Have you ever admired a quilt with lots of pointy stars or flowers…and all the points matched perfectly? The quilt was probably paper pieced. This class will teach the basics of this skill. Once you learn, you’ll be addicted! Sewing the blocks is easy. The hardest part is getting organized and placing the first piece exactly where it belongs. This class will cover both organizing for success and sewing the blocks.
