Foundation Paper Piecing 2 (Plant Lady)



Paper piecing is a technique used to achieve unusual geometric shapes, sharp points and the sewing of tiny pieces of fabric together.  You will build on what you learned in FPP1 to make four more plant blocks that you can turn into whatever project you like!
