 Elephant Abstractions / Giraffe Abstraction Quilt Workshop

All meals and snacks provided.

Supply List


Add a quarter inch ruler (If you don’t have no worries we have in studio)

Scoring tool (If you don’t have no worries we have in studio)

Freezer paper  ( can be purchased at your local grocery store)

2 meters of background fabric

Fabric strips that are at least 6 inches wide. Fat quarters work & lots of colors the more the merrier.

Things to note , the pattern calls for way to much fabric !   Fat quarters or six inch strips will work fine in a dozen or more  colors. The scraper the better. Shop in your stash  You will need two meters for the background fabric.

Sewing machines, irons, cutting mats and rotor cutters are provided. So you just need to bring yourself & Fabric.


We will be doing paperless paper piecing so if possible trace the entire pattern onto freezer paper. Assign a number for the colors so you know what color to use. Label all pieces. This will take a few hours to do but is well worth the time and saves distorting your pieces.

Class size – 4 quilters at our location Loopy D’s 79 Sunhurst Cres S.E. Calgary
