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?
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 :)
Payment is a one off payment for the entire course. Pay once then access the course as many times as you like. You can download and keep the patterns forever. I can't guarantee lifetime access to the videos, but you can access them for as long as they're available on the learning platform (and I plan for that to be a good long time, just can't say lifetime ;) ).
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.
As soon as you join, you can access learning resources to get you started on your foundation piecing journey! Work through it at your own pace - allowing time to watch the video, practice piecing and learn that lesson's skill before moving onto the next lesson.
We'll then start learning how to foundation piece with our flying geese border, before moving onto the nine feature blocks (shown below). Each is designed to build your skills before we move onto the next block. I'll guide you through how to put the blocks together to finish your quilt.
So whatcha waiting for?
It's time to learn how to foundation piece and create something beautiful!
