    Have you been wanting to learn how to foundation paper piece? You love the look of foundation pieced patterns but maybe you've put it off learning the technique as it looks too complex, confusing, and you've heard it's really hard.  Then this is the Pattern Club for you! Let me guide you from being a nervous novice to a confident beginner tackling foundation pieced patterns with ease!

    The Beginners Pattern Club runs for six months, covering topics such as choosing your fabrics, how-to foundation piece, cut fabrics to the correct size, deal with angles, and generally streamline the FPP process. By the end of the Club not only will you have gained skills and confidence, you'll have a beautiful quilt top to show off.

    So what's included?

    • a new lesson + a new pattern every fortnight (two weeks)
    • videos to guide you through the process of foundation paper piecing
    • a cheat sheet to keep by your sewing machine for easy reference
    • member-only discount to the Quiet Play pattern shop
    • ten bonus patterns to practice your skills on - that means a total of 20 patterns to build up your pattern collection!
    • handholding (the virtual kind) and guidance to help you learn to love foundation piecing!

    This course teaches you how to foundation paper piece, but it assumes knowledge of basic sewing and quilting skills such as use of a rotary cutter and mat, quarter inch seam, basic quilt assembly - joining blocks together, basting and binding etc.  It's for foundation piecing beginners, not necessarily quilting beginners :)

    Foundation paper piecing is my favourite technique, and I'm here to take the fear out of FPP.  I want to share my love of FPP and inspire you to try it yourself!
    The patterns included are designed specifically for beginners, accompanied with videos, resources, plenty of hints and tips, and an opportunity to ask any questions along the way. We'll be sewing nine fun feature blocks, plus the classic flying geese pattern for the borders. Not to mention bonus patterns to help you build up your FPP pattern stash.


    It's time to learn how to foundation piece!

      I'm Kristy - I'm a mama, maker and designer. While I enjoy quilting, I love to foundation piece. There's just something about those perfect points and crisp angles. I've been designing FPP patterns since 2012 and love to fill them with rainbow and geometric shapes. I also incorporate this love into fabric, as a fabric designer for Riley Blake Designs. I want to share my love of foundation piecing with you, encourage you to make the patterns your own, and to build your skills and share your love of sewing!
