Upcoming Workshop - Paper Pieced Paradise

My Paper Piecing Paradise workshop at the Academy of Quilting starts on January 30th.
Paper piecing, foundation piecing, sew and flip, whatever you call this method, using it you will give you perfect blocks and no more chopped off points!
In this workshop you will learn how to:
  • download a foundation piecing design from the Internet
  • choose a foundation material
  • set up your machine for foundation piecing
  • use Add-a-Quarter™ rulers when foundation piecing
  • foundation piece nine different blocks including multi-part blocks
  • make multiples of a foundation
  • pre-cut shapes to speed up foundation piecing
  • make strips of Flying Geese for borders
  • finish your wall hanging 

Even traditional blocks can be pieced this way; it is not just for small blocks or unusual blocks with sharp points. You can make the layout as shown above or rearrange the blocks to create a sampler or a completely different scene. 

This is a paper piecing starter class, suitable for beginners but you will learn some new tips even if you've done paper piecing before.

There are 4 lessons, one posted each week, and the classroom stays open until March 16 - plenty of time for you to work on the lessons. You can ask questions in the Classroom and you'll have my personal attention throughout the class.

Class tuition is $40.00. Register TODAY.
