The holidays aren’t far off. Gather up your green, red and gold fabrics for this easy-to-create Christmas wreath. Nancy will share her favorite techniques to make paper piecing simple and fun. It’s as easy as sewing on the lines! Your seams will be straighter and your points crisper using these paper piecing techniques. Putting an applique bow on the wreath adds a final decorative touch. Once your top is completed, you’ll be able to free motion quilt your piece using more ideas shared by Nancy. You’ll end up with a gift or home decoration you’ll show off with pride. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details or Nancy has optional fabric kits available for purchase.
