Portable and oh-sew-relaxing, you’ll be addicted to hand piecing once you’ve learned all the tips and tricks for success. Learn how to prepare fabric and then accurately transfer shapes to it, then experiment with how color and value variations can update the classic Cotton Boll block. Sarah will cover her approach to developing and auditioning color variations for a pattern and help students settle on a color scheme for their projects. Students will then stitch a small piece that can be finished as a wallhanging or a pillow, or even expanded to create a throw-size quilt.
