Conquer That Pesky Y Seam!

Strip Pieced Lily Block
July 27, 10 AM - 4PM

Instructor - Becky Stowers

The next quilt class at the Barn is a strip pieced lily block, with an appliqued stem and leaf.  Block construction includes diamond shaped pieces, with Y seams, a great technique to learn.

Make the pieced version, or make the block using plain fabric, or make both versions and combine in your quilt.

 Inspired by a block from Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.

Class Fee $40

Class fee includes 1 yd. background fabric.  Additional fabric will be available for 
                         purchase if you desire.

What you will need to bring:

Sewing machine

Rotary cutter and ruler


Fusible Web - bring it if you have it, or you may purchase it in class

You will need  fabrics  for the petals and the leaves and stem.
If you want to make the strip pieced version, you will need 1" strips in in a variety of colors.  You can also use unpieced fabric for the petals.  Stripes can work well for this. Bring a variety of greens for stems and leaves. We will not be exchanging fabric this time. 

Sandwich - If you'd like to bring one (some snacks and drinks will be provided)
