block Wonder



In this 6-hour class you will learn how to create a kaleidoscopic watercolor quilt using hexagons.  During this class we will learn about creating the hexagons, designing with them and finishing the quilt top. 
Materials

  • 6 repeats of a fabric, and maybe a little more to add to the border or the back. It is fun to see a slice of the original fabric along with the quilt. DO NOT PRE-WASH THE FABRIC!!!!
    *************** Fabric Considerations *************
    Your quilt will be more interesting if:
    • YOU like the colors.
    • There is a minimal background in the fabric. Too much background produces kaleidoscopes with no design and all background.
    • There is movement - flowers, animals, amorphous shapes. A flowing leaf will produce a more interesting kaleidoscope than a bare stick.
    • Avoid straight lines as in buildings or stripes. They are not as dynamic and they require much more precision when sewing.
    • Skip fabrics with an obvious repeat every few inches, to avoid repeats of exactly the same kaleidoscope - think VARIETY!
    • I like large floral or animal prints. It is interesting to see a kaleidoscope formed of fish tails or lion's noses or the tires of a car or even a cowboy's hand waving as he rides the bucking bronco.
    • It might be helpful, when shopping, to use 2 mirrors arranged in a 'V' placed on the fabric to get a hint as to the kaleidoscopes it will form.
  • Rotary Cutting tools - mat, rotary cutter, rulers - one long, one short, and one a 60 degree ruler
  • Flower Pins. These pins lay flat; flat enough for a ruler to be over them and the ruler will still be flat against the fabric
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Sewing machine
