Because two special people asked for this project, I am offering this sweet class. It was so much fun to pick out my tree and background fabrics. And by adding the wool truck, just pure joy when I look at this quilt. I have a thing for red pick-up trucks!!
This class will be a two part class. We will meet to start working on our trees and discuss what needs to be done beyond that during class. At that time, we will also, as a group, pick our next meeting date. This is an easy project but logistically we can?t get it all done in one day.
I will be providing all the wool you need for your truck but you will need to bring your fabrics for the trees and backgrounds. Since I am providing the wools, I will just give you a supply list for the fabric requirements.
I can?t wait to decorate with my quilt this winter. I already have some ideas as to how to accessorize!!
Sewing machine with neutral thread
1/8 yard brown fabrics for trunks of trees
½ yard green fabrics for trees (this can be several pieces of fabric and also scraps will work for variety of different trees)
½ yard tan and cream fabrics for background (again, these can be a variety of fabrics)
1 yard tan fabric for borders
1/3 yard of green fabric for binding
1 ½ yards tan fabric for backing
If you have green scraps, they should be at least 5? x 6? pieces.
If you have tan scraps for the background, they should be at least 5 ½? x 7?. Tree trunks are 1 ½? x 1 ½? if you want to use scraps for those.
