FPP fold-and-what?!

Friends!  I'm so stoked to share with you this Fresh Quilting TV segment*, where I walk through my ALL TIME FAVE foundation paper piecing trick, the good ol' "fold-and-flip"!

...Okay, so maybe trick is the wrong word - let's try "method." Because whether I'm fussy-cutting prints or sewing only in solids, this right here is how I paper piece allllll the things. That's right, I cut out everything in advance using a rough 3/8"-1/2" seam allowance, then fold-and-flip my way right past the seam ripper.  Wanna learn how? CLICK PLAY!

  1. Excellent! Using the seam ripper should definitely be avoided at all costs :) so I'm loving your tips. It's the frustration of placing the fabric pieces that keeps me from loving FPP and this will help with that as well as improving graphic design. Thanks!!

  2. Thank you for the explanation! I’ll give this technique a try!
