Pre-class work:
Photocopy the pattern pieces, preferably on one of the following: Carol Doak's Foundation Paper, Simple Foundations from C&T, or Perfect Piecing Foundation Sheets from June Tailor (all available at the shop), newsprint or lightweight copy paper. Make sure you copy at 100% size. Roughly cut the pieces out (do not cut directly on the lines).  Tape together the sections of pieces A, E, I, and J. Avoid putting tape over the sewing lines (the solid lines). Fold along each of the sewing lines to make a crease; it doesn’t matter which direction the crease folds as long as it’s directly on the line. Copies of the foundation pattern will be available for purchase at the shop for $5 a set.
