    We'll sit and sew, chat, laugh, unload, drink and just spend some time with our quilting sisters and brothers. Pop in, pop out...stay as long as you'd like. Think of it as your neighborhood virtual quilting bee.

    Let's add a little artistic layout to the tried and true Card Trick. We'll also talk a bit about the use of ombres as sashing and borders. Looks cool, huh?

    "Flying Beauty" is offered in two sessions (one week apart). Session one is all about the No More Tears Method ©, cutting and piecing. Then, after you've had one week to sew, we'll get back together and focus on sewing the curved pieces into this stunning quilt.

    My way of paper piecing is so much easier than you think. And today you'll see why. You'll see how easy it can be to work with irregular shapes and how quickly you can finish the wall hanging. We'll also learn a unique technique for having accurate star centers.
