Instructor: Kay Roberts
This is a technique class based on the Square in a Square® piecing technique.  This method is created by sewing strips to squares and using the technique ruler to do the trimming to make it look like we cut triangles.  We do not cut triangles!  There are several options to the technique. You will be amazed at how versatile the SnS® technique can be.  We will be making Options 1-9 and learn to use the ruler to get the effects we want from the options.  I want to help you to achieve understanding and knowledge that can be put to use in using this method of quilting.  This is “the way quilting was meant to be,” fast, fun and fabulous!  Come and have fun!

Fabric and Cutting Supply List:  - Pre-cut prior to workshop
10-3” light colored squares
8- 1 ¾” dark strips (selvage to selvage)
4 – 2 ¼” light strips (selvage to selvage)
2-3” dark strips

Bring extra fabric in case we need to cut more strips.  The strips don’t all have to be the same fabric, just have lights and darks.  You can use shorter strips but bring enough to meet the fabric requirement.
