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.
