Hiya weekenders! Thought I’d just pop on here super quick to share a free printable version of my foundation paper piecing cheat sheet. I put this together a little while back for a workshop I taught at QuiltCon, and intended to share it on the blog as a resource for anyone who might find it helpful…totally spaced out on that, but here it is now!
This isn’t intended to be an in depth instructional, but rather a quick visual reference, easily printable, that you can keep near your sewing area in case you need a quick FPP reminder. I know when I first started foundation paper piecing, it was easy to get confused- I’d stop halfway through a piece and forget what step came next. Could have really used this back then. Hope you find it helpful!
Just click the image to open the printable PDF.
I do have several new patterns coming out this month that feature foundation paper piecing, either entirely, or in part, and thought I’d post a quick sneak peek just in case you’re on the lookout for new FPP projects! I’ll be featuring all of my new patterns at quilt market in two weeks (eeeek! I’m really excited!), and then they’ll be available in my shop, as well as in print for the first time – look for them at your favorite quilt shop!
This one is called Briar & Bramble and just a part of it is FPP- the rest is standard piecing. It’s a really whimsical and sweet quilt! Feels like an English garden in Spring to me.
This one’s called Lindy Baby after that old spindly Jenny Lind style of furniture that I love so much. It has that folksy look that I can’t seem to get enough of, and I think it makes the sweetest little baby quilt. The pillow in the crib is the Wishing Pillow and is entirely paper pieced, while the quilt just has a couple of types of units that are FPP.
I think one of these is just the thing for our sweet little girl on the way! Wait- did I tell you it’s a girl, yet? It’s a girl!! We’re so thrilled!
I’m also going to be re-releasing the Loverly Pattern in the fresh new Meriwether fabrics. Again, had to do two versions! Dark or light?? When in doubt, make both!
Hey, thanks for popping by today, and letting me share some pics of my newest quilts! I’m so excited about them! Can’t wait to share more photos, as well as feature them in my very first quilt market booth coming up this month. Eek! I need to get packing!
Enjoy the FPP cheat sheet- I hope it’s helpful!
