Stitcher's Garden BOM Sew-Along



While making a spectacular Stitcher's Garden quilt, learn more about your sewing machine. This pattern uses multiple presser feet and a variety of decorative stitches to create delightful embellished fusible applique blocks. Join Liz Granberg-Jerome on an amazing journey to make your own unique quilt!

First Sundays from 1pm to 4pm for 13 months--June 2024 to June 2025 (except 2nd Sun., Sept 8 to avoid Labor Day) at the Lumberyard Arts Center

Class fee: $25 per month, includes instruction and pattern

These two versions of Stitcher's Garden are the same quilt made in different color-ways and slightly different block placement. By thinking outside the box, you can create a unique quilt that will showcase your preference of colors and design. Each month a new technique is added that will build your knowledge of using more of your sewing machine than just the straight stitch. Even basic zigzag machines with just a couple of utility/decorative stitches can make this quilt shine!

 

Each class of this 13-month sew-along will give you basic instruction on how to use the particular pressure foot or machine technique for each month's block as you grow your quilt. Liz will demo the technique/foot during class, answer questions, and help you get started. You will then make your block between class sessions. A wide array of decorative threads will be available to borrow for use on your quilt between classes. A full breakdown of blocks, pressure feet, and block background pre-quilting ideas will be distributed at the first meeting. For Liz's Stitcher's Garden #3 that she will make along with you, she is going to use black background with jewel tone batiks for her flowers. Don't be afraid to think outside the box on your base/background color. The original pattern design was made in 1930s reproduction fabrics on white for a very soft, pastel look.

Supplies:

Background fabric for blocks from Quilters' Paradise -- 3 yards
Quilter's Dream Request thin batting, cotton or poly, twin size
Variety of fabrics from stash or a fat quarter bundle/selection for appliques and block borders; additional fabrics may be added as desired

Additional fabrics for connecting sashings and outer borders to be determined during construction

Optional:

Windman 32 piece deluxe presser feet set available on Amazon.com. This collection of sewing machine feet, with bonus low-shank snap-on adapter, contains all the feet called for with this pattern, plus a few more. These feet are created to be used with a snap-on adapter on low shank machines such as Brother, Babylock, Janome, Juki, Kenmore, and modern Singer machines. With an optional Bernina snap-on foot adapter, most of the feet can also be used by Bernina owners. Be sure to check your machine brand/model to be sure the feet will fit your particular snap-on foot or that the bonus low-shank adapter will work on your machine.

Quilting and textile art classes are co-sponsored by Quilters' Paradise and the Lumberyard Arts Center as part of the Quilt Capital of Kansas programming.
