Precision Pieced Quilts

Precision Pieced Quilts

Have you wanted to try foundation piecing with a larger project? Requiring no templates, it is readily adaptable to almost any pattern, traditional or innovative. After reviewing the basics of foundation piecing, you will begin a four-block wallhanging in your choice of several different patterns, each using a foundation for stability and precision, but with different block divisions, different skill levels, and different kinds of techniques. Patterns and foundations for all the projects are supplied, and the class will be broken into units, each working on one specific quilt.

Supplies

Bring up to 3 yards total of fabrics coordinated for a wallhanging. Include dark-medium-light values and background fabric. Borders will require extra fabric. If you are unsure as to which pattern you will make, bring 4-6 fabrics you love, a focus print and others coordinated for a wallhanging. If you are using prints, make sure you have contrast in both color, size, and texture. If you would prefer to work with scraps, bring an assortment!

Crazy Patch can be made with coordinated fabrics or scraps plus a background
Rambler (purple, beige) can be made using two fabrics and a background
Featherbone (green/white) uses only two fabrics
Tall PineTree traditionally uses an assortment of green and brown fabrics plus a background The Palm can be made using only two fabrics, more if desired
