Foundation Paper Piecing with Merran Fryer - Saturday 17th April

These are the joys of paper piecing. Odd shapes and tricky angles are so much easier to achieve using paper as a foundation. But, foundation paper piecing (or FPP) has a bad rep, just the thought or FPP puts some people off so let’s start with something straightforward. In this class you’ll learn you two methods of achieving those sharp angles without the need to match points and even better, one of those methods doesn’t require tearing papers out when you’re finished. 

You will learn the pattern "Sisterhood" Designed by Canadian quilter Berene Campbell (@happysewlucky) this block represents the universal sisterhood that exists between us across the globe. In 2019 Berene organised the Sisterhood Swap to raise funds for a charity that supports women that are living in poverty or at-risk situations. Groups of women all over the world swapped blocks with their sisters to form the circle. 

The pattern includes two sizes – a 12” and a 16” block made up of 8 individual blocks (4 and 4 mirror image) and is ideal for scrappy quilters 

Please note, there are no refunds on workshops if you are unable to attend.
