Introduction to Hand Piecing – Louann Morais
Hands-on video demo and private Facebook group. Available beginning Monday, March 28, recorded & available indefinitely; $20
This class is the first in a planned series. This class will show you how to confidently hand piece the Rail Fence Quilt Block. I will demonstrate all of the tips and techniques that I have accumulated over the years to provide you with a relaxing, therapeutic, portable, new hobby I hope you enjoy as much as I do. This block is straight-forward in its construction so that you can concentrate on creating your template, perfecting your stitches, matching points, pressing correctly, etc. No experience is necessary, just a will to learn and a desire to have fun! By making a few of these blocks you can create a beautiful quilt in various designs just by turning the blocks different directions. Or, stay tuned for more classes and more blocks and put them all together to make a sampler quilt!
