  • Student Review of FPP Class

    I had to write to you to tell you how much I enjoyed your FPP class! Honestly, I have tried so many foundation paper piecing classes in the past and it just never clicked. I don’t know how you managed to to be so attentive and thorough with over 40 students, but you really hit it out of the park! You have a gift, my friend, please don’t ever stop sharing your talent with the world! You explained fpp so simply that I truly feel like I can tackle any project now. I have already purchased The Heart of a Lion pattern that you wrote and I can’t wait to dive in! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I can’t wait to see you at future classes!

  • FPP Class-Student Review

    Foundation paper piecing (fpp) always seemed so confusing to me. I’ve been quilting for 25 years and tried it once or twice but never got the hang of it. When I saw that Veruschka was going to be teaching a class on how to master fpp, I knew I had to give it another try. Within the first ten minutes of her instruction, it all finally started to make sense!  She provided our class with easy-to-follow instructions and examples that helped us to remember the flow of the fpp process. After completing the “Creating Memories” pattern, I was even able to explain fpp to a fellow quilter and help her master the skill.  I can’t wait to pull out the fpp patterns on my shelf that have been collecting dust for years and actually do them with confidence!

  • Student Review of FPP Class

    I wanted you to know that I absolutely loved the class and technique! It was my first time giving FPP a try, although I had watched a couple videos prior. I have previously gotten very confused (everything's backwards!) but your instructions were so helpful, and I've been able to continue working on my project. I just wanted to say Thank You for making it easy!
