Bright & Happy Patchwork Cards – Free Class

Are you ready to take a class on paper piecing with me? Let’s spend some time together creating patchwork card fronts using 3″ squares of patterned paper! You will learn how to cut up Designer Series Paper into squares, rectangles, and triangles then put them together into patchwork designs perfectly sized for card fronts! This tutorial makes 10 notecard-sized card fronts and 5 square card fronts (bonus cards).

10 Bright & Happy Patchwork Notecards
5 Bright & Happy Patchwork Bonus Cards

I recommend that you use my video tutorial and create along with me step-by-step. You can collect and prepare your supplies ahead of time, then follow along with me as we put the cards together. Everything you need to know for this class is found in the PDF and in the video tutorial.

Grab your supplies, a snack & beverage, and your creative hat and join me!

  1. Robin, your patchwork cards are truly a labor of love! I appreciated receiving the pre-cut paper pad sampler, and evite to join you and other crafters. Thank you for inspiring and nurturing this community! ☮️🤩🥰💜✨🙏🏾

    1. Thank you, Gwen! I love to reward my customers each month with different items they can use and learn from. It was my supreme pleasure to have the opportunity to get to know you face to face!

  2. I LOVE these cards. The color combinations and punched shaped just make for such happiness. Is there any way to size the cutting to make A4 size cards instead of note cards?

    1. Hi Donna! I have not had a moment to try and adjust the square size to make the designs perfectly fit A4 size. But it has to be possible, right?

  3. So happy I found you. Bright and happy is making me crazy and I love it! For some reason, the page of cutting instructions (template)did not print when I downloaded the pages. I tried 3 times. Got all the other pages. Is there any way you could email me that very important page? I would be forever grateful and will be glad to pay you for it. I am having to keep going to the video. I have been in a lull for awhile and feel like I am getting my “mojo” back with this project…want to keep going! Thank you!

  4. Robin, these cards are awesome! Often, I don’t really like the designs of the color family DSP packs, but with your wonderful idea, they’ll POP. I admire your boundless creativity and your willingness to share, explaining everything in detail so even a dunce like me can make something special. I don’t need the PDF: I need to see how a card is made. So I just saved your video! Thank you SO very much!
