Fabric Requirements:

This is NOT a precision project. The design can be scaled up or down to fit the size of YOUR composition. As a guide, to make a single set of light beads against a dark/contrasting background, roughly 24”x24” you will need:

  • One 15”x3” in strip of light fabric for the beads
  • One 15”x1” in strip of light fabric for the strings
  • Two 15”x 11⁄2” in strips of dark fabric for the background
  • Two 24”x11⁄2” in strips of dark fabric for the sides
  • To make multiple sets, similar to the sample, you will need:
  • One fat quarter of dark background fabric (at least 18”x22”)
  • One 15”x3” in strip and one 15”x1” in strip in five different colors for the beads and strings.

Create Fabric Runs Fearlessly - Jennifer Houlden

 

Fabric Selection:

  • Variety of Fabrics in a Color You Love 
  • Pull out many fabrics so you have choices; pile them on a table ready to play.
  • No need to organize them initially; that will be part of the workshop.
  • Cottons and Batiks: These work well for this project.
  • Variety of Values: Include fabrics ranging from really light to really dark and everything in between.
  • Fabrics with texture such as prints, geometrics, tone-on-tones, solids, multi-colored fabrics, pretty much anything goes!

Other Items:

  • Natural light: if possible, but a well-lit area is most important.
  • Color Wheel: (optional)
  • Camera: A smartphone or tablet works great as these devices have the ability to edit photos.

Size Considerations:

  • For creating a fabric run, the size doesn’t matter much, but avoid going smaller than a 10" square. A 2½" strip will also work.

Margarita Time! With Accordion Sewn HSTs™ - Beth Helfter 

My scrappy patterns, especially those featuring Accordion Sewn HSTsTM, are designed to use as many different fabrics as possible from the same color families. Therefore, for the scrappy parts of the supply list, I’ll use different language than you may be used to as your fabric pulls are not based on yardage. My advice – choose your colors, and pull every fabric you own from your stash that fits them, and you’ll only cut one square from each when we get to that part. You’ll get the most scrappy bang for your buck that way, and I know you have more fabrics than you think you do!

The fabric supplies below will make one 9 1⁄2” x 12 1⁄2” (9” x 12” finished) block, which we will create in class.

  •   Background: One fat quarter
  •   Fruity-colored scraps: 15 different fabric scraps in "margarita-y" colors
  •   Lime green (inner lime): 5-6 scraps
  •   Dark green (lime rind): One 6” square or equivalent
  •   Blue (glass stem): One 6” square or equivalent
