2023 FPP Sew Along: The Square of Pegasus Star Quilt

2023 is the year for FPP! Are you with me? This quilter's heart loves foundation paper piecing, and I hope that you will join me as we work through the first star in the Constellations Series, The Square of Pegasus.

How the Sew Along Works

You must have the pattern to participate in the event. Participants will complete a couple of templates each week. The weekly time commitment will range between 30 mins to 1 hour.

How to Participate in the Sew Along

1) Register here to have the weekly blogs sent to your inbox, and

2) Purchase The Square of Pegasus PDF pattern or paper pattern

About the Pattern

The Square of Pegasus pattern includes two templates sizes (18" block and 36" block). Take on the project size that works for you. The pillow and wall quilt projects are perfect if you don't have a lot of time and want to work through your stash.

The baby quilt project is a scaled-up version of the pattern and requires a little more yardage, but about the same amount of time.

If you're looking for a larger project, you're welcome to duplicate the pattern, just be aware that your weekly time commitment will increase too.

Cutting instructions are provided in the pattern, but I will share some tutorials on how to cut as you go.
