You just learned how to paper piece and want to try out your new skill? Or learned to paper pieced a few years ago but never got around to making anything with it? This class is just right for you! You will be helped to make something you can be proud of with paper piecing. It will consist of (2) sessions with a pre-class. The pre class session you will get help picking out fabric (if needed) and getting organized the Judy Niemeyer way. The first full sew session will begin with an explanation of cutting the pattern out correctly and then starting the piecing. Those that need help with paper piecing, like the flying geese, etc. will receive help in getting started. This class is not for total beginners to paper piecing. You must have a working knowledge of paper piecing or have taken the beginners class taught by Carl. The 2nd sew session will include (if needed) help in putting the sections together, how make perfect centers when putting the sections together, quilting tips, and doing an inside miter corner on the binding.
The Pre-class dates are September 25, 10 to 12 OR 1 to 3. If you can't make it to either of these classes, you can come on the first class day (Saturday, 9/28) from 10 to 1.
