Veruschka's presentation details her quilting journey from traditional piecing into the world of Foundation Paper Piece Quilting and Designing. We will explore many of the tips, tricks and techniques that she has learned in each of these areas.  Veruschka's style of presentation is very conversational and interactive.

This presentation will also explore some of the elements within her creative process, such as successes and pitfalls within FPP construction and design, choice of fabrics and color selection, thread, tools and much more.

During the presentation, Veruschka will share some of the Foundation Paper Piece projects that she has completed via a Virtual Trunk Show, as well as share details of some of her upcoming projects.

The speaker will be presenting her lecture via Zoom.
