Paper Piecing Class

A while ago I asked you guys what you wanted to see on my blog. One of the most popular requests was that I explain how I paper piece. The problem with this is that my methodology varies quite a lot depending on the block that I am piecing.

Sometimes I am slap-dash and just choose a piece of fabric that is about the right size, or even far too large. I then use any off-cuts that are produced later on in the block.

Other times (especially where there are awkward angles and difficult shapes) I do it more precisely and precut my fabric pieces using this technique. Other times I adapt my technique again and use a sort of halfway house method.

This makes it really difficult for me to describe "my method"  as it really depends on how easy or difficult the block is to piece!

The good news is that if you are in Christchurch I can teach you! Applications are now open for a paper piecing class taught at the Make Cafe on Tuesday 19th March from7:30pm- 9:30pm. In the class we will piece my concentric hearts block.

Please me kind, it will be my first time teaching and I'm a bit scared about it. If it goes well, then I'll possibly take what I've learnt from teaching the class and turn it into a tutorial on here- would be of interest to anyone?
