Class Summary:
This pattern is perfect for coordinated dark and medium colored fabrics (cut into 10” squares) along with a strong background color to create the best contrast to allow the design to stand out.  If you’ve been using  your Stripology ruler for cutting strips, this is a great pattern to help you further develop skills with the ruler.

Required Supplies: 
  • Nellie Pattern (available in shop)
  • Stripology Squared ruler (highly recommended for its accuracy and ease of cutting for this pattern)
  • 10” squares - dark and medium colored fabrics that are cut into 10” squares and a background color that contrasts well with those squares.  See fabric requirements below to determine how much fabric you’ll need. If you’re using pre-cut 10” squares for the colors, please DO NOT starch them.  If using fat quarters or other yardage for your colors, starching fabrics is highly recommended as it helps to stabilize the fibers, prevents stretching and reduces raveling. Yardage for background should be starched first then cut into 10” squares. Fabrics chosen for the shop sample were cut from fat quarters. Before cutting your fabric, you may find it helpful to review a Stripology 101 video on YouTtube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4FosWUIaqU

Class Supplies:

  • GEasy Ruler Stickers - highly recommended (Post-It brand arrows are too large and translucent for this project)
  • ¼” foot made for your sewing machine
  • Sewing Machine in good working condition (with the manual and accessories)
  • Pins
  • Spare Needles (I prefer an 80/12)
  • Snipping Scissors
  • Neutral Thread and full bobbin(s) 
  • Seam ripper
  • Rotary cutter and extra blade(s)
  • Cutting mat - must have your own for this project
  • Pressing mat
  • Portable iron

Recommended: 
Cleaning your machine on a regular basis (and before a class) helps it to work efficiently and helps you to avoid issues while in class.
