How can "sewing upside down" turn out such beautiful blocks?  And with perfect points? The trick is using foundation piecing! Make a pillow/cushion cover, a wall hanging, or a quilt, depending on how many 8" blocks you make.  Mix solids, stripes, figures, and be amazed at the results.

Skill level: Advanced Beginner
Fee: $50
Instructor: LaVaughn Bye
