About the event

Paper piecing can be a quilter's challenge. There are so many ways to get it wrong, right? Wrong!  I've taken the mystery out of paper piecing by making it easy to do and much faster and efficient.  But you'll have to be the judge of that.  The actual "Crossed Canoes" block is quite simple.  But the quilt top assembly needs to be precise.  This quilt isn't about the paper piecing, since all of the blocks are identical except for color. The fun part is putting the blocks together.  We'll be using a different method for precision where TWELVE pieces of fabric come together into a single point. So get out your floss and let's go canoeing.

Kit fee is included in the class price


  • Your pre-cut HSTs and your pre-cut strips.  DO NOT subcut before class!
  • Sewing machine, thread and pre-wound bobbin, regular piecing foot and 1/4" foot
  • Pins, and just in case, a seam ripper
  • Pencil or pen
  • A Hand Needle (embroidery, cotton darning) as long as it has a sharp point and a long eye
  • Rotary cutter (with a new blade) and ruler - 6"x12" works fine
  • Invisible Scotch Tape (any brand)
  • Small cutting mat 9" x 12" is fine
  • Highlighter (Pink, green, blue, orange, but NOT yellow)
  • Add-A-Quarter ruler (the longer the better)
  • Paper and  fabric scissors
  • Something in which to collect your scraps
  • Oral B Pro-Health Comfort Plus Floss or any ribbon floss

Using two colors or fabrics highlight the impact of this pattern, and makes learning the pattern much easier. High contrast fabrics really makes your quilt sing.  So let's not go overboard with lots of colors and patterns.  Sometimes less IS more.  Pick two.  Each block measures 5-1/2" square, unfinished  Start with 1-1/2 yards of each fabric.

Sewing Machines for Students will be generously provided by The Sew'N Place
