302-22: 302-22 Turning Up Pumpkins - Marianne Ballash

Class Description:  This fun project is perfect for a newer quilter.  It’s great for practicing the basics and is a fantastic stash-buster quilt.  Master half square triangles and quarter square triangles using Michelle Renee Hiatt’s precise step-by-step instructions and a Tucker Trimmer III. Repeating one technique throughout the quilt helps you quickly master the process and create a fun and fabulous design.   We will learn how to achieve accurate ¼” seams and trim blocks to the perfect size with precise corners.  Bring 10-11 fat quarters from your stash or use this as an excuse to buy some fun new fabric.  A kit will also be available if desired.   If you’d like, bring a few fabrics to learn the technique and make a smaller project.  Get inspired to learn more precision piecing techniques.  Leave with lots more project ideas.  This will be sew much fun!
