Introduction to Hand-Piecing Quilt Blocks

For anyone who has discovered the joy of slow sewing and handwork over this strange time, learn the basics of hand-piecing quilt blocks. A perfect use for scraps and a peaceful way to spend some spare time, this beginner’s class will get you started on a handwork adventure of your own. Absolutely no experience of any kind required – if you can thread a needle comfortably (which you will need to do often!), this is the sewing class for you. This is a virtual class.


Recommended Experience Level: Newbie through advanced

– Hand-sewing needles (Clover Black Gold Applique Sharps recommended, though you may prefer a needle with a larger eye if you have trouble threading)
– Four 100% cotton scraps, at least 10” square. (Ish! We’ll be using very small pieces, so please ask if you’re not sure! Almost any cotton scraps will do!)
– Sewing thread (either cotton or polyester) in a neutral color.
– A small clear acrylic quilting ruler of any manageable size. This size is ideal:
But any clear quilting ruler that isn’t too awkward to use with small pieces will be fine. Again, feel free to ask!
– Fine point temporary marking pen, such as a Pilot Frixion Pen
