Tangled Stars – ten size FPP Pattern
I'm a big fan of star patterns and especially for Foundation Paper Piecing patterns. It's the best technique to achieve accurate points and after all that't the most important thing when it comes to sewing stars.
You can use this block in various projects: a mini quilt, a draw string as a special gift bag or a Christmas placemat. Or make several of them and turn them into a pillow, a wall hanging or a cute little baby quilt. And with the 4.5“ or the 9.5“ size you can add a little star sparkle to your next charm pack or layer cake project.
The pattern comes in ten sizes (4“, 4.5“, 5“, 6“, 7“, 8“, 9“, 9.5“, 10“ and 12“) with a coloring sheet and a bunch of design examples. The individual sections are clearly labeled and have 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 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.
