    foundation paper piecing - Nancy Roelfsema

    If you're new to paper piecing this is an excellent tutorial. I'm still a beginner and don't FPP often so have to re-watch the process every time I start a new project. Here's my favorite:

    FPP is a ball once you learn a few simple basics. How cool is it having the lines to stitch on!

      I took a class with a Quiltworx teacher and it was a blast. I made their one leaf pattern, and bought more to make. This is on my wish list to work on this year.

      This is a good video and great for those new and old to paper piecing. Thanks for sharing.
      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

          That was a great video. When I was cleaning up I ran across a simple pattern I was going to do and had bought the fabric for it. I'm going to save this!

          This is it. Short and fun to watch. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...6FORM%3DHDRSC3

          On a side observation, I was looking at her machine. Since I just bought a new Pfaff I was wondering what Smith and Owen was? It's a quit shop. lol

              Yeah it's pretty easy. I had found a print out link years ago and I just can't find it now. Here's a picture for the measurements in case you or anyone wants some practice. I printed it out right on the M* papers. You just have to cut the paper down first.

                  I always watch a tutorial for a refresher when I start a FPP.

                  I'll have to get busy to get something ready for the month of June. Something to think about, this afternoon!

                        I'm not sure that I will ever get to paper piecing but I love Nancy Roelfsema's On Point tutorials. I took her recommendation and ordered "The Art of Classic Quiltmaking" by Harriet Hargrave and Sharyn Craig. It only just arrived this morning, but I can tell that it will be an invaluable resource of encyclopaedic knowledge. A couple of quilting books I ordered when I started are so disappointing - containing maybe one quilt each that interested me enough to make or put on the "must-do" list. This book and the other 3 I recently ordered are in a whole different league (Jane Krentz's Lone Star Quilts - recommended to me here by Jean Sewing Machine, Edyta Sitar's Patches of Stars, and The Big Book of Star-Studded Quilts.)

                        So I have all these wonderful books to use but the stem cell treatment has started. And then there are the other obligations I have been neglecting.

                        However, back to paper piecing. The beautiful New York Beauty posted here by Patchwork Barb reminded me of a website recommended by a friend which may appeal to those of you who love to do paper piecing - Jacqueline de Jonge Be Colourful at https://www.becolourful.com/.
