{Stripe-eee Piecing}


I don't claim to be an expert on foundation piecing, believe me! This is only the second time using this permanent foundation piecing method. I discovered it making these pillows, and loved how easy it was... so why not apply the same technique on a larger scale?

 Here's the back side, you can see the overhang of fabric before trimming.  The foundation fabric is just white muslin from Joann's, works like a charm!

Here's how it looks after trimming off the excess, nice and straight!

Front... fair and square.

This is just one strip out of three for a king sized quilt (yeah, about 103" wide!)  There will be Kona Coal (grey) strips between each pieced strip... I think its going to look awesome!

And Happy Mother's Day to all you momma's out there!  
Hope it was fabulous!

I've seen this technique before and is very interesting. What is the purpose of it? Just curious.

I really like this technique you use. I can explain how short the fabrics you are straight? And you use interfacing stick ironing or sewing?

Sorry many questions right?

Thank you
