Welcome, Quiltmakers! Paper Panache is the home of unique paper-pieced blocks, borders, and quilt top patterns since 1997. 

Paper piecing, also known as foundation piecing, allows you to achieve pictorial results similar to hand applique, but all sewing is done in straight lines on your sewing machine. We have more than 250 free and for-sale paper-pieced patterns available, and new patterns appear on a semi-regular basis.

If this is your first time at Paper Panache, check out all of the tabs and links to various parts of the site, especially the Pattern Collection. Paper Panache patterns may be a little more detailed, but they are not difficult. If you have paper-pieced before, you can do these, too. All purchased patterns are delivered as links to download patterns immediately after payment is made. A copy of the links are also sent to you in an email. Please see the Order Information page for more information.

Be sure to join our email list if you would like to get our occasional announcements about site updates and new pattern releases. 

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc., drop me a line!

See you again soon!

FYI: In November 2021 I retired from posting new mystery blocks (here is the last, MB100). Most of the mysteries are now available for sale, and a small number are still in the Coming Gallery to be reformatted. 

Rose in a Cruet by Linda S. Worland

The original rose that I designed in the '90s for a friend. The rose is paper pieced and the cruet is applique...I like to pair these techniques together in my personal projects.

ETA OCT 2022: I'm very sorry, but there is no pattern available for this small top.
