This is the easiest BOTEOM ever!
Each entry consists of two strip pieces AKA strata. The background fabric is Kona Eggshell. Please do not substitute any other fabric for the background. While supplies last, you’ll get a 6” by WOF piece of the background fabric at the meeting. This is enough to cut two 2.5” strips. For the Bolt fabric, use any print in the chosen color scheme: Kona Gold (golden brown) Kona Ochre (golden yellow/mustard), Kona Caribbean (turquoise blue), and Kona Terracotta (rust/burnt orange). Prints may include other colors but should “read” as the palette color.
For each strata, you will need a 2.5 x 33” print strip AND a 2.5 x 29” Kona Eggshell strip.
How to measure and cut: From Kona Eggshell, cut a 2.5” strip from 42 inch wide fabric (folded in half as it came off the bolt). Keeping fabric folded in half, place the 14.5” marking on your ruler on the FOLD of your strip, and cut it with your rotary cutter. This will open out to a 2.5 x 29 inch strip. Be sure to have the FOLD under your ruler!
For the prints, follow procedure as above, but place the fold at the 16.5 inch mark on the ruler. This will open up to a 33 inch strip.
Sew each end of the solid to each end of the print. Yes – that’s what I said – you’ve now made a circle. Fold the circle so the Eggshell pieces are together. Cut the Eggshell piece crosswise once, but not in the middle! Offset your cut so the Eggshell is wider on one side of the print than on the other. Don’t cut closer to the seam than 6 or 7 inches or it will look too unbalanced.
Now make another one!
You’re done! Turn them in at the May meeting. Remember, each entry is two strata.
