Foundation Paper Piecing is where the action is.  All the most interesting designs use it, you never have to worry about points lining up, and the results are intoxicating!  I’ve never found a pattern easier to use when teaching this skill.  My proof of its popularity?  I taught this class last winter, and all six students finished their quilts this year!  (How do I know? Because we long-armed them all!)  But that’s not all: one of those six students, Diane, has been doing nothing but FPP since and is now teaching this class!! I’m betting my favorite stiletto that you’ll fall in love too. Come see! 

Diane began sewing at age 8, but it wasn’t until the mid 2000s that Diane dusted off her sewing machine and returned to quilting, which she’d done sporadically through the years.  Needing a bit of a refresher in quilting techniques, Diane took a class at Cate’s (Intro to Quilting) after she and her husband relocated to Guilford, and it’s been “quilting love” ever since!  An experienced teacher as well as nurse and attorney, she is excited about teaching quilting, and sharing her love of fabric, quilt designs and all things “quilt-y” with anyone who cares to join her!
