Foundation paper-piecing can sometimes be thought of a fussy-piecing. Blocks are constructed a bit backwards and making them can feel like you're driving (or sewing) on the wrong side of the road. However, it's not as hard as one might think and the types of blocks you're able to make with the technique, plus the precision achievable with it, far outweigh any added effort.
With tried and true teaching methods throughout The Quilter's Paper-Piecing Workbook, as well as her guiding voice, Elizabeth helps readers gain confidence and skills at foundation paper-piecing through gorgeous, inspiring projects. Educating in a way that makes success achievable is something near and dear to Elizabeth's heart. So, to assure that everyone that reads this book can learn to love paper-piecing, she has structured it like a class that builds in skill and difficulty. The book begins with very basic flying geese blocks and mini quilt. The, Elizabeth guides the sewist through the stages of more challenging projects and block designs. There are 15 projects total that utilize more than 20 paper-pieced blocks including wall quilts, baby quilts, throw quilts, small bed quilts, quilted pillow covers, a table runner, and small bags. For ease of use, the foundation paper-piecing templates are available on CD. Designs are simply printed and the quilter is ready to start sewing. No need to photocopy or resize templates out of the pages of the book.
Added bonuses beyond the fundamental technique instruction and inspiring projects make this even more enticing to quilters. Through sidebars, Elizabeth shares tips for precisely cutting fabric pieces, choosing the best colors for a quilt with many small template pieces, troubleshooting mistakes made when paper-piecing, and becoming a master at foundation paper piecing.
