Beth: a no-tear- out freezer paper piecing and Sue: a strip piecing project using a jelly roll or pre cut strips - maybe even strips from your stash. Beth Kelly: New York Beauty: No-tear-out Freezer Paper Piecing New York Beauty blocks are attention getters and labors of love. All those perfect points. Paper piecing. Tearing out all that paper. Time and a toll on the hands. But it doesn’t have to be, if you use freezer paper piecing and the No-tear-out method instead. The freezer paper is your reusable template and there’s no need to reduce the stitch length on your machine. Learn this method while making the four New York Beauty blocks used as the center medallion in the example. Each block finishes at 8” square. Learn how to design your own freezer paper pieced blocks to complement the center medallion. A $4.00 materials fee, payable to the instructor, provides you with a set of pre-printed freezer paper sheets for all the arcs in the four blocks. Supply List Sue Donovan: Jelly roll and fat quarter friendly, and strip pieced. Finished size 55” x 6 1.” Made with equal number of 4 values, Dark, Medium Dark, Medium Light, and Light, this can also be totally scrappy, a stash buster! Check the supply list for all the details. Starting with strips cut and sorted by values, you can get right to work and go home with a lot of the quilt top completed. Supply List
