Chip Out of Every Block kit (cube fabric and pattern)
• Rotary cutter
• Medium rotary mat
• Rotary ruler for cutting your strips
• 6” x 6” (or similar size) rotary ruler for squaring up triangle units
(I like the Omnigrid square ruler that has a 45 degree line down the middle of the ruler.)
• Straight pins with heads
• Light Gray piecing thread for sewing machine
• ¼” foot (or set up your machine with a ¼” seam allowance)
• Basic sewing supplies you always like to work with (thread clips, seam ripper, etc.)
Fabric – cubes You will need to pick different 6 colors: you will need a non-busy light, medium, dark of each color: ¼ yard of each value. Example, if you select blue as one of your colors, you will need a light blue, medium blue and dark blue. Be sure fabric is non-busy, such as a tone on tone fabric, like Stonehenge or a gradated fabric such as Karen’s Serendipity and Colorfall fabrics. Karen has a video for you to watch about your fabric selection here: https://youtu.be/WdKccF_wYRU
Gradated fabric can be ordered from Karen’s webstore here: https://www.karencombs.com/page.php?ID=17
Fabric – background and sashing: 1/4 yard black or neural non –busy fabric
If you wish to make a larger quilt, purchase ½ yard or 1 yard of this background fabric. Examples of good neutral colors: black, deep navy blue, brown, tan, ivory, white
Fabric – Border – this can be purchased after class.
