Most of these patterns are fun and simple. Some patterns require a little more “know how”. If you’ve ever tried foundation paper piecing, you will know how great these projects can be! Not only do they turn out PERFECT, but they can also be added to other blocks to make a larger project! I just loved these different patterns:
Mushroom Quilt Block
This pattern is very easy to sew even if you have never tried paper piecing before. This mushroom would be an excellent project for you with just a few steps to complete the design. Look at the added stitches (those green shoots) to make the Mousy a bit more comfy. Grab your pretty fabric scraps and get sewing! Pattern by Larissa with Stitching Notes
Paper Pieced Squirrel FTW!!!
This cute squirrel has lots of character and is a challenging but fun make. Use the finished block as a mini quilt or as part of a larger creation. Think of all the scraps you can use up!! The PDF also includes instructions to scale-up the pattern to make a quilt of any size. Pattern by Diane Lawrence with Etive & Co.
Wood Duck FPP Pattern
This 12″ finished FPP Quilt Block is perfect for the Hunter or Nature lover in your life! You can even enlarge the pattern to make a focal block in a lap quilt! Stunning! Pattern by Janeen van Niekerk
Paper Pieced Feathers
The pattern makes a 5″ x 10″ block. The beauty of this pattern is its versatility. This is a fabulous Pattern by Quiet Play. The arrow is also a Quiet Play pattern. Both are excellent!
