Hand Piecing

Hand Piecing is a great way to piece small blocks, tricky curves, or just because you want a portable project. We have a number of different patterns that we use this method of hand piecing rather than using paper pieces and find it much gentler on your hands. Our Star a Day Challenge, the Lucy Boston Quilt, Hexagons and more -- did you know they can be done easily WITHOUT paper piecing or a machine? We will learn several tricks to make hand piecing accurate and the proper way to start and finish seams.
