Monthly Sampler Quilt Block Series - June



Each month practice a different technique for making and quilting a block. Each quilted block will finish 12” square. Great opportunity for both beginner and non-beginner quilters to learn different quilt piecing techniques and have some fun and camaraderie doing it. This is not a project class but bonus instructions will be provided for how to join blocks together to make larger projects. For example, a quilted block can be made into a placemat or a tote bag; or several blocks can be put together to make a table runner, or a small quilt. Blocks can be duplicated and made into a larger quilt. Lots of possibilities.

This month's block, the Dresden Plate, is paper pieced and then appliqued to a background using a turned-edge, easy-to-do, technique.  Learn to paper piece without piercing the paper, a technique that can be used for lots of other paper pieced patterns.  Never have to tediously and carefully tear away all of that paper from the backside of the quilt!
