Foundation Paper Piecing - Tree, Tree, Gnome!



Thursday December 13th, 6-9pm

Join Kaye as we dive into a fun, scrap-busting patchwork technique: Foundation Paper Piecing! Foundation Paper Piecing (or FPP for short) is a patchwork technique which uses paper templates to sew precise, intricately shaped blocks with a sewing machine. Commonly used in quilts, FPP can also be transformed into wall hangings, project bags, or in our case, a super cute holiday table runner.

Students will learn how to paper piece while tackling three fun blocks: a whole tree, pieced tree, and a gnome. Combine the blocks together with some sashing, a border, and bit of quilting, et voila! You have a fun table runner for holiday feasts and get-togethers. Our table runner pattern finishes at 13.5 x 32", each individual block measuring 7.5 x 9" (8 x 9.5 unfinished).
