On Saturday I attended a Workshop
provided by our Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild
Award Winning Quilter
and her daughter Christy Fincher
I learned to make a
New York Beauty block
Have you ever tried this technique?
It's a little bit like paper piecing
except you use a glue method
rather than sewing on paper.
The class was full, and it was so nice to have
both Christy and Sharon moving between stations
to help us individually.
We all worked away
Piec by Piec
I always love these kind of workshops
where you see the same block
come alive in various fabrics.
My favorite block was Danni's.
Sharon showed us a method where
you can also add another insert
in the arched sections.
I still have some sections to sew together.
Of course, I had to use (Kaffe) Triangles
for my back ground fabric :)
The Piec-lique method is quite popular with many quilters.
Bari Ackerman (Bari J.)
is a member of our guild
and was in the midst of making a Double Wedding Ring
using Sharon's technique.

Sharon brought a few of her quilts
from the book.
Showing her amazing quilting
that she does on a domestic machine.
I learned so much from this class
and am so happy I had the opportunity
to learn from one of the best
in the Industry.
