Do you want to learn how to sew no-pin curves and learn how to use this skill in an exciting new way? In this class we get our heads around the twice-cut (or sometimes trice-cut) Drunkard’s Path block and the fun and unlimited ways of using this technique. We will sew blocks from the Hole Punch Ribbon and Hole Punch Hoop Quilts but also look at how you can design your own twice-cut Drunkard’s Path block.
The class is suitable for anyone with a few machine-quilting (or garment-making) projects under their belt but it’s also a great way for the experienced sewer to widen their repertoire and push themselves creatively.
Join Jenny Haynes of Papper Sax Sten for an online zoom workshop on August 22, 9:00- 2:00 EST
