This is NOT your grandmother’s English paper piecing. Learn how to piece by hand and implement clever ways to combine hand and machine piecing for great carry-along projects. Start by rotary cutting hexagons (triangles and diamonds, too, if they are needed in your chosen layout) with acrylic templates, then hand-piece. While you enjoy the stitching, Marti will share ways to machine-piece some of the sections and join them faster by hand than machine. Learn swirl pressing; it is so pretty you will never want to cover it with batting and backing! This is a must-see course for lovers of hand work.

The Starry Path is a sleek, dramatic, classic quilt block. With only 16 pieces per block and no set-in seams, it is not hard to make, however, the unusual triangles make it a challenge to cut without acrylic tools. Marti will teach you the secret to marking beautiful Starry Path blocks in this fun evening workshop. Plan to cut and make three matching 12″ stars for the table runner. Marti will also demonstrate how to use the multi-size tools to cut 6″ and 9″ blocks. The class includes cutting and construction techniques for the Zig-Zag Starry Path quilt shown.
