Learn Quilt Maven Dave's paper piecing methods and how to deal with lots of pieces of fabric coming together in one place!

"Paper piecing can be a quilter's challenge. There are so many ways to get it wrong, right?

Wrong! I've taken the mystery out of paper piecing by making it easy to do and much faster and efficient. But you'll have to be the judge of that.

The actual "Crossed Canoes" block is quite simple. But the quilt top assembly needs to be precise. This quilt isn't about the paper piecing, since all of the blocks are identical except for color.

The fun part is putting the blocks together. We'll be using a different method for precision where TWELVE pieces of fabric come together into a single point.

So get out your floss and let's go canoeing."
