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 other ways to 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 handwork.

Seven Sisters Simplified: No Y-Seams, #37514

Learn to cut and sew this classic block with no set-in seams. The traditional Seven Sisters is a well-loved, but seldom made, quilt pattern because traditionally, every seam is a Y-seam. With Marti’s method you replace the six diamonds in each of the seven stars with one large and three small equilateral triangles. Every seam is sewn edge-to-edge. You’ll be amazed by how easy this traditional beauty can be!
