Join Team Tobisch and make a Muskrat Paw block while learning about new tools and techniques for cutting, piecing and pressing that effortlessly lead to precision. The class begins with Bernie showing you how to turn your sewing machine into a precision piecing instrument. Next Shelley will teach you how to prepare your fabric including how to press and cut with accuracy to minimize fraying and distortion when handling. With these newfound skills you will learn how to cut and sew easy and accurate half-square triangles. Throughout the class you will be guided, step by step, through the entire process of cutting, piecing, pressing, nesting and fanning seams while making a Muskrat Paw block. In addition, you will learn how to work with the Easy Press Pen and Easy Press Solution to create flat seams which easily leads to improved accuracy. You will also learn how to work with a Quilt Block Builder to help keep your patchwork units in order while piecing. This class is designed for you if you wish to improve upon your accuracy whether a beginner or experienced quiltmaker.
