ELEMENTARY (Quilt-As-You-Go) QUILT  – Supplies (3 of 16 videos) Page 1

Before I go over the supplies that you might need for this quilt, you might want to download this Supply List. You can go to LearnHowToQuilt.com. Find “Quilting Classes” and then go to “Elementary Quilt” and this supply list will be there.

So to make a 9 square small quilt with 2 different colors, you will need 1/2 yard of each of the different fabric and a 1/2 yard of batting. I’ll talk more about this fabric in the next video.
I’ll give you directions to cut out your squares using a rotary mat, cutter, and rule. Now, if you don’t have these, you can use just regular scissors with a template. And I will show you how to make a template out of cardboard, like this. Or if you want to, you can go online and download this paper template at LearnHowToQuilt.com under Elementary Quilt. And then glue that on to cardboard. So to make this template, you’re going to need: scissors, ruler, glue stick, cardboard.

After cutting out my fabric, I like to then mark my fabric. And I am just using a great big “X” here but in order to see that I need to use a marking pencil or sometimes I use tape. Next I’m ready to sew my quilting square together. So I’m going to pin it. Of course you need pins and then you’re going to have to make the decision: “Are you going to sew by hand or by machine?” If I sew by hand, I’m going to want to have my hand sewing supplies; threaded needle, pins, scissors ready. If I sew by machine, I want to have my…ah..my machine in working order with a regular foot. It’s nice if I use this walking foot. If you don’t have a walking foot that is OK but a walking foot makes it much easier to sew over those many thicknesses of fabric…ah…the batting, the top and the back … so good to have but not necessary.

You’re also going to want to choose your thread. You can use matching thread in the top and in the bobbin or they could be different. That’s a personal preference. And last but not least, you want to make sure you have a hot dry iron to press your fabric before cutting into it. Just a reminder that you can find all the information listed at LearnHowtoQuilt.com under Quilt Classes, Elementary Quilt.
