Haptic Lab Map or Constellation Quilt 1, Preparation and Set-Up
Lakes Makerie, Minneapolis. Let us help you make a Map or Constellation quilt using a template from Brooklyn Based Haptic Labs. Choose your pattern: Minneapolis (YAY!), Chicago, NYC, Paris, Madison and Northern Constellations, USA map and World Map are in stock.
Class fee includes: Pattern, organic cotton/bamboo batting, curved safety pins, basting needle and thread.
You will also need: 1 5/8 yard of each of 2 fabrics >45” wide for front and back of quilt. We have lots of beautiful choices and will be happy to make recommendations. We highly recommend purchasing and pre-washing fabrics before coming to class, though this isn't absolutely necessary.
Before starting, consider what color scheme (if any) you intend to work in and what you want to emphasize to make the map “your own" we’ll work together to get you started. This is a fun and collaborative class and you’ll leave with a basted “quilt sandwich” ready to hand-quilt at your own pace. Limit 8.
We'll continue with a map quilt embroidery class (optional) the following week, to help you keep your momentum.
