Paper Piecing Party - New Patterns

Not surprisingly, my sewing time lately has been focused on the epic Lego Star Wars quilt – considering the deadline is looming in less than two weeks. So not much sewing has happened in terms of paper piecing!

However I have been working on a few new patterns that are currently being tested. Thought you might like a sneak peek!

Some knitting themed blocks:


I don’t knit – so forgive me if I got the yarn placement wrong! I’m a crochet kind of girl, though even that has fallen by the quilty wayside.

I’ve also been playing around with pattern blocks. I love when you put them together and a secondary pattern emerges. This one I think I”m calling Hidden Stars. You can see how it looks in fabric over at Sandy’s blog.

Hidden Stars

These (plus a few others) will hopefully be in the shop by the end of August. Oh and don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about the Fairytale patterns! They’ll be coming out soon! Pop by and check out how they’re looking fabric over at Gina’s blog Smile

Now it’s your turn! Share your foundation pieced projects!

Quick refresher on what the deal is with the Paper Piecing Party (full details here):
* It’s on every weekend here at Quiet Play, starting Friday.
* Link up something you’re working on that’s foundation paper pieced
* Link a blog post or flickr photo
* Visit at least two other links and leave a comment because that’s half the fun!
* I’ll pick one each week to win their choice of a free pattern from my Craftsy shop. Keep on paper piecing ;) Last week’s winner was Tanyia!


  1. Oh, you know i'll be picking up that Hidden Stars pattern! Just awesome! I'm already mentally going through my stash picking what i'm going to use! Was just over at Gina's, awesome! Your patterns are just fantastic Kristy!

  2. Love the hidden stars pattern Kristy! It will make a truly stunning quilt :-)
    Good luck meeting your deadline with the star wars quilt.

  3. Oh I like the stars. Guess what, guess what? I have to do some lettering for a quilt. So I've got your letters, watched a YouTube video and I'm about to start. Squeee. Hopefully I'll be linking next week, having lost my foundation paper piecing virginity. *quiver with excitement*.

  4. The wool on the needles looks really scary to piece! Great patterns as ever though :)
