Foundation Patchwork

This months Popular Patchwork Magazine (October issue) contains foundation papers to create this festive, Nordic inspired hanging. Have you got any red and white scraps?


There is plenty of time to start on one for yourself, or make a few for gifts. I designed the block so it can also be repeated in a quilt if you’d rather go large. Writing instructions for sewing foundation papers is not the easiest job in the world, I hope I’ve managed to cover everything.

If you’d rather be shown, (I learn best that way), I’m running a workshop at Emporia Fabric and Crafts in Ashford, on Saturday 14th November. We’ll be making Caddies with a flying geese foundation detail around the top.


Sewing on foundation papers means accurate points. It’s a great method for sewing small pieces especially triangles.

If you haven’t already, I suggest you give it a go!

    I NEED a “Love” button!!!!! That Nordic hanging is so darling!!! Made a Nordic Star table topper, a gift, a while back and it was so much fun to work with reds!!! (It was Heather Mulder Peterson’s/Anka’s Treasures pattern from her toppers book) Never too early to get going on those needed gifts……..actually, it might be pushing the deadline already for ambitious projects……sigh……………..

    Thanks Doreen, it’s fun to work on small projects sometimes, less pressure 🙂
