Just do it......

Well this is my motto but with foundation piecing I have not been so diligent.   For a couple of years now I have been having a few half hearted attempts to master this method of quilting only to give up and pack it all away but I have been invited again this year to join EPQ for their annual quilting retreat so I have decided that I am either going to get my head around foundation piecing or spit the dummy and forget all about it.    The former I hope.

As you can see in the photo below the printer has been working overtime printing off crossed canoes, spiderwebs and yes even one New York beauty.    I know I am being ambitious with the NYB - not only f/p but curves - but there are several expert foundation piecers who will be attending the weekend away so I will hopefully be able to get some good pointers.   

After I return from the retreat next weekend my aim is to return here and show you all of the above covered in fabric.    Wish me luck.

Happy sewing to all.

Me too Karen, I find I waste so much fabric with it, but it does look great
