Our teacher for the day, SQC Member JoAnn Mendenhall, is an experienced fabric collage quilter and has previously taught at Fabric Smart. JoAnn will demonstrate and pass on to us Laura Heine’s collage techniques and all her secrets for making a successful collage quilt.

The chosen pattern for the workshop will be Laura’s Teeny Tiny Collage Pattern Group #1 – Dress, Elephant, Fish – as shown in the picture. Each of the three designs finishes at 16” x 20” and can be used as a wall hanging, pillow or stretched on a canvas and hung. You are welcome to choose a different design to work on although it will be a sample of this set that is available to see on the day.

The pattern is available for $25 either via Laura’s own website - or from Fabric Smart at 6798 Crosswinds Dr. N, Suite C101, St. Petersburg Florida 33710. Members interested in ordering the set from Fabric Smart should do so by August 30.

No sewing machine is needed on the day of the workshop.

Supplies needed on the day will be –

3 yds of 12” wide or 1 ½ yds of 24” wide fusible web (e.g. steam-a-seam 2 or Heat & Bond Lite) - (This will be sufficient for all 3 patterns.)
Marker for use on fusible web
Fine point small scissor
Applique pressing sheet – 17” x 24” minimum
Small rotary cutter
Small cutting mat – 12” x 17”
Quilters ruler 3” x 12”
Muslin or Pattern Ease Foundation – 1yd
Glue stick
20" x 24" light or plain fabric for background


A good selection of fabric scraps - No precise fabric quantities are given with the patterns as scraps can be used for the entire quilt. When choosing patterned fabrics, smaller motifs will work best as they will be in proportion to the small size of the finished quilts.
