   Friends, Fabric and Fun!
   Where your quilt dreams come true

Autumn Pines

Sharon Ralph, a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor will teach you how to paper piece using the Autumn Pines pattern.  Two sewing techniques referred to as foundation paper piecing and foundation strip piecing are used to assemble this project.  General techniques include sewing pieces of fabric to a foundation paper which allow for perfect floating points, smart corners eliminate dog ears and help to make a perfect match, registration points are used to help seams match up accurately, curved seams, and cutting and stacking techniques incorporate efficiency. This pattern will give you a gorgeous wall hanging or a 46” X 46” accent quilt.

What you can expect to learn in the class:
Judy’s technique for cutting apart the foundation papers
A traditional approach to foundation paper piecing and curved piecing.
Judy’s process to speed up the sewing process by using Template Layout Sheets for cutting out the fabric.
