Modern Quilts with Simple Paper-Pieced Design

Detail of of the "Flight Delight" quilt.

Modern Patchwork Home is chock full of amazing quilt and accessory patterns. One type of pattern that has been gaining popularity in the last few years is the paper-pieced quilt. Endlessly versatile, this style of piecing allows for oddly shaped blocks to be sewn together with ease (with a little practice of course!). One of my favorite paper-pieced quilts is “Flight Delight” designed by Vivika Hansen DeNegre. Check out the description below for this awesome quilt!

Do you love the winged birds, colorful butterflies, and busy bees of springtime? Simple paper-piecing techniques and a fat quarter bundle of playful bright polka dots, dreamy pinstripes, and neutral prints are all you need to create this utterly charming foundation-pieced “Flight Delight” quilt. Got an overflowing scrap basic? You can easily supplement the fat quarter bundles with coordinating fabrics from your stash to create a one-of-a-kind look that adds even more spontaneity to the design.

Additionally, the “Flight Delight” quilt pattern includes foundation templates as well as handy tips that take the guesswork out of foundation paper-piecing (perfect for beginners looking to try a new technique as well as experienced quilters hoping to boost their skills). The pattern also features easy-to-follow directions for quilters of all skill levels and step-by-step directions for creating the beautiful French-fold Binding.
