Paper and Foundation piecing are methods for making the smallest quilt block with the highest degree of accuracy.

1 Press Jonny Seww Multi-Purpose Fabric or fabric of your choice to Jonny Seww Multi-Purpose Stabilizing Paper and print block design.
2 Remove printed block from your stabilizer. Place quilt fabric pieces on the unprinted (reverse) side of the foundation fabric. Centre first piece, right side up over section numbered 1. Hold foundation fabric up to light to make sure raw edges extend at least 1/2" beyond seamline on all sides. Pin in place from the foundation or printed side.
3 The fabric pieces you select do not have to be cut precisely. Be generous when cutting fabric pieces as excess fabric will be trimmed away after sewing.
4 Place the quilt fabric for section 2 on the first piece, right sides together. Holding both pieces of quilt fabric in place remove the pin and re-pin the fabric to the foundation on the printed side.
5 Flip the printed foundation block over and sew reducing stitch length on the marked lines between 1 and 2 extending the stitching past the beginning and end of the line.
6 Using a note card, on the foundation side fold foundation fabric back exposing quilt fabric. Trim seam allowances to 1/8" or 1/4".
7 Flip to the quilt fabric side and press section 2 down using a press cloth. Continue adding quilt fabric until complete.
8 After all the piecing is complete increase your stitch length and sew around your block just a hair inside the outside trimming line. Trim all excess fabric along the outside trimming lines.
