Paper Piecing with Dudley Shugart

Have you found a paper pieced quilt pattern or some paper pieced blocks you would like to make? Unsure of how to paper piece? Need some tips to get started? Join us on introductory class! Everyone will begin class by making the same paper pieced block to learn, or review, the technique. After the review, you may start on any paper pieced project you wish. If you do not have one in mind. the instructor will have patterns to choose from. Books available at Artistic Artifacts like Free Spirit Block Party, Adventures in Paper Piecing and Design by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp and My Kinda Town by Laura Heine are good jumping off points if you have not previously found a paper pieced pattern that you have wanted to take on as a project. At the end of class you should have the confidence to paper piece your own quilt top to completion!
