Workshops - Celtic Illusions ( in-person 6 hour workshop)

Celtic Illusions ( in-person 6 hour workshop)


SUPPLY LIST (in-person class)

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


Rotary ruler (I recommend longer ruler such as a 4’ x 14” and 6½” x 6½” for this class.)

Rotary cutter

Rotary mat

Sewing supplies such as pins, seam ripper, neutral colored thread light light gray

Marking pencil: silver, white, yellow or pink  (whatever will show up on the back of your fabric)

Sewing machine in good working order

1¼ yard flannel or cotton batting for design wall

Masking tape or blue painter’s tape

Spray sizing (Magic Sizing or Niagara Sizing, available in the grocery store, near the fabric softener) 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 Stonehenge or Grunge or non-patterned batiks work best.  (Do not use two highly patterned 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.
