Intro to Paper Piecing

Curious about foundation paper piecing? Come learn the basic techniques by sewing your choice of a butterfly or moth from patterns by Lillyella Stitchery. The blocks finish at 5”, perfect for using in a larger project with other 5” charms or as a quilt label! 

You will be required to bring your sewing machine and have experience using it. This is not a beginner sewing class - it's a beginner paper piecing class!

Choose a butterfly (Cricket, Gidget, or Pepper)  

or a moth (Lita, Viv, Siouxie, or Jett)   from Lillyella Stitchery.

Your chosen pattern will be printed before class on foundation piecing paper, but you’ll learn how to print your own patterns at home with correct scaling, as well as how to enlarge and reduce the size of existing patterns using a copier. 


  • Sewing machine - choose a foot where you can see your stitching line

  • Fabric for butterfly/moth and background (scraps are fine - these blocks are small)

  • Neutral thread for piecing

  • Rotary cutter and ruler

  • Glue stick

  • Regular (paper) scissors for cutting out pattern pieces

Optional but useful:

  • Add-a-quarter ruler

  • Seam roller
