Many of you have been asking for a paper piecing class, and this dynamic quilt is a great one on which Fireworksto learn paper piecing. The angles look complicated, but using a paper foundation is the key to success! Paper piecing produces a fantastic finished piece where all the angles are PERFECT. Some pre cutting is preferred, so we can jump right in and get started with creating our blocks.

One of the more difficult parts of making a quilt is the actual quilting, the sewing together of the three Machine Quilting for Beginnerslayers. While hiring a longarm quilter to finish your project for you is nice, sometimes we want to do it ourselves. This class gives you a lot of the “how-to’s” to make your job easier to accomplish. There are hints about how to prepare, marking tools and methods, holding, folding, and stitching that you may not know but can make your job less of a hassle. We provide a practice piece for you to play with, and by the time you are done with your exercises, you will be ready to successfully machine quilt your own projects on your own home machine.
