I love FPP! So much more accurate and precise :) I haven’t done any for a while as I have been so fixated on my EPP - I may have to find a pattern in the New Year… these gems look lovely Imi and I’m sure you will enjoy sewing them.

@Iminei My birthday is in December and OH buys me tanzanite jewellery.  I might be interested in the Tanzanite one.

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I'll have to look that up as i've not heard of foundation piecing

@Diane it is as @Lowena said, the work of the devil.  :devil:  It's something that you'll either love or hate.  Not a fan of doing it.

@Lilian  ...  you watched a video ????? on how to make the gemstone block? or freezer paper templates???

If its the former can you post the linky please ... When Im searching all I find are 2 minute I'm Mj Kinman blurbs ... nothing about the process and these patterns are a darned sight more complicated than any foundation piecing Ive ever done.

I recently watched a video on freezer paper templates, it came up on FB.

I’ll try to remember who did it and find a link.

I'm far too impatient to ever consider doing anything like that but I'm sure it'll be lovely when you complete it @Iminei

I tried FPP once probably 20 years ago and didn't even last a single block.  It was so tedious.

Yes  The FPP Queen downunder says Phoeey!

(Insert Light bulb emoji here please @Mr Twingo )

Of course Rubywishes is brilliant at FPP, she lives downunder and FPP is sewing back to front!!
Simples!!

Brilliant!!

But this isnt (apparently) Foundation Paper Piecing ... its pieced using templates
