Wonky Tree Workshop – Paper Foundation Piecing with Carol Piercy

Carol’s quilt

On October 12 twenty-four guild members participated in a workshop presented by local quilting teacher, Carol Piercy.  We got busy with pencils and paper and learned how to make our own paper foundation pattern for a “wonky” tree, which would be the centre design of a small wallhanging.  The project was a nice manageable size, with lots of scope for interesting borders, bindings, and embellishments, and suitable for a Christmas or other seasonal theme.

It was a fun day, with members supporting each other through the ups and downs of making our first blocks, and Carol near at hand patiently demonstrating the technique and providing encouragement when the seam rippers came out.

As always, the array of fabrics and colours decorating our work areas was a delight, as was sharing the day with others who love to sew.  Thanks, Carol, for an enjoyable workshop.
