DAVID SIROTA-STORM AT SEA

Saturday, February 10, 2018 (snow date  Feb 17) 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Class fee $60- supply list provided upon registration

Are you curious about paper piecing? Do you and paper piecing already have a love/hate relationship? Do you love the accuracy you achieve, but hate the process of getting there? Well, this class will change that to a LOVE relationship. We’ll be using the versatile Storm at Sea pattern to learn my “No More Tears”© method of paper piecing. Although we won’t be finishing the entire project in class, you’ll have at least one full block, and the tools you’ll need to finish it at home, in half the time you’d expect from paper piecing. Don’t believe me? You’ll just have to come and see for yourself! In this one day class we’ll take the mystery out of the basics of paper piecing; the “No More Tears”© method; Storm at Sea basics; and Precise block and quilt top construction.

“Up and Away mini is a modern quilt that I designed in early 2016. In June 2016, Up and Away won honorable mention as well as Mark Lipinski’s Judge’s Choice award in the Quilt Alliance “Playing Favorites” Contest.

For this project, I used one of my favorite piecing techniques, foundation paper piecing. I love paper piecing because I can design and execute precise design elements. Foundation paper piecing takes practice, but the technique is rewarding and the results are worth the work. You will use your seam ripper—I still do regularly!”
