Her assistant Tara was on hand to help.
I've "known" Penny for years through blogging and Flickr and have always been so impressed by the paper pieced blocks she creates. Over the past couple of years, I've been able to figure out how to paper piece to a degree and can even design my own blocks. But for some reason using freezer paper always confused me. I'm a visual learner, so I was really excited to sign up for this workshop.
Well, Penny made it easy. Easy to make something from a pattern...
... and easy to sew y-seams. Yes, Y-SEAMS. This took like 5 minutes.
We didn't have time to get to curved seams, but I've got Penny's presentation on a CD that is sure to unlock any mysteries.
Don't the blocks all together from the class look amazing?
Penny and Tara were so sweet. I don't think they make them nicer. It was fun learning from them in the workshop AND hanging out with them outside the conference. Thanks ladies! xoxo
