Foundation piecing (often called paper piecing) is an old technique that has
become very popular again. If you have tried it and think you don't like it
or can't do it, you need to take this class - I will change your mind! If
you can sew on a straight line and count to 10, then you CAN foundation
piece successfully. This method guarantees a perfect block every time and it
is the answer for blocks with many seams like Log Cabin, and more complex
blocks like Mariners Compass or New York Beauty.
You’ll spend the morning learning the “how to’s” by making three
small blocks, progressing from easy to more challenging. Then, in the
afternoon, you will learn how to put blocks together, deal with angled
pieces and directional fabrics, draw your own blocks for foundation piecing,
and more. We'll also look at string piecing, another form of f.p. It
promises to be a fun-filled day and you will pick up many helpful tips and
tricks. This is a technique that EVERY quilter should know - come and add it
to your skill set!
