How-To Video for Quilt Concert 2023 Block 7

The best part of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is that once you learn a few basic techniques, you can construct any FPP design. To help you learn these techniques, we are offering instructional videos for each block of the quilt-along. This week Lissa is sharing techniques and tips for constructing Quilt Concert 2023 Block 7.
