Giuseppe RIbaudo of Giucy Giuce first designed his Moonstone quilt when he fell in love with English Paper piecing. Obsessed with all things hand sewing, this workshop will teach you the ins and outs of EPP.

You’ll learn all about fabric selection, techniques like fussy cutting and  mirroring to create kaleidoscopic designs, and of course everything you need to know about basting and stitching your blocks. The best part of the workshop is when we all get to sit and stitch together! This is a stress-free and super relaxing class that will make you fall in love with EPP.

Required kit: $8, enough materials for two blocks. This fee is in addition to the workshop fee and is payable to the teacher (not NSQG).

Kits for the full Moonstone quilt will be available for purchase.
