Tribal Song Quilt Class

TRIBAL SONG A quilt by Brittany Lloyd of LO & Behold Stitchery
This quilt “combines the rich tradition of quilting with modern design. We used Shell Rummel’s Natural Affinity fabric line to make our 30”x 46” sample. The quilt can be made baby size as we did or a larger throw size 50”x66”. The pattern gives the fabric requirements needed for both sizes.

We actually used 5 fabrics plus background fabric instead of the 4 fabrics plus background as required by the pattern.
If using 5 fabrics, you will need a quarter yard more for the borders of the chevron rows of the baby size (18” additional fabric for the throw size).

I believe you can complete most of the quilt in a day or perhaps a little more if you accomplish cutting your strips prior to class.
Page 3 in the pattern gives the cutting instructions. There is one change to make if using 5 colors as in the sample. 1. Baby Size - Cutting color 1 says cut 4 - 2” x WOF (width of fabric). That would be color 5 for the 4 strips only. 2. Throw Size – Cutting color 1 says cut 5 – 2 ¾ “ x WOF. That would be color 5 for the 5 strips only.

Materials to bring:
Pattern – read over it prior to class Sewing machine clean and in good working order
New 80/12 microtex needle in your machine
quarter inch foot
foot and 50 wt neutral thread for piecing
foot pedal and electrical cord
Make sure you have a filled bobbin.
Don’t forget your slide on table. Scissors, seam ripper, rulers, rotary cutter with sharp blade, cutting mat (a turning style will be helpful), small iron and ironing pad if desired, pins, marking pencils or pens and a stiletto. We will be working with many half square triangles and squaring up.

Lunch will be a 30 minute break, so bring a lunch or go to a nearby restaurant. The Modern Sewist does not have a microwave in the shop.

Looking forward to sewing with you soon!
