Intro to English Paper Piecing with the Wicked Hex Mini

May 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm | $69

Sometimes it’s good to slow things down and do a little hand-sewing. It’s good for your body and mind. This workshop is an intro to English paper piecing using the Wicked Hex mini quilt pattern. The benefit of trying out this technique with a mini is that you see the final result more quickly. We’ll review fussy-cutting techniques, different methods for basting, how to stitch the pieces together and different ways to procure shapes. The Wicked Hex paper pieces and pattern will be provided for each student.

Teacher: Libs Elliott of www.libselliott.com
