Foundation Paper Piecing Class with Jennifer Ball

Join local designer, Jennifer Ball as she teaches one of her newest designs! Use this versatile 12" x 12" block to make a full quilt, a mini quilt, a pillow, or a table runner.

In this class, students will learn basic foundation paper piecing techniques. This technique is exceptional for accuracy, particular with small, intricate pieces or unusual angles. In addition, Jennifer will show you how certain tools make the technique easy. She will walk you through making the block she designed step by step and how to join multiple blocks together. By the end of the class, students should feel comfortable with the FPP technique and will have a cute little project to take home.
