Today we had some great demo's of quick & easy ways to piecing.
Pat showed this simple Bow tie block with the 3-D center.
Below the center has been top-stitched down to create a different effect.
Kate B. showed us Anita's arrowhead block
& some fast half square triangles from the Missouri Star Quilt Company's tutorials
Rena B showed ways to make fast & easy blocks, without any fabric waste.
