Join this 2 session class to fine tune your ‘traditional’ piecing skills, and make this adorable Sparrow block. We will learn several different quick piecing techniques to add to your quilting tool box: half-square triangles, the “stitch-and flip” method and practice an accurate 1/4” seam allowance. During class, we will cut and assemble left and right facing blocks and discuss the sashing and borders so you will be able to finish the project in your own time. Finished block dimensions: 9.5” x 15.25”
