Beginning Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP)

Learn to foundation paper piece using the beginner level pattern, Book Nerd, by Angela Pingel. This pattern is great for learning to paper piece because you will be making 20 blocks and the repetitive process will be helpful in cementing that tricky backward thinking you need for it to make sense.

Don't be scared, though! Kim Andersen, the instructor is very friendly and patient and loves to teach paper piecing. She will be there to walk with you through all 20 blocks and by the end of the classes, you will have a very special quilt for that book nerd in your life.

This session Kim will be focusing on walking you through the FPP process using the mini version of the block as a standard. She will also be providing a book cover pattern that uses a single full sized block. 
You may choose to make either the original quilt size of 55"x66" with 11" blocks or the smaller version of 27"x33" with 5 1/2" blocks. They both have 20 blocks.

The first class will involve choosing fat quarters for your books. In that first class, we will also learn about fussy cutting and a little bit about color theory too. We'll plan the quilt. learn about FPP, and begin the blocks. You definitely want all your supplies for this day because you will actually be starting on your quilt.

In the second session, we'll continue working on the blocks. In the third session, we'll learn about sashing and finishing your quilt.
