Teri Emerson is presenting New York Beauty Blocks:
"Up until about a year ago, I had no idea that I would ever be able to piece detailed quilt blocks like the New York Beauty. I have sewn most of my life, but the complexity seemed impossible. Using paper-piecing techniques has made creating this block a reality for me. I think you can do it too!
I will demonstrate the freezer paper-piecing method I use. The pattern I will demonstrate is a large block that will make sewing the convex and concave curves together even easier. I will also talk about the bias grain of the fabric and how to use it to your advantage and not let the bias take advantage of you. I hope to see you there!"
