Starry Sky Block Foundation Paper Pieced Pattern

The Starry Sky block has been my most popular design by far, and for good reason.  Fun wonky stars are easily achieved when we use a simple foundation paper piecing template.  You can download the pattern below!  Here’s all I ask:  Please don’t pass the pattern around.  All I want in return for my free stuff is a visit to my actual site.  Not too much to ask, is it?  🙂

Best Tools for the Job:

Below are a few of my favorite things to use when foundation paper piecing.  If you haven’t tried them, you should!  They make a world of difference and help ease some of the most frustrating parts of foundation paper piecing:  tearing off paper and trimming!  Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper fits right into your printer and tears easily without ripping out your stitches.  A rotary cutter, ruler and rotary cutting mat make trimming and maintaining a 1/4″ seam accurately a cinch.

Troubleshooting the File Download

Here are a few tips if you’re having trouble with the Starry Sky PDF file.  I cannot email this pattern to everyone, I run my blog in my spare time which is very scarce!

  • You may need to create a free Dropbox account to download the pattern.
  • Once you click the Dropbox link and create your account, select “Download” at the right side of the page.  Once it has downloaded, reduce or exit the web screen.
  • Find your Downloads section in your computer or search “Starry Sky” in your files.  Scroll down to the “S” documents if needed.
  • Open the file, then select Print.  Make sure that you have selected “Scale 100%” instead of “Fit to Page”.
  • You may choose to only print the pages with the templates you need and save ink, then refer back to the file on your computer if you need help with instructions.  This is the same for all downloads available on my website.
  • If you still have trouble with the file, please leave a comment below.  Do realize that I can’t check my blog every single day and it may take two days to get back to you, so please try to be patient.

I hope this helps, it’s important to know your computer and printer functions in order to print any file successfully.  I will be updating this file to be cleaner and more attractive looking, but no guarantees when.  As always, thanks for making my block!  It makes the effort all worth while when I see your version of the block tag me on Instagram @aperseveringmom to let me know you’ve made it.

Happy sewing!
