Learn to design quilts with extreme angles, sharp points, precision piecing, easy cutting, one-of-a-kind images, and more. You’ll learn how to create foundations for everything from traditional blocks to pictorial quilts. During class, we'll move from designing foundations for simple blocks to more complex pictorial quilts from photos. You'll meet and make friends with the Paper Police as you hone skills toward creating designs possible only with foundation piecing. You'll learn to determine the number of foundations needed, number foundations for piecing order, label foundations for piecing ease, make templates for cutting patches for on-grain piecing and efficient use of fabric, and more. You'll leave this technique class with foundations for one or more blocks and a design for a block or small quilt that is uniquely yours to paper piecedanajonesquilts.com
