Beginner Foundation Paper Piecing workshop with Berene Campbell

Have you always wanted to learn how to do foundation paper-piecing but been too afraid to try? Or tried, hit the wall and never tried again? Or maybe it’s just been a while and you’re feeling rusty. Well then this is the workshop for you! It’s a very clever technique that opens up a whole new world of patterns to make. Let’s piece some LOVE and learn to LOVE to paper-piece.

Berene Campbell is a pattern designer that specializes in foundation paper-piecing patterns over at www.happysewlucky.com. She uses paper-piecing as a way to destress. (Crazy but true!) Although many people are scared of trying it, she believes that  once you nail the technique, it is amazingly calming.

In this workshop you will be working on Berene’s “Love Heart Tattoo” block.
You will learn the following:
• Picking fabrics for paper-piecing
• Materials and equipment options
• Setting up your workspace
• How to foundation paper-piece using the Add-a-Quarter ruler technique
• Pre-cutting for paper-piecing
• How to stitch sections with Y-seams like a boss!
About the pattern:
The finished size without borders is 16” wide x 10” high. It can be used for a mini quilt, as a centre block for a medallion, makes a great pillow, or if you really do fall in love with paper-piecing it could be your start of the whole tattoo quilt pattern.
