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!
