In 1899, an unknown quilter began stitching fabric scraps on a paper foundation. Alas, the quilt was never finished. (It happens to us all!) The incomplete top is on display at the Virginia Quilt Museum, and the paper is still intact.
Can you guess what that paper foundation is made of? Old letters! I’d sure love to inspect those tiny bits of history!
For this month’s Triple Play tutorial, Jenny and the gals designed 3 foundation paper pieced quilts using our favorite new jelly rolls and layer cakes.
Each quilt is made with Missouri Star 10” Paper Piecing Squares, which don’t have the mystery and romance of 19th century correspondence, but they’re SO easy to use! See how simple and fun foundation paper piecing can be!
