Have you tried foundation paper piecing (FPP) before? It’s such a fun method for piecing blocks that results in super accurate seams (and we all love accurate seams, right?). I also love that you can easily get angles and shapes that would be hard with traditional piecing. I absolutely love doing FPP projects and want to share that love with all of you!

  

Over on Instagram, I’m hosting a foundation paper piecing sew along throughout the month of September. This is the most low-key sew along ever! There’s not a specific pattern you need to choose– just pick any FPP pattern that you love. Throughout September, post in-progress photos, shots of your quilt block, or share a finished project that uses FPP and use the hashtag #fallingforfpp. There are (of course) prizes each week, so you’ll definitely want to be following along and start posting.

I’ll also be sharing videos with tips and tricks on instagram plus a new (and free) FPP quilt block once a week right here on my blog. In fact, you’ll find the first free FPP block pattern right here! Click on the link to download the Simple Heart PDF pattern. It’s a super easy, beginner friendly block to get you started.
