Giucy Giuce designed his foundation paper pieced Mini Series with scrap busting in mind. These patterns are designed to be made in a variety of sizes, ranging from 1″ to almost 8″ (some can be made even larger when combined).

Join Giucy Giuce as he teaches you all the tips and tricks for tiny piecing success. These blocks are more than just cute little quilts. Use them to embellish bags and pockets, make holiday ornaments or coasters with them, frame them for your studio…. The possibilities are endless!

You’ll learn every trick he has up his sleeve, from construction to fabric choices. This class is ALWAYS a blast! Don’t be intimidated by the size of the piecing. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve with just a little courage. No prior FPP experience required.
