"Oh-Hi-Oh My Stars!" 

"Curved piecing?

You must be kidding!"

With Barbara Dann of Alleycat Quilters!

Wednesday, November 16th 10:00am - 3:30pm

OR Thursday November 17th 10am - 3:30pm

"O-HI-O My Stars"

10:00am - 12:00pm

     The Ohio Star block is a classic star block that many of us have used in our quilts. Great block but not much pizazz until now! Join Barbara as she takes you on an Ohio Star adventure – from the basic block to the WOW! blocks for your quilts. And everything is made using her favorite tools by Studio 180 Design – good piecing techniques, all blocks are made a little bigger than they need to be, and then trimmed to perfection.  

From this...

To This!

 "Curved Piecing? You Must Be Kidding!"

1:30pm - 3:30pm

     Two years ago that was me! I was NEVER going to do any curved piecing. Too hard, too fussy, and too stressful.

Then I discovered Sew Kind Of Wonderful curved piecing tools and I was hooked. Not too hard – in fact this curved piecing technique is easy (slight learning curve), very forgiving, and I’m having fun piecing curves.
