Double points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite and they eliminate the need of a traditional appliquéd circle in the center! Using quarter circles, half circles, and three-quarter circles adds another interesting bit of character. Learn Susan’s tips for turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool and use tricky piecing to assemble the arcs, circle, and background. Points are three-dimensional and design possibilities are endless! Finished quilt is 27″ x 24″.

Piped bindings add spark and a professional finish to any piece. Every detail of binding and tiny, perfect piping will be covered in class, with step-by-step demos and printed instructions. Machine differences will be addressed so students will be successful with their own machines. Students work on their practice piece to achieve making perfect piping, preparing the quilt, applying piping, applying binding, mitering corners, joining tails, and finishing for a show-quality back. Variations will be on display and discussed. Many major award winners are using this technique to achieve stunning results!

Registration for this class includes lunch on Tuesday.
