Mechanical pencil with Soft leads (B or HB) or soft-leaded pencil
Colored pencil to mark dark fabrics
Sharpie pen - Fine Point (not Ultra Fine)
Scissors for paper
Ruler 18” (Cthru easiest to use)
Cellophane (Scotch) tape
Large envelope to store pattern pieces
9” x 11” piece of fine grit sandpaper glued to a 9” x 11” piece of cardboard
Fabric: your choice of solids, commercial prints, and or hand dyes
Note: We’ll be working on a pieced landscape top about 15” x 24” based on templates (patterns)
I’ll provide to incorporate many piecing techniques. Sky fabric and the bottom fabric (beach, grass
or ground depending on your imagination) needs to be at least 22” wide. For the rest, fat quarters
or smaller pieces will work.
You’ll need a variety of water and foliage fabrics, something cheery for an
umbrella & tablecoth, also beach colors. Different scale patterns (large and small) and a range of
value (light to dark) will help. Fabric with photographic images are often less successful than those
patterns that remind you of pebbles or grass, etc.
See www.carolannegrotrian.com for samples based on the pattern we’ll be using.
