Pre-Class Cutting, Set-up and Supply List

for

Judy Niemeyer’s Desert Sky

Pre-cutting the fabrics is a mandatory requirement prior to taking this course. Please begin preparing for class at least 2-WEEKS prior to the class to make sure that you are able to get familiar with your pattern and complete the pre-cutting beforehand.  It is important that you have your pre-class cutting completed. If this step is not completed, you will have a difficult time keeping up and participating in instruction. We always recommend reading through your entire pattern several times before beginning. 

Fabric Selection:  Choose 24 batik fat quarters, 12 bright textured batiks, ranging from light to medium, and 12 dark textured batiks, ranging from medium to dark.

Preparing your Foundation Papers:  Please read and follow the instructions for “Preparing your Papers and Templates” on page 2 of your pattern.

NOTE:  PLEASE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION THAT YOU DO NOT CONFUSE FOUNDATION PAPERS WITH TEMPLATE LAYOUT SHEETS.

  • Foundation Papers: These are the foundations that you will sew the fabric directly onto.  These need to be trimmed leaving a 1/8” border.  DO NOT cut the individual units apart.
  • Template Layout Sheets: The template layout sheets are used to cut your fabric.  You will cut through these templates when you cut certain parts of your fabric. These need to be trimmed leaving a 1/16” border and used per the directions in the pattern.

Cutting Instructions:  Follow the Cutting instructions on page 2 & 3 of your pattern.  Place fabrics into the bags specified in the cutting instructions.  Complete steps 1-5 on Page 3 of your pattern under “Stacking and Cutting Out Your Fabric”.  Clip pieces together using large paper clips and place in the bags specified. Do not sub-cut the template sheets, this will be demonstrated in class.
