Pompom Galaxy Curved Piecing Workshop



Have you tried curved piecing? Do you feel intimidated by it? Or you have tried before but you couldn’t have the result you wanted? In this class, I will walk you through how to sew a half circle using the Pompom Galaxy quilt pattern; Cutting the fabric using the templates for the inner half circle and the background, how to match the cut pieces to sew and assemble the block. And not only we will learn how to sew the curves, but also we will use the skinny scraps for this project to make it original. By project completion, you will be confident with sewing curves and at the same time you will use up some of your scraps too!
