Basic paper piecing
The "No More Tears"© method
Precise block and quilt top construction (your points will match!)
In this workshop we’ll take the mystery out of:
Your 5 baggies of pre-cut fabric
Sewing machine, thread and bobbin
Pins, and just in case, a seam ripper
Rotary cutter (with a new blade)
You’ll need 5 ½” of each of four “card” fabrics and 1 ¼ yards of a background fabric.These cutting specs assume 40” of usable fabric from selvage to selvage, or WOF (width of fabric). If you prefer to use fat quarters, you will need 2 of each, or 8 in total.
From each of your four “card” fabrics cut:
Two 2 ¾” strips.
From these strips, cut nine 2 ¾” x 5” rectangles and nine 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” squares.
Then put each of your cut “card” fabrics into a baggie.
From your 1 ¼ yards of background fabric cut:
Four 5” strips.
From these strips cut twenty seven 5”x5” squares.
Cut the squares twice diagonally into quarter-square triangles.
Put your triangles in a separate baggie.
Then cut eight 2 ½” strips for the sashing and border. Put them the baggie with the triangles.
Bring some extra fabric to class…just in case😊
