    This is a short workshop on how to design a foundation paper pieced block from a photograph. You can either use pen and paper or EQ8 software to create this. Other software may also be used using the same concept however it will not be covered in this workshop.

    Note: Once purchased, you can access the class data any time, 24 hours a day and you get immediate access. (if you don't have an account we suggest you sign up for one prior to purchase)

    For hand drawn foundation:

    • Pencil and Paper (graph paper may be used but not necessary)
    • Printed photo - I suggest making a copy. Printing one from your computer makes it easy to reproduce if need be.  Note: Please abide by any copyright protections laws if you are using someone else's photo
    • Tracing paper
    • A scanner or copier to reproduce the foundations if making more than one of the same foundation - optional
    • Scraps of fabric to test your block

    EQ8 drawn foundation:

    • Digital photo
    • EQ8 software (EQ7 can be used too however the layout may appear different than presented)
    • Paper and printer to print out templates
    • Scraps of fabric to test your block
    Question: What does it mean by Duration of 10 or 14 weeks?
    Our standard duration for teacher help is 10 weeks. If you feel you need longer we have an option to select 14 weeks of teacher help. We find this is plenty of time for the student to be engaged. After the teacher time is ended you still have access to the class data and you also have access to extend your time at a later date (details are included in each class)
    Question: Is the workshop self-paced or do lessons open at certains times such as on a weekly schedule? 
    Workshops are self-paced. All lessons are available as soon as you access the class for the first time unless otherwise stated in the workshop description.
    Question: After I register for a workshop, how long can I access the class data (videos, text, images etc)
    Once purchased, you can access the class data at any time, 24 hours a day for as long as you need. On occasion, a teacher or workshop may retire, in this case we will give you fair warning so you can download the class data so you can still access the information.
    Question: Do I need to make an account?
    Yes, you need an account so you can log into the workshop. If you don't have an account we suggest you sign up for one prior to purchase. Workshops held at academyofquilting.com require an account on that website.
    Question: Can I ask the teacher questions?
    Yes, you can ask the teacher any questions relating to the workshop. Details on how to do this are provided in the course.
    Question: Where do I find the workshop I purchased?
