ADVANCED PREPARATION IS RECOMMENDED! Pre-sew the strip sets before class OR (if you are attending a one-day workshop) bring an interesting multi-colored striped fabric to class for the cutting technique.

There are two methods of construction for this quilt. In class, we will learn about both methods. Instruction will cover the Faux Diamond technique, which is easier. If working with fabric scraps rather than yardage, you may prefer to use the Quarter Diamond method. Please refer to the Stone Mosaic section in Quick Diamond Quilts,  pages 77-82. Cutting details are listed on page 78 for both methods.

Jan's note:   

You will prepare fabric at home before class, and cut the strip-sets or commercial stripe fabrics in class.  The faux diamond technique is part of class instruction.

***If you prefer NOT to sew strip sets, and want to explore the cutting and design techniques with a pre-printed interesting striped fabric, please bring 2 to 4 yards of an interesting striped fabric. This is a great option for those who register and have no time to prepare advanced sewing prep before class. Click here to see interesting striped FABRIC EXAMPLES.***
