Great scrap quilt!  Looks hard but it's really easy to do with some clever piecing and positioning!
The interlocking design is both colorful and clever, and will definitely become the centerpiece of any room.
The object is to have the orange and yellow "stand out" as the interlocking design, however, if that is not your choice of color please feel free to change the fabric to your preference.  I used Grunge Polka Dots and Grunge Cream Solid

Choose your colors for maximum contrast.  Light or dark backgrounds work equally well just make sure you have adequate contrast.  Stash friendly.

"Weeds are just misunderstood wildflowers!" We all love Wildflowers!  So why not create them using fabrics and threads so we can enjoy them all year long! These little blooms will be made of hand dyed fabrics and threads creating little pieces of art to hang individually or to hang several on a ribbon like a wish flag or prayer flag. They could also be framed or made into a fabric book of blooms!  Join Susan for a day of learning embellishing techniques layering fabrics such as hand dyed cheesecloth, osnaburg, velveteen or linen, then hand embroidering using unique stitches including "stumpwork" (raised embroidery).  www.susanedmonsondesigns.com  ***Pattern $10

This quilt is from the book, Red and White Quilts.  In the book, it is called Happy Accident and is by Susan Ache.  I suggest that you purchase the book to be fair to the designer.  I will show you a couple of other quilts from the book.  I will be sending you cutting instructions before class, and giving you the option of three different size blocks.  You can make if scrappy, and clean out a lot of stash, or stick to one color scheme.  You will need a basic ruler to cut strips and a right angle triangle for the rest of the cutting.  (More about that when you get your supply list.)
If you have never made a strip tube quilt, then this class is for you. If you have made one, then you know how fun and easy it is. This method gives you perfect squares without trimming. You need a jelly roll, background fabric and one solid fabric to make the blocks. This goes together very fast. If you have a strip tube ruler, bring it, if not an 8 ½" square ruler or bigger will work. The pattern is $9.00. Let me know if you need one. I will have them in class.
