Pickle Dish Workshop by Sara Gallegos

October 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


“Sara will teach how to cut out all 3 of the pieces being mindful of grain line and bias. We will then work on piecing the fans and finish with curved piecing to complete the blocks. This is not the world’s easiest block, She recommends proficient sewers with a good,consistent 1/4” seam take this class. This quilt is really cool scrappy or more high contrast as shown in the picture.  Here are the supplies everyone will want to bring with them:
Small (28mm) Rotary Cutter
Spinning cutting mat
Rotary Cutting Ruler
Mini Ironing Station
Fabric Folding Pen (Recommended, not required)
Spray Starch
Fine Quilting pins
Good Quality Piecing Thread
Sewing Machine
Favorite 1/4” Foot
2 Yards Light Background Fabric
1 1/2 Yards Light Center “Football” Fabric – sample shown using same fabric for Background & Footballs. You may use 3-1/2 yards to make it the same, or mix the amounts between different fabrics to make it scrappy.
8-11 Fat Quarters Medium to Dark Fat Quarters For “Pickles”
1 1/2 Yards Each of Two Coordinates for Center Squares of Blocks.
For anyone who would like to purchase the fabrics or notions needed from Decorative Stitch, we will extend our 20% off class supply discount.
I will bring a Pickle Dish Template Set for each student with grips added to the backside which is necessary for cutting out the pieces. This will be $20 per person in addition to the $40 workshop fee.”
