    Wouldn’t you know it the one I would like to download it doesn’t work. I wanted the Asl I love you design but the link does not work to download the design. I have a daughter that is deaf and I would love to use this design on a quilt for her. My blog is not finished yet if you go there but please email me about this design.

      I also love the ASL pattern. I work in an Autism class with some non-verbal students. Is there a way to download it?

    Thank you very much for posting these patterns. there are many that I have been searching for! I am making a measuring quilt–it is a fabric tape measure with simple boy or girl blocks on either side. You hang it on the wall and measure the kids as they grown instead of a paper strip. However, finding small, paper pieced blocks that are juvenile and free is not an easy task! Thanks, again!

      Hi Mary! I think we might have met before, or at least said hello. I taught at the gift of quilting and I’ve been to several meetings (I just joined the Guild this year) with my good friend Osie. I should be at the November meeting and would love a chance to say hello!

        The image you’re seeing beside Mary’s name is actually just a graphic created by the service that hosts my blog. It would make a striking pattern, though!

    I was absolutely thrilled to find the book pattern. I have dabbled with quilting for years – but that one (see my user name) really rang some bells for me! Do you have other (free or otherwise) patterns that are reading &/or book related? Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I’ve just learned how to do the paper piecing and love it. Your site is the best and has the best of all I’ve seen. Thanks so much for providing the free patterns. Your site has really motivated me to learn this technique.

    Oh no, I thought I saw several patterns of books – as if in bookshelves. I swear they were your patterns, Jen? Being a librarian and beginner paper piecer, I thought ‘What a ‘novel’ idea to make for my colleagues!’. I appreciate any hint as to where I saw them – they were your patterns, right? THANK YOU!

    Happy Birthday! Thank you so much for The Garden Party Blog Hop. I’ve recently become addicted to paper piecing and looking at the new pattern each day is like getting a present each day. Thank you so much for having such a great site. I love that you also provide the free patterns.

    Your I Love You in sign language are very special. I lost a daughter two years ago–she was 24; she had lost most of her hearing in infancy due to an illness. I’m trying to build up the courage to make a memorial quilt from some of her clothes I have kept (and wear). The I Love You hand signs will be perfect. Now I have a pretty good reason to learn paper piecing!

      Hi Linda,

      I’m so sorry for your loss and I hope you find the courage you need to make your memorial quilt. It’s such a beautiful idea and I’m honored that you would choose one of my patterns as part of your project.

    you know I love your patterns, but I am making giraffe 2012 and cannot get it together. The sewing order indicates E>F, but I cannot figure out where they go together… Please help, I am having a brain lock down on this.

    Hi Jennifer, I just started paper piecing and I find it to be a lot of fun. The patterns on this site are so cool! My husband is even getting into it (a little) and, of course, now he has a request that I can’t find. He would like me to make something with the Green Bay Packers logo…do you know where or how I can find one? Or how to make a pattern? Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for the site…I have sooooo many ideas now!

      I’m so glad you’re enjoying yourself!

      I personally don’t know of a Green Bay pattern, but I have added it to the Request list on my other website, Fandom In Stitches. We have a lot of volunteer designers, so there is always a chance someone will draft it for you!

      Happy Stitching!

    I made this as the center piece of a quilt I made for my friends who are rabid Penn State fans. I sent you pictures. Very tedious work but worth the effort.

    Hi, wonderful patterns and thanks so much for sharing them. I wanted to do the Sitting Hen but I find the pattern confusing. Do you have one that has the coloration like so many of your others? I figured out most of it except for the hen’s head, not sure which little bits should be yellow and which need to be background. Just thought I’d ask.

    I’ve never paper pieced is there any particular place you would recommend for me to get instructions? I downloaded your 7 point star to make a Quilt of Valor. I would like to pair it up with a simple large 9 patch block and practice a quilt as you go method for this QoV quilt since we have a lot to get done for the big presentation in Austin in Feb. Thanks,

    I found your website today. I have always wanted to do paper piecing but when my friend was showing me how to do it, it seemed too nerve-racking and complicated. You have made it so simple and fun! I am in the process of doing the tree. And then I think I’ll tackle something harder, like the Harry Potter bookcase!
