Charm Elements Pack #1 Instructions

Charm Elements Pack #1
Judy Niemeyer Quilting


Pre-cutting the fabrics is a mandatory requirement prior to taking this course.  Please begin preparing for class at least 1-WEEK 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 very difficult time keeping up and participating in the instruction. We recommend reading through your entire pattern before beginning.


Prior to class, I would like to see the following:

   1)      Please read and familiarized yourself with the entire pattern Booklet, including completion of all the cutting instructions on pages2 -3. Pages 1-4 cover your fabric selection, layout, fabric sorting, organization, and cutting instructions for your foundation units and template layout sheets.

 2)      If you have never followed my cutting instructions before, it will likely be helpful for you to contact the shop or your instructor with any questions you might have BEFORE you begin cutting your fabric.

CORRECTIONS: PLEASE visit our website prior to class and make sure that you have the latest corrections for the pattern.  Corrections are listed in our pattern gallery on our website at http://quiltworx.com/patterns. Click on the Charm Elements Pack #1 pattern and check the right column of the webpage for more information.  If your pattern has a QR Code printed on the back, you may also scan this with your smartphone to go directly to the page and upload the corrections to your phone.

Please take into consideration that this class is about paper piecing, not cutting. If you do not come to class with your cutting complete, you may not have an opportunity to do any piecing during the workshop. The cutting for this quilt takes time and organization. Please be ready to go once class starts.
