Sew on the Go
Portable and oh-sew-relaxing, you’ll be addicted to hand piecing once you’ve learned all the tips and tricks for success. See how color and value variations can update the classic Cotton Boll block. Sarah will cover her approach to developing and auditioning color variations for a pattern and help students settle on a color scheme for their project. Students will then make a small piece that can be finished as a wall-hanging or a pillow or use the class project as the beginning of a full-size quilt.
