If you like to quilt and/or want to learn to foundation piece a small project as a souvenir from the Oregon Gathering this summer, you can join us in this small project! It is a foundation-pieced Coquille River Lighthouse quilt that you can make into a pillow or a wall hanging.
For more information about the project and to communicate with the teacher, you may email Suzan Williams (of Anacortes, WA) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Plan to have fun, most of all, with this little project and to enjoy the company of other quilters in the process. This workshop is one of the workshop choices at 1:00 on Saturday.
Here is the information you will want before making the Coquille River Lighthouse quilt:
The pattern and kit of fabric are available separately at Forget-Me-Knot quilt shop in Bandon, OR. They cost about $8.00 each. Forget-Me-Knots Quilt Store (Click Here)
You may buy your pattern ahead of time or contact the shop to tell them you will want to come in to buy it before the class, mid-July.
We are using pattern SOL 101 Coquille River Lighthouse Bandon, OR.
size 9 3/4" high x 9 1/2" wide. Borders and other fabrics are according to personal preference.
If you are experienced and have a stash of suitable fabrics, you will want to use your own fabrics. Otherwise, you can buy the optional kit of fabric.
Since we are making this project on our camp-out, we will trace the foundation onto plain lightweight muslin fabric and hand-piece. You will want to bring some muslin fabric or lightweight pellon for this purpose. A piece 20 inches square or so will do.
You will also want to bring all ordinary sewing supplies:
- needle (number 9 sharp or whatever you prefer)
- Marking pen (a fine permanent marker for tracing)
- Black embroidery thread and embroidery needle
See you there!
