On Saturday we attended a class at Sew Modern taught by Lauren, the owner. It was a paper piecing class using Carolyn Friedlander’s Aerial pattern. Lauren is a great teacher and I learned the basics of paper piecing. I didn’t get TONS done because, as usual for a class, I spent too much time talking and not enough time sewing. That’s perfectly fine with me. We had a good group of students in our class which is very helpful. There’s nothing that ruins a class more than a pain-in-the-butt student (that’s my job).
With Maureen’s help I cut out four simple quilt backs for the quilt baste-athon I’m planning for the long 4th of July weekend. And when I say basic I mean BASIC. I want these suckers done.
