We've got a really exciting *BRAND NEW* class for you here!

In this one day class you will learn the basics of Foundation Paper Piecing: a fun and eye-catching patchwork technique that can be used to create intricate and unusual designs that may not be possible with other techniques, as well as way of ensuring really sharp and accurate points for any kind of pieced quilt block. Using a design printed on to paper, fabric is stitched through the paper which is gradually added to with a fold and flip method, creating the design pattern.

In the class you will firstly try a simple design, to practice your skills before moving on and creating this funky cactus design, which would make a panel for a great tote bag, pouch or perhaps a cushion panel.

Learning Outcomes:

Foundation Paper Piecing
Flip and Fold Method

This is an intermediate class so some experience of quilting is ideal!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Basics of Foundation Paper Piecing! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
