Karen K. Stone has taken a difficult traditional block and made it easy and fun. The Whig’s Defeat block, a beautiful, graphic pattern with spires and curves may seem too challenging on a first look, but Karen’s innovative method turns the piecing into an enjoyable project with supplies found mostly at the office supply or dollar store!

With just a few pins and some glue, these blocks come together perfectly. Karen’s method of English paper piecing shortens the process while still making the pieces fit snugly. Then, Karen demonstrates how to connect the pieces on a home sewing machine so everything is held together invisibly.

By learning to make only two lovely blocks, you can create your own traditional Whig’s Defeat quilt in a way that is anything but traditional!

For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.
