Paper Piecing Class - January



Let's start the new year with this beauty! Frisky Vickie Johnson, will guide you through the details of completing your block.  Also, note the discounted class fee... only $10!

Learn paper piecing from the very beginning and build your skills.  We'll learn all sorts of tips, tricks and techniques so you can truly enjoy paper piecing and appreciate the advantages of this method of quilt block construction.

We'll be using "300 Paper Pieced Quilt Blocks" by Carol Doak as our main resource for patterns.  This book comes with a CD drive that enables you to print your own custom pattern templates.

Please bring the following with you to each class session:

  • Three or more 1/4-yard pieces or fat quarters of coordinating fabrics
  • Your working sewing machine with bobbins, power cord, foot pedal, owner's manual and any other accessories that may be needed.
  • A standard 1/4" stitching foot for your machine
  • Optional: an open toe foot or clear open toe foot for your machine, for better visibility
  • A pair of paper-cutting scissors and a pair of fabric-cutting scissors
  • A 6 1/2" square-up ruler
  • An Add-A-Quarter or Add-A-Quarter Plus ruler - 12", other sizes are optional
  • A few straight pins
  • A wooden iron or seam presser
  • A fabric glue stick
  • Rotary cutter and rotary cutting mat at least 12" x 18" to have handy at your work station*
  • Optional: Small ironing pad and iron to have handy at your work station*
  • yellow highlighter (marker)
*A limited number of rotary cutters, mats, ironing pads and irons will be available in the classroom.

We will meet on the first Friday of each month from 10 am - 3 pm for a new block or paper piecing project.  This same class session will be repeated on the third Monday of the month from 10 am - 3 pm.  Each month, you can choose whichever of the two dates that works best for you.

Bring your lunch!
