My First Alphabet is the perfect foundation piecing, also known as foundation paper piecing or just paper piecing, alphabet pattern to use in any project! The letters are crisp and clear and easy to make. Just watch out for that “S”… actually, it’s not sooo bad.

Pick your size

With so many project options ranging in size from a mini quilt, to a pillow, to a full sized bed quilt, you’ll need an alphabet that’s just the right size. It’s easy to get just the right size when foundation piecing! Start with the 3 inch pattern for smaller projects (letters are 3 inches tall and vary by width), or the 6 inch pattern for larger projects.

You can also adjust the size of the patterns to get just what you need. Read more about how to adjust the size HERE.

    Wonderful design with clear instructions. Couldn’t be better.

  2. Lee

    Love this! I used the letters on a quilt I made for a friend! Turned out Beautifully πŸ™‚

  3. Rachel

    This worked out just like I was hoping. I’m a slow sewist so the mini isn’t done yet but this pattern is great! Thanks Diane!

    I love these letters! I haven’t done a lot of paper piecing but I was still happy with how they turned out.

  7. Wendy

    Received the download super quick and the pattern is very easy to read/understand. Thanks!

  8. Lisbeth

    Really well organised pattern and is relatively easy to follow. A few YouTube videos were watched but that’s because my learning style requires me to see something being done- no reflection on the instructions given!! Love the pattern ☺️

    I have 3 letters left to do. This is turning out so well, I can’t wait to start another project with the letters. I do recommend having some experience with paper piecing for this project.

  21. Marta

    A very versatile pattern. Love it!

  22. Candice

    I’ve never paper pieced before, and it took me exactly 2 letter attempts to get it right, but the pattern pieces and the directions made everything stress-free with beautiful results!

  23. Courtney

    Brilliant pattern! I turned to it when let down by another fpp pattern from a different seller and this one is beyond better. Clear instructions. Great detail in the letters. Well put together pdf with different print options. Seriously worth it!

  25. Shauna

    Well written pattern and the letters turned out great.

    The end result looks great! I wouldn’t recommend it to beginners since some of the letters are complicated with many pieces, but once you get into paper piecing, this is a cute pattern!

    If you’re familiar with foundation paper piecing you will love this alphabet. I received an email shortly after placing my order letting me know that if I had any questions at all to simply respond to the email. I did and got a prompt clear and concise answer. I love this alphabet and would definitely buy again from this seller. 5 Stars!
