Shamrock Picture Piecing w/ Joyce James
Presented by CQG member, Joyce James.
Joyce will demonstrate a unique technique, Cynthia England’s “Picture Piecing”, for precise quilting using freezer paper. Joyce created her own original shamrock pattern for our workshop. This technique results in a precise paper pieced look but it’s so much better! No paper to pick out. No fabric waste - cut out exactly what you need. The pattern pieces can be reused. Use a regular stitch length. If you don't sew it perfectly, don't rip it out! You can either sew closer or move the pattern piece. You are going to LOVE this technique.
The freezer paper shamrock pattern for 1 block will be provided for the workshop. A copy of the pattern will also be provided for your use beyond the workshop. The shamrock block trims to 8 1/2 inches square. Then add border(s) of your choice to create a finished piece.
Materials and supplies needed for one shamrock block, top only:
