Foundation Paper Piecing Class

Foundation paper piecing is a manner of patchwork quilting where strips of fabric are applied to a paper quilt pattern, dissected on paper to accomplish perfect points and intersections of the pattern. Following three easy steps, build a gorgeous traditional pineapple block. The paper is removed when all the blocks are sewn together. This is an art for those who like sharp corners and angles. Some of us are lovingly referred to as OCD, lol.   This is a great class to take in preparation for our event with Legit kits.

Quilt block foundation paper pattern and fold over board will be provided.
Other supplies, if you don’t already have them, are available for purchase at Imagine That & More.
