  1. Thank you! I have been dabbling in patch work and quilting for nearly a year and just decided to try some paper piecing and can’t believe how lovely these patterns will be to start with. Thank you!

  2. Thank you so much for all of the patterns! I want to start a batik star quilt after the holidays, your patterns will be an awesome help.

  4. SO amazing! Question: I have only started English Paper Piecing recently, by hand with hexagons. Can I do the same with these patterns (leaving the paper in and folding/basting the edges)? Your work is seriously beautiful!

  5. They are all so beautiful I don’t know which one to pick. I am in need of the 12 1/2 inch blocks as an exchange with my secret pal at my guild. Thank you so much for your website.

  6. Love your patterns; just started paper piecing & am working with silk which I have to stabilize (yawn) but the blocks make beautiful little tableaux which I am then attaching to canvas for wall hangings. These are the nicest free patterns I’ve seen & better than some of the ones I’ve paid for too! Big thanks……

  7. Thank you , thank you for sharing so many star patterns!!!!. I am starting a queen size Mariner’s Compass/Star quilt and am using so many of your free patterns. Thank you!

  9. I tried to download the Penny Lane by 627Handworks but I get a message it can’t be found. Could you please assist me in downloading this pattern? Thank you.

  10. You have an amazing body of work here! I love paper piecing, so I don’t have to tell you how much I love all your blocks! Fantastic!

  11. So here we go… starting down the line. Decided I’m making them in order! Wish me luck (this first one will be my 5th ever made paper pieced block) Yikes!

  12. Newbie to quilting and wanting to explore the world of paper piecing. Thanks so much for sharing your patterns. Sale at the local fabric store this weekend…..need I say more? 😉

  15. I just wanted to say that it is amazing all the patterns you have the goodness to share. I love browsing your site. And I follow you on flickr. Thanks for taking your time for all you do, the blog, the patterns, the quilting, the flickring.

    • Thanks for the lovely comment, though I must admit I just love quilting and sharing the amazing patterns that are out there on the internet. I love helping people make pretty things!

  16. Hi! I am a newbies newbie! LOL Love, Love, Love all your patterns. I am making a Texas block quilt, just coming up with different blocks and was wondering if there was a Paper Piecing Pattern for a North Star Block. I haven’t found one and I know that if there is…you would have it. Thanks so much for all you do and for any help you can give me on the north star.

  17. I will try to upload it from the book I have. It is Quilt Blocks on American Barns by Eleanor Burns. Just really pretty I think. Thank you so much for your help. My daughter is the computer geek so I will see if she can help me. I just love your patterns!

  18. Hello Cath,

    I am vice president of the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild, Santa Rosa, CA

    I’m also in charge of the Block of the Month program for a second year.

    This year I’m doing paper piecing (check the website if you like and look under Block of the Month in the tool bar) …

    I’ve been having great fun creating the patterns.

    Looking at your website, I could not find any reference to the use of your WQ patterns other than private use.

    By any chance could I use one of your patterns for the BOM program? Of course I will give you full credit for the pattern. Also, if you look under Friendship Blocks, you will see pictures of star blocks made for Jim Jensen (me); when I put out the request for the blocks, I referred to your blog, and you’ll notice several that were made with your patterns.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Jim Jensen

  21. I am blown away by the number of free paper piecing blocks that you offer here. They are incredible, and your color sense is just plain AMAZING! I love all of them! I can’t decide which one to do first! Thank you for your generosity.

      • Teresa I just opened and downloaded the pattern without any problem. If you are still having issues I will talk to Julie and see if she will let me just send you the PDF. So let me know if you still can not make it work, and in the meantime I will reach out to Julie about sending you the PDF.

  22. i googled paper piecing and chose this website first. I have made my grandchildren quilts and only two grandchildren left to do. (5 so far) . My next is 17 yrs old just started college. he is an avid sportsman. hunts fishes football wrestling. I was sort of considering paper piecing bears, deer, fish trees I don’t know im not sure. do you have any patterns for wildlife or something along those lines? I went to a class or two on quilting in general and I did one small paper pieced Christmas tree. its not easy in a way but I would be willing to try it. i’m thinking a full/queen size quilt. any suggestions?

  23. Hi…I love your choice of fabric..hope to be able to better in my future..I am looking for a large sun surrounded with rays…have you ever seen one. Anyway, this site is a keeper…blocks excit me.

  24. I came across your website while doing an paper piecing search. I have to say that these are my favorite patterns, hands down. We have a similar sense of color. I just love bright colors! Thanks for all the free patterns. I will definitely be making some of these.
