TUTORIAL | Foundation Paper Piecing

GET THE PATTERN: Paper-Pieced Flying Geese Pattern

The Easter Long Weekend came as blessing in disguise for me.

I was able to use the time to focus on getting my Foundation Paper Piecing tutorial edited and uploaded for you!

Initially I was going to demonstrate the technique using a Wonky Log Cabin pattern that I had drawn up, but decided it was possibly a little bit too complicated and fiddly for a ‘beginners’ tutorial.

So in the end, I drew up a Flying Geese type pattern that seemed a lot more quick and simple.

The method I use to tackle Foundation Paper Piecing is the way I was initially taught and feel is the most easiest, quickest and neatest way to do it.

However, there are plenty of other ways Foundation Paper Piecing can be done. These preference will (and do!) vary from quilter to quilter!

Is your method different from mine?

Let me know how you do it!

Enjoy watching..

and

Happy Sewing Friends! xx

  1. Very cute video. I just started paper piecing and I enjoy it. I didn’t know if you do this but I change my stitch be shorter this seems to help when tearing the paper off. I loved seeing buzz in the background too! Thanks for your awesome video! Look forward to more of your videos and love your outtakes!
