Jigsaw Puzzle Quilt - Eugene



Instructor: Diane Williams                        Capacity: 4                        

This quilt was inspired by a customer who saw something similar on Pinterest.  The more I looked at the quilt the more I realized just how easy it is!  With some simple preparation and planning, this complicated-looking quilt can be sewn together in no time.  And it is infinitely customizable.

This is a 2-part class: Thursday October 15 from 2-5pm, and Thursday October 22 from 10:30am-5pm.

In the first class we’ll cut the jigsaw shapes and plan the placement of the blocks.  Bring your fabric, steam-a-seam, Accuquilt supplies (if you’re using them), scissors, small pressing mat and iron (if you have them) and pins.

In the second class we’ll sew sew sew these pieces together!  At the end of the class you should have a finished or almost finished top.  We’ll talk about border options and quilting ideas.

Supply List:

      Sewing machine in good working order (if your machine needs service please have that done before the class!) and its power cord, foot control and manual.

      One “Layer Cake” made up of 42 pieces.

      One coordinated “Charm Pack” of 42 pieces.

      2 yds 12” x 18” Lite Steam-A-Seam 2.

      Neutral sewing thread for piecing and matching bobbin thread.

      80/12 Universal or Topstitch needle, ~or~ 75/11 quilting needle.

      ¼” piecing foot.

      Standard sewing supplies.

      Accuquilt cutter and dies to cut puzzle shapes (if you choose to make your shapes this way.  See list below for recommended shapes.) *otherwise* a few small pieces of cardstock (at least 3” x 3”-old greeting cards work well) pen/pencil and scissors to make templates of puzzle pieces.

Recommended but not essential:

  • Small iron and pressing matt
  • Purple Thang, stiletto or similar.

o   Note: This is a Stash-Friendly pattern!  If you don’t have or don’t want to use a layer cake/charm pack set, cut (42) 10-inch squares and (42) 5-inch squares. For every 10-inch square you must have a 5-inch square of the same fabric.  You can have more than 1 square of any fabric, or be totally scrappy-it’s all ok-just so that every 10-inch square has a matching 5-inch square.

o   Note:  This is an AccuQuilt-Friendly Pattern!  Use the 10”  square die (#55451) with your Go!Big to cut the layer cake pieces; all cutters can cut the 5” square using either die #55010 which cuts 2 squares, or die #1 in the 9” cube (#55716).

o   Recommended die shapes for puzzle pieces: best to choose simple shapes without too many small in-and-outs.  Sample used the Owl (#55333) and the boot from the Western Medley (#55227).  Other possible shapes: Dresden Plate (#55071-curved petal), Gingerbread Cookie (#55862), Butterfly (#55467), Baby Baby (#55037-duck) Fall Medley (#55041-pumpkin), 2”-3”-5” Circles (#55012), Sunbonnet Sue (#55061-hat).

 

Before the first class:

v  Pre-cut all 10” and 5” blocks

v  Trim Lite Steam-a-Seam to 15” wide (this will leave you with a long strip approx 3” wide.  Save the strip and bring with you).

v  Sub-cut the 15” wide piece into smaller pieces 15” X 5”.  Do NOT cut into 5”x5” squares.
