    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.

    1. Eileen

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

      1. ofenjen Post author

        Hi Eileen,
        Thanks so much! If you’ll just click on the name of the pattern, it will open the pattern file for you in a new window.

  2. Corry Geissinger

    Thank you very much. I am going to use the love sign and the scrappy heart and scrappy heart2 to make a quilt for my daughter that is hearing impaired. Thanks so much.

    1. ofenjen Post author

      It’s my pleasure! I would love seeing a photo when you’re done. If you post it to your blog, please let me know. 🙂

  3. Rena Balla

    OMG! I absolutely LOVE this site…thanks so much for many anticipated hours of paper piecing in my future… Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  4. marilee botos

    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!

  5. Dolly

    I could not find the paper pieced free pattern for sweet sue tops the tree on the blog. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  6. mary beard

    would like to meet you – this is mary beard from austin area quilt guild and just stumbled on your site…you have a great site with fun stuff!!

    1. ofenjen Post author

      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!


      1. Jennifer Ofenstein Post author

        Hi Peggy,

        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!

  7. threads57

    What a wonderful blog and site. I can’t wait to start the Hobbit blocks. My son is a huge fan of the whole series of books and movies and I know he will love this quilt. Loved looking thru your patterns.

  8. Shirley

    Thanks so much for sharing. My 5th graders will really enjoy making some of these patterns for the holidays.

  9. Jeanann

    I am sooo pleased to win a copy of your kitchen window pattern!

    I love your paper pieced designs, be they tantasy, whimsical, juvenile, or traditional ones.

    Thank you,

  10. ReaderWoman

    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!

      1. ReaderWoman

        I saw it! OMG. I said OMG so many times I thought my husband was gonna use a book to smack me up side the head! 🙂

  11. myra

    Wow! This is so impressive. I’ve got to try more paper piecing this year! Thanks for making so many available for free 🙂

    1. ofenjen Post author

      Thanks, Myra! I’ve been building my free pattern collection up for years and it’s nice to have it better organized for everyone to use. 🙂

  12. cherylmonica

    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.

      1. Fran Morrison

        Hi, I can’t seem to find the mushroom house paper piecing block Artisania on your site, thanks! Fran

  13. Bren

    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!

  14. Jean S.

    Well, poof…..I get only a black screen when the PDF won’t come up for any of the vampire series of patterns.
    Any solution?

  15. Jean S.

    Thank you for replying so very quickly.
    My daughter and I are thrilled to have found your patterns. They are so unique & wonderful.

  16. cherylmonica

    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.

    1. Jennifer Ofenstein Post author

      Thank you! Paper piecing is my addiction, too, and I couldn’t think of a better gift than sharing a whole month of free patterns with my readers. I’m so glad you’re enjoying it, too! 🙂

  17. Barbara MacKay

    I love paper piecing and just found your patterns. They are wonderful and I am ready to make more scrap quilts using your patterns. Thanks so much. Grandma

  18. Linda Thune

    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!

    1. Jennifer Ofenstein Post author

      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.


  19. Maria do Carmo Pezzuto

    Muito Obrigada por se desprender e nos liberar padrões livres tão bonitos.Acabei de te descobrir por Amy,em uma colcha pipa.Só vou fazer em uma toalha de banho para o meu neto.Deus te abençoe sempre.Felicidades.

  20. Joanne Volk

    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.

  21. Darcy

    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!

    1. Jennifer Ofenstein Post author

      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!

      1. Darcy

        Thanks for taking the time to do that for me…in the meantime I am enjoying many of the other designs! Thanks again Jennifer

  22. Chris Flynt

    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.

  23. Rebecca

    I think I have been under a rock. I would like to make all the sun bonnets. I need to go get a wireless printer. A 73year old trying to keep up with her grandchildren. Can’t wait to keep reading and sewing with your ideas

  24. Lisa M

    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.

  25. Cheri Ramos

    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,

  26. Kathy Treece

    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!

  27. Joyce Ellis

    I just found your site and was so happy with the wealth of information you are so generously sharing. Thank you so much!

  28. Carolyn Champion

    Thank you for all you share with us…love paper piecing and you have so many things and unusual things too. I love to see you on Craftsy too….we’re so lucky to have such great classes etc available and at a reasonable price. Keep up the good work ( but I can tell you love what you do) Isn’t that wonderful!! Smiles Carolyn

  29. Sharon

    I would like to use your asl I love you sign in a quilt I am making but I can’t seem to download it. Is it still available? If so may I get the pattern. Thank you.

  30. Cristina

    Thank you so very much for creating the FPP patterns and making them available for free. It’s very much appreciated.
