Paper piecing (its technical name is foundation piecing) is a popular quilt-making technique and is made by sewing pieces of fabric onto a foundation, often paper. Think of the paper as a temporary backing that’s pulled away — its drawn lines show exactly where to stitch. Foundation pieced quilts can also be made by sewing onto permanent foundations, such as pieces of muslin or a thinner cloth. Those foundations remain in place after patches are sewn.

Paper piecing is popular because it makes it easier to improve accuracy and create a perfect quilt.
