It's Time to get a Grip



Create blocks that include fudge factors so beginners to experts can sew them in a matter of minutes. Make perfect “Flying Geese” blocks by trimming them AFTER you sew the bias edges. Sew “Cat’s in the Cradle” blocks without ever cutting a triangle. Cut charm squares at an angle and trim them after sewing so every block is the exact same size. Bonus? The angled seams never have to match! Then piece a “Scrap Crazy” block in a matter of minutes and see how this is the perfect place to showcase all those decorative stitches on your machine! If time allows, make half-square triangles from 10” squares and turn them into a “Delectable Mountains” block or make a quick and easy piano key border.

Along the way, learn tips and tricks for rotary cutting as well. After all, don’t we all want to reduce cutting time and have more time to sew?

Supplies for class:

Bring a sewing machine with a ¼” foot and neutral thread; a rotary cutter and basic sewing supplies. Since you will only be sewing short seams, sharing a machine with a friend is not a problem.
