Join us for Foundation Paper Piecing! FPP is a method of patchwork piecing which uses a removable paper template to stabilize the fabrics used in patchwork quilting. With this method you can achieve a higher level of accuracy, make use of small fabric scraps and create detailed block designs. By the end of this workshop, you’ll be making use of foundation paper patterns to create any classic patchwork design all the way to detailed images/text with ease, accuracy and confidence!
