Fussy cutting is very popular right now. We will go over a variety of techniques for fussy cutting your fabric for use in piecing, applique, and especially English Paper Piecing (EPP). We will cover what fabrics work best for fussy cutting and will practice creating a simple EPP sample that you can take home. This would be an excellent class to take if you are planning on taking any of our EPP classes (such as Lucy Boston or Brimfield Meadows & Blooming Star). Fussy cutting will take your blocks to a whole new level.

In fact, a Lucy Boston won best of show at the COQG Quilt Show this summer.
