    “I do a lot of foundation paper piecing, and I always find myself coming back to Quiet Play patterns if I need something specific, as they really are so well written and easy to execute. I just completed my first Pattern Club experience, but it won't be my last. There are many QP perks, aside from just the patterns, and I'm certain that you won't be disappointed.”

Behind the rainbow

I'm Kristy - I'm a mama, maker and designer. While I enjoy quilting, I love to foundation piece. There's just something about those perfect points and crisp angles. I've been designing FPP patterns since 2012 and love to fill them with rainbow and geometric shapes. I want to share my love of foundation piecing with you, encourage you to make the patterns your own, and to build your skills and share your love of sewing!
