Hattiesburg hosted the third location of the 2011 MQA Educational Seminar with Deb Karasik teaching her paper piecing techniques. Deb is from San Francisco, California, and is the author (with Janet Mednick) of Quilt Mavens Perfect Paper Piecing and of Quilts with Attitude, both published by AQS.
Deb's quilts and patterns feature sharp points and spikes, and she stressed the importance of not cutting off those points when joining to the next piece. She showed tips on getting smooth curves without cutting off points. She had perfected her binding methods by incorporating Sharon Schamber's glue technique, and she demonstrated this for the students.
