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.

Now start sewing and get sharing all your FPP creations on Instagram!

Thanks for the free pattern; I’ve always wanted to try and learn this technique. Since I’m making 2 memory quilts for a friend of mine, I’m hoping this is the motivation I need to add these blocks in.

I printed the free heart pattern. Love your patterns. I wanted to get permission to use it at a Guild Meeting to teach paper piecing.
