Congratulations to Elizabeth Dackson–a wonderfully creative modern quilter! Elizabeth has a new class on Craftsy on Foundation Paper Piecing.
As modern quilters create more intricate and complex block designs, paper piecing by machine is the way to go. Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher–she spoke at the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild a few months ago and brought along some of her fabulous quilts.
Her blog is HERE. She also has patterns available on her site.
And, be sure to check out her book–if you order from her site, you can get a signed copy– Click on the title— Becoming A Confident Quilter.
