Make & Take Citrus Potholder

Would you like to learn foundation paper piecing (FPP) and make a cute summer accessory for your kitchen at the same time?  Then this class is for you!  Lindsay will take you through the basics of paper piecing during the afternoon to make this adorable citrus potholder.
This is an advanced beginner level class for those that have pieced at least one quilt project before.  Class includes the pattern, foundation papers, and template plastic.  You just bring your favorite fabric and sewing supplies!

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: Need to be able to sew a straight stitch on a sewing machine and have pieced at least one quilt project before. No paper piecing experience necessary.
Materials Included: The pattern, foundation papers and template plastic will be provided in class
Requirements: Supplies provided in class (included in your class fee):
-Foundation piecing papers
-Template plastic

Supplies to bring:
-Fabric (note – solid colors work best for this project)
- Rind color (deep orange for an orange, medium yellow for a lemon or grapefruit, deep green for a lime) – one 2.5”x WOF strip
- Segment color (light orange for an orange, light yellow for a lemon, light pink for a grapefruit, light green for a lime) – one fat eighth (9”x 22”)
- Pith (white or cream) – one 2.5”x WOF strip
- Background and backing (coordinating color) – one fat quarter
- Binding – one 2.5”x WOF strip of any coordinating color or print

-Batting – for a potholder that will be decorative only, any batting will do. For one that is functional, cut three 9x9 pieces from a 100% cotton dish or bath towel. (These will be trimmed down to 8x8, so they don’t have to be perfect).
-Coordinating Thread
-12” Add-a-Quarter Ruler
-Small iron and pressing mat
-Rotary Cutter & Mat – small 12” mat is fine
-Small Iron & board (Irons and boards are available to share but having your own keeps you from having to get up and down constantly)
-Seam Ripper
-Acorn Easy Press pen – easier way to put spray starch on tiny seams (Optional – the shop has them available for purchase)
-Repositionable Glue Stick – Elmer’s or Scotch brand (Optional)
-Erasable marking pen or pencil to aid in quilting (Optional)
-Sewing Machine ready to sew
-Your regular sewing supplies (seam ripper, stiletto, etc.)
Instructor: Lindsay Dreher
Instructor Bio: Lindsay has worked at Fabric Fanatics for almost 4 years, and loves packaging products and helping customers color coordinate their fabrics. She’s a home school mom and heavily involved with Scouts BSA with her son and daughter. Lindsay learned how to sew clothes as a teen, and when her kids were younger, she figured “if I can make Halloween costumes, I can make a quilt, right?” Unfortunately, she didn’t have a quilting community around to teach her basic info, and that first project has disintegrated because she didn’t actually quilt it after piecing! After getting connected with coaches and friends who have helped her along, Lindsay has picked up tons of quilting tips, and tried out many new techniques. Her favorites include paper piecing and small projects that she can get done in one sitting, before she has to run off to another scouting event.
Price includes pattern, foundation papers, and template plastic
