Activity for March: Its time to learn all about learning how to make a scarf with Rose. The supplies you will need are:
- Six (6) strips of fabric 6″ wide (x WOF) (this can be one colour or several, but each strip will be 6″ wide x WOF. Batiks work best as they don’t fray as much). Rose suggested we use bright colours for spring. You need 6 strips to make the scarf. These can be from one piece of fabric (1 yard / 36″ long), that you cut into 6″ strips. The intention isn’t to have pieced strips making up a 6″ wide strip. It won’t be soft and flowy if you do that
- Coordinating thread
- Sewing machine. Bring yours or not. We could share machines. Rose has offered to sew if we want her too.
- Sharp scissors / rotary cutter / cutting mat
Don’t forget your ‘ugly fabric’ blocks, house blocks, heart blocks and other misc. blocks for our donation/comfort quilts.
See you there! – Pat
