About the Event

Foundation piecing is a truly American technique of quilt-making and artist Julia McLeod will show you step-by-step how to make this classic, New York Beauty block.  Using muslin as a base, your block will have added stability and accuracy. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to make beautifully pieced blocks once you have learned this technique!

In this 3-hour class, we will make one New York Beauty block, meaning one quarter circle. The panel provided for this class yields 12 blocks that make up three full circles.

You'll be provided with:

  • One panel of Benartex's Foundation by the Yard which gives you 3 finished circles. (If you'd like to order more panels, just let us know in the comments and we'll send an invoice for the additional fee.)
  • A supply list of suggested fabrics, colors and cutting instructions
  • A pdf document of step by step directions to complete the block

This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to class participants for 2 weeks following the lesson.

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You have a few projects under your belt. You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics. This class is for the patient, confident quilter. The block is not technically difficult but does take a little time and attention to detail.

About the instructor:
