Workshops - Celtic Illusions (6 hour workshop)

Celtic Illusions (6 hour workshop)


(Handout fee  $10, includes pattern  and handouts. This will be collected by the teacher by the end of class)

  • rotary ruler (I recommend 4’ x 14” and 6½” x 6½” for this class.)
  • rotary cutter
  • rotary mat,
  • pins
  • sharp pencil
  • sewing machine in good working order
  • neutral colored thread
  • seam ripper
  • 1¼ yard flannel or thin cotton batting for design wall
  • masking tape or blue painter’s tape

Optional Supplies:

  • colored pencils
  • glue stick
  • paper scissors
  • Spray sizing (Magic Sizing or Niagara Sizing), available in the laundry aisle in the grocer store or small bottle of Best Press


Light Blue (background) 1 2/3 yard  (includes binding)

Medium-Dark Blue (ring color): ¾ yard

Fabric suggestions: Tone on tone such as Moda Marbles or light pattern batiks work best.  (Do not use two highly textured fabrics. They will “fight” each other and the rings will not show.)

You can choose other colors, if you wish. Be sure to have a lighter background and a darker color for the rings. Some good combinations: Light Blue background/Dark green ring; Light Green background/Dark blue ring; Light Blue Background/Yellow Ring

Preparation for class: light mist fabrics with Spray Sizing and iron before cutting.
