Club 9 Intro : Beginner Paper-Piecing

Welcome to our first Kinship Quilters VIDEO-TUTORIAL Paper-Piecing group! We are so excited to introduce this for the 2016-2017 season. If you haven’t yet registered, it’s not too late to sign up for this group. Simply cclick here!

You will be hosted via private YouTube videos from our very own Cathy Kropp, an original Kinship Quilters Facebook Quilt-Along Group member and veteran paper-peicing quilter who once trained under Carol Doak. Cathy’s my go-to for all paper-piecing questions as her passion to educate all quilters to the EASY ways to take stress out of quilting by introducing paper-peicing is infectious! Packages of materials to complete your projects arrive monthly, including the paper Cathy prefers in your first packet.

This video below is less than one minute, but it’s our Cathy & your teacher this year as we do the Road to Fortune classic Paper-Piecing quilt block using mostly Kaffe Fassett classic fabrics such as SpotsRoman GlassPaperweightMillefiore, and a few prints by Brandon Mably like Dapple & Rings. These prints will be complemented by a grey Kaffe Fassett hand-woven shot cotton.

Watch this 1 minute Video!

Road to Fortune  is the block we will be making every month. Here’s Cathy’s Welcome Letter to Students below and class overview of all the things you will learn in the coming year through this club.

And here are some of Cathy’s sample blocks for this group using our fabrics as provided in your monthly kit. :

As our group teacher and host, Cathy Kropp will be the main point of contact for tagging your questions in our Kinship Quilters Facebook Group if you should get stuck as we move along. The goal here is block mastery and mastery of the paper-piecing overall concept, basic tools, and technique.

We are also privileged to have another original Kinship Quilters group member trying paper piecing for her first time, yet eventually doing one block ahead to aid in showing us this block done in non-spotty Kaffe Fassett fabrics mixed with designs from Brandon Mably and Philip Jacobs to show us a “scrappy” version of this block in mixes of florals to tonals and bright geometrics.

Linda Kiebler Faulker is a Top Tester with my groups and I’m honored to have her as a different type of group tester / lead in this venture as well. Her work is always impressive and she’s a wonderful fellow quilter. I asked her to introduce herself ; please find her words and picture below so you can place a face with the name.

“Hello, my name is Linda Faulkner. I first learned to quilt and sew from my mother. It wasn’t until I retired in May of 2014 I really jumped back into quilting. I have enjoyed learning this craft and am amazed how much it has changed since being taught by my mother. My love for this craft is running over to my husband for he is creating quilts now also.” 12804579_10154090980043682_1591856913_n.jpg Now, let the fun begin!
