Foundation paper pieced quilts-2012


Foundation Piecing is one of the full proof methods of obtaining very accurate pieced blocks.

Paper or fabric foundation pieces are used as foundations, which provide stability to all kinds of fabric.

To paper piece, trace the pattern or copy using a copy machine.

Ordinary printer paper can be used(If it is difficult to get the special paper) but better results can be obtained by using tracing paper.

Place a piece of fabric larger than the lined space on the unlined side of fabric in no1 position

Place piece 2 right sides together with piece 1 pin on seam line.

Stitch along the line on the lined side of the fabric.

Trim to ¼-inch seam allowance and finger press the piece flat on the backside.

The design will automatically form in the backside of the printed copy.
