Prep Collage Class - Sewing Room

Prep Class for Collage Workshop. The prep class is required.


Instructor:  Kelly Zellars, Certified Laura Heine Instructor. $15


Required Supplies

Pattern: Students can choose any of the patterns listed below. Please note the size of the patterns. They vary!

Spool of Flowers,  25” x25”

Featherweight Sewing Machine, 26” x 32”.

Teeny Tiny Collage Group #5.  This includes 3 patterns, a tomato pin cushion, a smaller Featherweight sewing machine, and a small dress form.  You will make one of these 3 if you choose this pattern. All finish to approximately 16” x 20”.

Mini Pin Cushion, 30” x 30”.

There is also a pattern, Perfect Dress Form available. However it is 20” x 60” and given its size, it is not recommended for the class.  A future project!


All students must have their own pattern.  The Spool of Flowers is the quickest design but all are beginning to intermediate.  Choose early to ensure availability. The store may need to order since many of these are quite popular. Students get a 10% discount on all class materials. 

Applique Pressing Sheet.  Must be able to see through it.  Laura Heine’s patterns list the brands, Precision Fusing Mat or the Goddess Applique Pressing Sheet.  Most patterns need a 17 x 24 mat but check your pattern.  Gypsy Quilter also makes a nice see through pressing sheet in various sizes.

Steam a Seam 2 (not the LITE version).  Bring at least 2 yards, 12” wide. If you purchase the wider size, adjust the amount accordingly. Steam a Seam2 is the only fusible that works for Laura’s type of collage quilts. For the Prep Class, you only need 2 yards.  You will need more to complete the collage but you can purchase additional amounts on the day of class as needed.

Fabric:  Bring a variety of scraps or small pieces of floral fabrics (patterns suggest sizes and number of fabrics but these are approximate).  Include a few other designs such as birds, leaves, and vines.  It’s also fun to include prints that fit with your pattern choice. For example, you may want to include fabrics and motifs that reflect thread, measuring tapes, scissors, etc. The best collages include different size prints, large, medium, small, and almost solid. 

Scissors: Bring sharp scissors. You can choose any scissors, but I find small or medium scissors work best for making collages. Karen K Buckley medium scissors with ridged blades make cutting easier.  I also LOVE the small red curved Karen Buckley scissors for cutting curved pieces.

Iron, ironing mat or pad (Shop also has 2 irons but many students like to have one at their table)
