We know you love paper pad piecing as much as we do, so we designed a quilt along that is all about the blocks you can make with our favorite It’s Sew Emma Foundation Paper Pads! The Petit Four Quilt Along features six of our foundation paper blocks throughout the pattern to create something unique that will inspire you to get sewing. We’ve got all the details for you today for this FREE quilt layout!
We are sewing the 4″ Petit Four Quilt blocks each month from October 2023 through April 2024. This unique foundation-paper pieced mini quilt measures 32.5″ square, and the pattern includes a pieced backing.
One exciting feature of this quilt along is that there are already tutorials on piecing all of these blocks, and you can find them in the Foundation Paper Piecing Tutorial Playlist on Fat Quarter Shop’s YouTube Channel! Kimberly guides you through everything you need to know, and you can follow along with her in the videos as you work each month.
