Paper piecing the Fiesta table runner

It was buzzing at Sew 'n So Quilt Shop last Saturday: my Fiesta Table Runner paper piecing class, Christmas in July, a BOM program and the random Row by Row participants flitting in and out. Lots of quilty activity!

The paper piecing class was lots of fun. There were two true (never done paper piecing) novices and other students with some previous paper piecing experience in class. The beginners both admitted to being a little apprehensive about this technique, but really enjoyed and appreciated the precision that it has to offer once it "clicked" for them.

Everyone was very productive and got at least one block complete—including the curved background pieces. This pattern has lots of possibilities when it comes to the layout so I'm looking forward to seeing what these students do and how their personal preferences come into play.

Cynthia took my Intro to Paper Piecing class last month with the Twisty Star pattern and came back for another dose of PP-ing. She's becoming a paper piecing queen! Look at the great job she did on her Twisty Star top.

Thanks to everyone who came out to my class at Sew 'n So Quilt Shop. You were a great group!
