Watercolor Quilt Basics with Maria



Have you seen our FCQ exclusive North Star Nativity pattern or our watercolor sunflowers model? They are very simple watercolor quilts. Learn the basics of making a watercolor quilt using scraps, jelly roll strips or yardage. These make fast and easy gifts with minimal sewing. Class includes North Star Nativity or Sunflowers pattern, your choice.


Your $25 class fee includes the class instruction, 1 yard of 2-1/2” fusible grid and your choice of the North Star Nativity or Watercolor Sunflower pattern. Fabrics are not included in the class.

You will need to decide which quilt you want to make BEFORE class meets. If you would like to raid your stash for fabrics, we can cut them with the AccuQuilt cutter.

If you choose to make the Sunflower quilt, you will need an assortment of quarter yard cut OR fat quarters OR pre-cut 2-1/2” squares of Blues (sky colors), Yellows and Oranges (sunflower), Greens (stems/grass), and Browns (ground). For the Nativity quilt you will need an assortment of quarter yard cut OR fat quarters OR pre-cut 2-1/2” squares of lights, mediums and darks. It is better to bring more than you think you will need so that you have more options. The entire quilt takes 195 squares for the background. You will also need 1-1/4 yards of black for applique pieces, borders and binding. 

Please plan a time to come into the shop if you need help PRIOR to class or if you would like us to pre-cut your squares with the die cutter.

If you need to purchase fabric or supplies for class, you will receive a 10% discount on any merchandise you buy the day of class as a student discount.

Sewing machine

1/4" foot (with guide is helpful but not required)

Neutral thread (beige, gray or taupe)
