I presented a mini-demo at my local quilt guild last week on English Paper Piecing. There were 3 ten-minute demo’s going on at a time, where everyone rotated through the 3 different types of paper-piecing.
Given the time would be short I prepared a hand-out and sample. The hand-out had simple steps on the front with helpful links and a place for note taking on the back.
I prepared a basted hexie for each student, and provided a fabric square, paper template and a threaded needle. That way they would learn how to baste and be prepared to learn how to join 2 hexies together.
I prepared a board with written instructions and samples for those that are visual learners.
I was able to fit all my hand-outs, supplies and samples in this small bin. A great portable project.
Once I set-up the bin sat nicely inside here, out-of-the-way but easily assessable.
Our time was short but I think most managed to baste a hexie and get started on joining the next piece.
I am almost done piecing this doll quilt and left the last few pieces to show a quilt in process. Now it’s time for me to finish it.
Are there any hexagon quilts in your life?
Encouraging new skills, on the journey, Jackie
