Crafting Workshop April 11th!

We’re finally having some welcoming, wonderful, warmer weather!  We have a lot planned for our Workshop on April 11th, from 9:30 to 2:00!  As always, bring your lunch, and all the materials and supplies needed for your craft!

Color Theory

TT-131001-ColorWheelHow do I use the color wheel to select colors for my project? What does monochromatic mean? Analogous, what is that? In Lesson 2: Color and Color Theory – All about Color Schemes, we will be answering those questions and more. Be prepared to use your imagination and creativity!

What you will need to bring:

  • a pen or pencil
  • the Lesson 1 handout; if you do not have it, one will be provided

Sewing / Quilting

The last two months we have explored triangles.  Please continue practicing making triangles, as we will have more in the future.

IMG_1824This month we will be making a very quick & easy baby quilt or lap quilt using just strips.  This is really good with novelty prints, geometrics, or any other print you would like to try!  Here’s the one I’m working on:

The pattern is on Mary Quilts, and there are quite a few examples on her website, as well as the PDF pattern.   This makes a generous sized quilt: 41″ x 56″!

What you will need to bring:

  • 1 yard of focus fabric
  • 3/4 yard of tone on tone (or coordinating print)
  • 1/2 yard accent fabric
  • add 1/2 yard for binding
  • 1 3/4 yards for backing

We will have some kits available!

Crochet

In April, we will learn how to join crocheted squares/blocks into a baby blanket. We will experiment with different layouts of the blocks first. The blocks are very easy to make and are a portable project. Since the blocks are made one at a time, you will not have the entire blanket in your lap while you crochet. A nice project to work on during the warmer months!

All materials will be provided for the baby blanket, including the completed blocks. You will need to bring:

  • a yarn needle
  • size H/8 crochet hook
  • scissors

Preview!

Next month , we will be working on Bookmarks.  The women at Wheeler loved them!  In addition to ‘scrapbook’ style, we will be experimenting with yarn and fabric!

If you have favorite (short) scriptures or pictures, bring them along to put on the scrapbook style bookmarks.

Psalm 90:17

    May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us - yes, establish the work of our hands.
