Foundation by the Yard

Goodbye tricky bias edges and fussy point matching! Benartex presents Foundation by the Yard, designed to make your quilting more precise, less stressful, and as creatively different as you are. These innovative fabric foundations will make you totally rethink the way you piece!

Each panel is 45" x 46", and includes foundation patterns, instructions for piecing, and fabric requirements. No additional books or patterns are required.  The fabric foundation stays in place after you're done piecing, keeping your blocks stable and square. No ripping off tiny pieces of paper or snapping your stitches!
