This class will explore the basics of English Paper Piecing (EPP).  This will involve basting fabric squares to existing paper shapes, then hand sewing them all together.  We will be forming small (but not too small!) hexagons using the paper shapes.  The result will be something suitable for a hot pad, or a mug rug, or the beginning of something much bigger.

About the instructor:

Jan Carter has been sewing since she was a little girl, both by hand and on machine.  She made a few quilts before she really knew what she was doing.  But when she moved to the Gualala area and attended a PPQG meeting out of curiosity, she started down a path that never ends.  Quilting now dominates Jan’s life, and she’s extremely happy about that.  In her spare time, she fondles fabric.
