403 Finding a New Direction

Jeri Fickes

Monday - Thursday


Machine : Piecing and Paper-Piecing

Let’s find our right direction making this fun 46” square bargello, with paper-pieced mariner’s compass, wall hanging by Kathleen Andrews of KwiltArt! Skills and methods taught in this class will cover piecing the bargello, paper-piecing and appliqué. During this four-day workshop we will focus on cutting strips and piecing the bargello corners, learning to paper piece and make the small and large mariner’s compass blocks. The mariner’s compass blocks and fabric bias tube are added using a machine appliqué technique. These mariner’s compasses, while looking very complex, only have three pieces per section (eight sections per compass). This is a great place to start to paper piecing. 

Pattern fee: $22.
