When playing one day, Aileen created a unique zippered bag. By stitching 1-1/2″ strips to a muslin foundation, a one-of-a-kind masterpiece was born.
For this one-session workshop, you will need 21 1-1/2″ strips of fabric, a muslin foundation, variegated thread, a scrap piece of batting, a fat-quarter for lining and a coordinating zipper.
Aileen will provide her pattern, Strippy Zippy Bag, to each paid registrant. Unable to make the class? You may purchase Aileen’s Strippy Zippy Bag patern for just $10.00.
Aileen is using a very old method of creating Flying Geese and by stitching one additional seam, creates two quilts! The main Flying Geese quilt is large enough for a queen/double bed, and Offspring is a generous throw size. The smaller, Offspring quilt was created, as an experiment, by Aileen to avoid wasting fabric. The result was quite satisfying. The method for making the Flying Geese for Aileen’s two quilts, incorporates only rectangles and squares.
