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