Overview

One of the biggest names in quilting comes to Craftsy! Quilter, author and teacher Kaye England brings her expertise in traditional quilting to this information-packed online Craftsy class.

Just like Kaye's in-person workshops, you'll be inspired, you'll learn a ton, and you'll have a lot of fun - all without leaving your home!gIn Re-Piecing the Past, you'll learn foundational piecing techniques as you work through 12 included block patterns, each with its own story to tell - from Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" to "Battle Cry of Freedom," a song so popular it was sung on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
