Class requirements for Lesley's Chevron Quilt

Chevron quilt class

 

 

There are different methods to make chevron quilts.

I will teach you a method using 5 inch squares  - and show you an alternative method using strips.

 

 

Please bring to the class:-

 

Fabrics:-             to make a 48” square quilt

 

12 fat quarters  OR  ½ metre of 6 fabrics

-each fat quarter makes 1 zig zag  therefore 12 fat ¼ makes twelve different colour  zigzags

- if you buy ½ metres – you will have a repeat of the 6 colours

 

A scrap quilt option

Mixed 5” squares – you will need 72

PLUS 1 ½ metres of a background for alternating zig zags

 

Thread:-

A neutral colour for piecing

 

Equipment:-

Sewing machine in good working order – with all leads, attachments and manual.

-       We will be using a standard machine foot – not the ¼ inch one initially.

Rotary cutting mat, long ruler and cutter

8” to 12” square ruler is useful if you have one

Sewing kit – pins, scissors etc

Propelling pencil

Fabric marking pen – eg Sewline

Notebook and pen

 

Please note – I have not given quantities for wadding and backing – in case of change to size.

 

 

 

This is a day class so bring your lunch or buy from the many shops in the street.

Drinks will be provided – tea, coffee and water.

 

 

I look forward to meeting you on the day.
