Panel Panache Part 2

Come join us to make an amazing 7 panel quilt using panels of your choice! Each quilt will be different based on whatever panels you use! This is such a fun, creative project! It will be taught over 2 class periods.
I will be teaching students how to line up 6 matching panels using flat-head pins. We will then cut
them into strips, followed by cutting them into 60 degree triangles. I will teach students use of 60
degree rulers and demonstrate the “Strip-ology” ruler. I will show them how to efficiently sew their
piles of 6 matching triangles into 2 half-hexagon units. We will talk briefly about Part 2 of Panel
Panache so students can come back with their work prepared in advance! This will conclude Part 1
of Panel Panache.

For Part 2 you will need a flannel backed tablecloth to use as a design wall, prepared half hexie units with stitching holding them in the center, whole uncut panel, pins, and scratch paper for labeling rows, sewing machine in good working order, and basic sewing kit. Bring your phone or camera to snap a picture of your design. Prepare to have fun!
Cost: $ 25.00
