Show 2611: Piecing Masterclass 1

Featuring: Sally Collins / Gyleen Fitzgerald / Jacquie Gering / Ann Harwell / Victoria Findlay Wolfe

Posts On: May 17, 2020


For our first Masterclass, TQS brings you the solutions to your piecing challenges. Sally Collins’ techniques will definitely improve your straight sewing and pressing issues, while Gyleen Fitzgerald makes sewing a Butterfly seam a breeze.

Then, Jacquie Gering and Victoria Findlay Wolfe show how to master improvisational blocks and curves. If piecing unusual shapes in paper piecing causes you frustration, Ann Harwell’s pinning method is sure to help. And, matchstick piecing has never been easier when you see Alex’s technique.

I cannot find these classes when I log into You Tube to watch, and all my links in emails only play the 1+minute trailers. How do I find the actual classes? I’ve searched by class #2611 and I still only get the trailers. I am a member.

When I first saw Jacquie Gering's "Weighted Log Cabin Block, it looked like a Frank Lloyd Wright house! I LOVE it!!!

I'm excited to watch this! Also, am following the during the week class on sew-along. I will use scraps to complete the quilt. Thank you Alex and Tim. I'm happy that I re-discovered The Quilt Show.

Wow! I am so happy I had the wrong time for Alex's Live Raw Edge Piecing video (we are on EST and so I will look for that video at 1 pm our time...not 10 am! Oops!) So, I decided to watch a Master Class. I already felt like I was a "master" piecer but ... watching Sally Collins' amazing tips....I learned I have a lot more to indeed master. I now feel like I can try the new techniques and truly become a better quilter. Thanks, Ricky, Alex, Sally and all who enable us to improve our skills.

I have been quilting for over 30 years and I love learning new techniques. I sure did today from each and every one on your show. I laughed out loud when Sally Collins showed how to properly press a seam so it doesn’t pop up again. OH, how many times I have had to repress. Now I won’t have to spend extra time pressing. Thank you for putting this together for us.

So good to see Sally Collins in the beginning. She truly is the queen of precision :). I took a class from her in the 1990's and learned about properly piecing the quarter inch at the beginning and the end when chain piecing (or really any piecing). Some skills are timeless.

There were also a few people I had not seen so thank you for showcasing them.
