Crazy Camp Supply List:
*Purchase the Buggy Barn Crazy pattern of your choice and select fabrics according to the requirements on the pattern. You may choose from the patterns in our books, too! Everyone must purchase a pattern or book (It is O.K. to pull from your stash of books--no new purchase is required); it is a violation of federal copyright law to reproduce our patterns by any means.
*Pencil & 6” x 24” ruler for tracing
*Prior to class, please trace the crazy pattern onto freezer paper, one copy for each stack of fabric. For instance, if you have thirty fat quarters, you can cut them in two piles of fifteen, or three piles of ten so you will need two or three copies depending on how many fabrics you are comfortable cutting through. (I usually cut through twelve to fifteen at a time.) If you are making a pattern that stacks in more than one pile, (i.e. Heart Crazies, Log Cabin Crazies, Star Crazies, Triple Star Crazies, Coneflower Crazies, Crazy Rays) you will also need a copy of the master for each pile to stack on.
*Please have your fabrics ironed and ready to stack and cut.
*60mm Rotary cutter with a sharp blade and mat (18” x 24” size or larger)
*Press pad and iron is optional but there’s lots of ironing!
*6” x 24” ruler and a 15” or 20-1/2” square to use to square your blocks.
*Sewing machine and sewing supplies
