Paper Piecing with David Gilliland


Have you ever wanted to learn paper piecing but had no idea where to begin? Have you looked at paper pieced quilts and thought, "I can't do that?"
Join David Gilleland and learn how easy and fun it is to create beautiful paper pieced blocks and quilts. This class will open up a new quilting arena in your life and give you a solid foundation to explore the wonderful world of paper piecing.

Rather than teach you just 1 block, like most beginning paper piecing classes, David has designed a 40x40 quilt named Star Voyage that will teach you all the basics of paper piecing while you create a beautiful quilt!

Upon completion of the class and the quilt, you will have achieved a foundation of the basic concepts and use of the tools required and be prepared for more advanced projects. If you need more time or assistance, David will remain until 5pm. You are welcome to stay and continue working on any unfinished blocks.
