Classes


Many of you missed this class last month so I am offering it again. This 8 pointed star is pieced using a Paper Piecing method which does not require sewing through the paper. This eliminates the need to tear away paper after construction! This star is also made without any Y seams which can be a challenge to most quilters. This is an original design of Anelie Beldens that was featured in Quiltmakers Magazine.
