The Niemeyer Club focuses on foundation paper piecing patterns by celebrated designer Judy Niemeyer (www.quiltworx.com). Vintage Rose is the 4th ‘Technique’ that brings together a wide-range of techniques for foundation paper piecing. Vintage Rose is divided into 6 sections. The sections start in the centre, working outwards toward the pieced border.
This class is for those new to paper piecing and those wanting to learn more. The pattern results in a stunning quilt. The instructor, Michele, is a Certified Instructor with Quiltworx. Michele has completed 35 various patterns from Quiltworx.
Note: Previous foundation (paper) piecing experience is NOT a requirement.
During each of the 5 club sessions, Michele will present a construction element and/or demonstrate a technique pertinent to this sessions’ projects. The balance of the time will be spent sewing.
