Take your FPP to the next level

Master advanced piecing with our Foundation Paper Piecing supplement and handy template sheets. There really is nothing like FPP for piecing beautiful shapes, from compasses to ornate sunbursts, and Lynne Goldsworthy shares eight stunning designs with you in our free mini mag. The magic of completing the last stitch of an FPP design and stepping back to admire our handiwork is one of our biggest patchwork pleasures and we can’t wait to see what you make with your gifts.

Don’t forget to download your free Foundation paper piecing templates here on the blog too!
