All About Paper Piecing
Our paper piecing small group is perfect for any skill level. Beginners will learn tips and tricks from more experienced team members and those with experience will get to share their knowledge.

The 2022 BOM is focused on building a medallion quilt. Participants will choose their own block for the center and design the quilt around it.
