One Template Heart – seven size FPP Pattern
As much as I love that you can sew the most complex and figurative patterns with foundation paper piecing – every now and then I need a quick and easy sew, only one template and I’m done. 😍 This pattern has some space between the heart and the edge of the block. This way the heart pops out more when you sew it to other blocks.
You can use this block with its seven different sizes in various projects: a mini quilt, a draw string as a gift bag for a loved one or a cute little pouch front. The 6“ size is great for mug rugs, the 4.5“ size fits perfectly into your next charm pack project.
The pattern comes in seven sizes (3", 3.5", 4“, 4.5“, 5“, 5.5" and 6“) with a coloring sheet and a bunch of design examples. The pattern has only one single template so it's a pretty quick sew and has a ¼“ seam allowance. There are no curves or y-seams.
The pattern comes as PDF files in A4 and US Letter paper format.
This is a very beginner friendly Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) pattern that assumes basic knowledge of paper piecing. It does not include detailed FPP instructions or further instructions for turning it into e.g. a pillow or a quilt. You can find lots of free tutorials for the various FPP methods online.
This pattern can be made with just a few cotton scraps from your stash.

AnneT – neurodiverse creative chaos
creations of a neurodiverse mind
I grew up with the sound of my mum's and grandma's sewing machines and have been sewing since my teenage years. Focused on clothes and accessories first a few years ago I caught the patchwork virus and have been hooked up ever since.
Meanwhile I create my own designs and write patterns for traditional piecing and foundation paper piecing in English and German for beginners and advanced sewers. I love to experiment with different colors and designs and to see what others create with my ideas.
