10” squares:   1 square for each block you want to make 

Background:   (1) 9-1/2” square for each block you want to make.

Other materials and supplies:

Winding Ways pattern, download from QuiltSmart’s website: Winding Ways Pattern Download

Rotary cutter and mat;  the mat need not be a large one, as you’ll be trimming blocks to about 8”

Ruler:  a square-up ruler—12-1/2” (or larger) preferred, but 8-1/2” will work

Shears for cutting interfacing and fabric shapes

PurpleThang, or your favorite tool for turning corners

Sewing machine in good working order, with foot or other method to sew accurate ¼” 

Standard sewing notions:  pins, spare machine needles, etc.

Pre-Cutting:  Roughly cut out the melon shapes, leaving a margin outside the dashed lines for each piece.
         Cut your background fabric into 9-1/2” squares.  (You need not cut it all, but you’ll want a few for class.)

Lunch:  We will order out for lunch ( from Pizza Counter, Pizza Hut, or Jimmy John’s, according to participants’ wishes) but you may bring your own lunch, if you like.  The shop has a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster oven.
