Laura Heine Mini Bouquet Quilt - Tustin



The mini quilted “Bouquet” is a bright and fun collage project that can be finished in a day if you have completed your prep work or over the weekend if you want! Mel’s has Laura Heine’s newest fabric collection in stock, and they are perfect for this project, or you can use your own fabrics to create a custom art piece. I’ve included yardage requirements. I am also going to demonstrate how to add a sleeve to hang the quilt if you decide to make a wall hanging.

Supplies Needed:

Teeny Tiny Collage pattern Group #11, Bouquet, Mosaic, Statement by Laura Heine**

2 - ¼ yards or 2 FQ of background fabrics.

⅛ yard for the table

¼ yard black fabric for vase outline

¼ yard top of inside vase

¼ yard water inside the vase

⅛ green fabric for steams

3-5 FQ (or ¼ yards) of floral fabrics. You want the flowers to be a mix of sizes. You also want to have leaves or greenery you can cut out and place around the vase.

Cute cuttables that you can add to your vase. I used a Firefly and a moth.

2/3 yard backing fabric

2/3 yard Warm and Natural batting*

FQ binding fabric

⅛ yard for fabric sleave. (Optional)

3-5 yards of Steam-A-Seam 2*

2/3 yard Pattern Ease – I will have Pattern Ease to sell in class. Or you can use a solid piece of white or cream cotton.

Precision Fusing Mat 17” x 24” **

Applique Pressing Sheet*

#2 pencils

Iron and ironing mat**

Painter’s tape

6 1/2” x 24” or 8 ½”x 24” ruler*

Unscented Dryer Sheets

Sewing Supplies

Sewing machine in good working order with slide on table.

40wt or 50wt thread to quilt* (We will talk about quilting in class. Thread color is a key component to this project.)

Walking Foot or Dual Feed Foot *

#1 foot or Zig Zag that you would like to grid quilt with*

Chalk marking tool*

Bernina Thread Lubrication Unit**

A few Gallon sized Ziplock bags

This is an all-day class. Some students might finish their collages and start quilting, but some might just work on the fabric collage.

FYI: You may or may not use your sewing machine.

 

BEFORE CLASS:

Please come to class with the fabrics ironed onto Steam-A- Seam 2. You can start to cut out your flowers if you want. Make sure you leave about 1/8th of an inch of background fabric around the flowers. You can cut out partial flowers and leaves and work them into your collage. If you have questions, we can work on this in class. Sort the different flowers in Ziplock bags. Also start think about how big you want your project to be, and what you want it to end up as. A wall hanging? A pillow? A small quilt for a table ? Bring more fabrics than you think you will need to class.
