Cut, piece and press your way to success with the Venetian Tile pattern. Once students learn the cutting, piecing and pressing techniques that are the foundation for all award-winning quilts, these skills can be put to use later, in any block, sashing, or border. Students will receive and discuss a hand-out, Judging Criteria for Piecing, which describes what to avoid, and what results to strive for in piecing a quilt.

SUPPLIES:
Iron, ironing board (We can share these.)
Rotary cutter (with a fresh blade), and cutting mat (as large as you can carry)
Necessary rulers (6” x 24” ruler AND 12” square ruler) with non-slip grips adhered.
(OPTIONAL, but handy! : 6” x 12” ruler, 4” x 4” ruler)
Sewing Machine (with a fresh needle) foot pedal, cords and extension cord. Bring a ¼” foot if you have one.
High quality sewing thread
Scissors, fine sharp pins, stiletto, mechanical pencil, seam ripper (only if you make mistakes!)
Point Trimmer (if you have one, because I have a trick substitute that is free)
OPTIONAL: Grey Scale and/or value finder, template plastic and template marking pencil, freezer paper.
OPTIONAL: Fresh pack of sticky notes OR OPTIONAL: Ideal Seam Guide Piecing Package by Sew Very Smooth. I paid for mine and I get no kick back from the company, but I use mine all the time.

Fabric: For the purposes of this class, please do not bring fat quarters. Solid colors make life easier, as the front is the same as the back. A Kona-like fabric is more forgiving than a tightly woven batik. But you may bring any fabric that you like. Bring fabrics in at least two colors as follows:

Color A;
3/4 yd or more of white or near white (or lightest value of your chosen color A)
1 ¼ yd or more of medium grey (or medium value of your chosen color A)
3/4 yd or more of black (or very dark value of your chosen color A)

Color B
3/4 yd of more, EACH, of a light/medium value AND a medium/dark value of your color B. This quilt can be either monochromatic, or polychromatic.

If you want more than two colors, you may choose to also use a Color C, D, E, etc. If so, please bring ¾ yard or more of a light/medium value AND a dark/medium value of your Color C, your Color D, and/or your Color E.
