This Spools of Thread mini quilt is a fantastic introduction to Foundation Paper Piecing. The piecing is simple, yet effective and the whole thing comes together relatively quickly.

Mini quilts make great wall hangings for your sewing space and are a great way to practice new techniques. They are also a great way to use up some of your saved up scraps or allow to you use small amounts of something special.

Each of the nine spools are made using FPP techniques that are suitable for beginners. The remainder of the mini is made using traditional piecing techniques. This pdf pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no technique tips included with the instructions.

Follow the Sew-Along where I take you through making this project from start to finish.

Your completed mini quilt will measure approximately 13.5″ x 15″. Print out the FPP pattern pages Actual Size (rather than ‘fit to page’) in order to create a finished mini of the same size.
