Teacher - Heather Peterson

Come and learn some cheater techniques to make easy work of sewing this unique spinning star block. We will learn how to cut with the Creative Grids 60-degree Triangle ruler, how to piece with 60-degree angles using the "valley" technique, how to use the partial seam technique to avoid Y-seams and how to bind odd angles. The project is much easier than it looks, once you learn the techniques! Choose from a topper that can be pieced during class or a table runner.
