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.
