English Paper Piecing Workshop
Do you love bright, geometric quilt designs but wonder how to get such sharp points and accurate piecing?
English paper piecing is the answer and this collection shows you how to sew your own patchwork projects even if you’ve never made a quilt before. English paper piecing (EPP) is a traditional patchwork technique which uses hexagon-shaped paper templates which are pieced together by hand sewing rather than machine piecing. This process of hand piecing is both mindful and calming and the fact that it doesn’t rely on a sewing machine makes EPP the perfect ‘sofa sewing’ project that can be done while relaxing in front of your favourite TV show or while socialising with friends.
Jenny Jackson is an expert in EPP and has been demonstrating the technique and showcasing her patterns on TV craft channels and magazines for a number of years. She has created this collection of techniques and patterns for modern EPP projects for the home including some really striking, large quilts. Jenny holds your hand through the EPP process so, even if you’ve never tried it before, you can complete projects to be proud of. Even if you already have some experience with EPP, Jenny shares her tips and tricks for quicker and sharper results so you can improve your skills.
