Learn how to use freezer paper to make perfect triangles and diamond shapes with Tara Faughnan
Time & Location
Oct 20, 2018, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Hello Stitch Studio, 1708 University Ave, Berkeley, CA 94703, USA
About the Event
Learn how to create freezer paper foundations for precision piecing. This technique is similar to paper piecing but foundations are reusable and there is no tearing out bits of paper afterwards! We will use the Diamonds quilt to learn the technique, and we will also discuss how to apply it to many other patterns. Additionally, we will look at the use of value and color to create visually complex quilts from the repetition of a simple block.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner and up
Supplies: A supply list will be emailed upon registration. Tara will have the Diamonds Quilt Pattern available separately if you wish to purchase it.
