8 modern foundation paper piecing patterns

I love paper piecing. When I paper piece, I feel like I am playing games. I like seeing the images of the pattern come to life on fabric. Actually foundation paper piecing is my favourite. So I have collected a series of foundation paper piecing patterns that I like most. I have tried some of them, and some are waiting for to be done. What's more, they are all free. If you are new to foundation paper piecing, it is a good idea to start with a simple project that teaches you how to paper piece. FOUNDATION PAPER PIECING TUTORIAL will teach you how to do it.

The rose pattern by Jitka Designs is amazing. The image above is my version of rose pattern. You can download the pattern for free and make your own rose with your favourite colors.

You can make a modern foundation paper piecing quilt with the traditional pineapple quilt block. See my tutorial for pineapple quilt block.

This Mini Kaleidoscope Quilt by Wombat Quilts is lovely. Tiny scraps are used in this pattern that looks great. Definitely on my to do list!

Butterfly blocks by Lillyella released four different butterfly blocks and I have made two so far. One of them is used in making zipper pouch. They are adorable.

This lovely pattern is here. Twinkling Tulip by Quilting Jewel. I like how this tulip turned out.

Flying geese is one of the patterns that I like and the quilt variations are numerious. You can make a whole quilt of flying geese or use it as a part of the quilt. Circle of flying geese by Piece by Number looks lovely. Above you see my variation of circle of flying geese.

The pattern is Starry Night by Wombat Quilts . The finished size is 8".

Wonky Log Cabin by 3and3quarters Log cabin quilts are traditional but making them wonky is quite modern. These foundation paper pieced wonky log cabin patterns are not only easy to make but also funny.
