David Sirota

When I learned to quilt in the mid 90’s I was immediately drawn to paper piecing. I thought it was so cool because of the intricate and accurate results you can get. But I hated the process.


So, I started thinking about how to make paper piecing simpler and faster. And I’m proud to say that in 2004, I figured it out.


My "Sirota No More Tears Paper Piecing” © Method is easier to understand and takes half the time of the old way of paper piecing. Paper piecing is now accurate, fun, easier and much quicker. And you use the same piece of paper over and over.


I’m part of the Mancuso Show Management faculty and have been a featured guest on The Quilt Show. Also, several of the quilts created by students in workshops have gone on to win top prizes in competitions. Maybe yours will be next.
