About the Event

Online Interactive Workshop: FPP - The Lotus Flower!

Having endured all manner of internet connection problems with Storm Eunice during the original planned date for this class on Saturday 19 February, the lovely & hugely talented Ingrid Alteneder agreed to join us once again to run this Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) workshop that's bound to get you excited! In this three-hour class Ingrid's theme ties in nicely with our Mindfulness campaign that will run across our social media channels throughout February: FPP: The Lotus Flower - here's hoping no pesky weather gets in the way of the re-organised event!

Introduction by Ingrid:-

Hey there all you Monkies fans: Happy New Year! My name is Ingrid and I’m going to be your FPP instructor for this workshop. I’ve been working with fabrics all my life, first as a fashion buyer and then for my own fashion label. I’ve been quilting since high school and started 2019 my online business with FPP patterns. I absolutely love, love, LOVE Foundation Paper Piecing, because it's fairly easy and gives you perfect accuracy. In this workshop today, you get to make a stunning quilt block without having to sew an entire quilt!

What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Workshop:-

We’ll be making this stunning quilt block of The Lotus Flower. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite patterns; it’s also part of the ‘Buddha quilt’. You will learn to paper piece and also learn some basic tips & tricks to make your Paper Piecing life that bit easier going forward.

Intermediate: You should preferably have done some paper piecing, but could also be new to this particular skill.

Fabric requirements for this Online Interactive Workshop:-

Fabric needed for this quilt block (depending on the size you will be making) is as follows. The bigger the size, the easier it will be so, based on you working to a 10” x 10” block you’ll need:-

  • Approx. 1 x Fat-Quarter for the Background
