Foundation paper piecing (FPP) is a quilting technique that uses paper as a foundation to stabilize a quilt block while it is being constructed. In foundation paper piecing, the shapes are printed on paper, and then fabric is sewn together on the paper using the outline as a guide. Once the block is complete, the paper is removed. FPP can be used to create more complex images with smaller shapes than are usually possible. 


Join us in this sewing class to learn the basics of foundation paper piecing. A few different FPP designs will be available for participants to use. In this 3-session series, we will spend the first 2 days learning how to do the paper piecing, and the third class turning the squares into a pillow.

*Skill Level:  Beginner - You’ve taken a class or two and are starting to get comfortable with the basics. You know what a seam allowance is, you’ve sewn a little on your own, but you still need a little help with remembering how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin. These classes usually have little if any homework to complete outside of class time. The prerequisite for any Beginner class is a Sew Basics class, Learn to Sew class, or equivalent. This skill level is not for people who have never used a sewing machine before.
