We’re celebrating our 35th anniversary here at American Quilter’s Society. So join us as we look back at the trends that have shaped the quilting world and the trends of the moment fueling the future of quilting. This month, we’re trying English Paper Piecing or EPP for short.
English Paper Piecing uses paper templates in constructing blocks. Fabric is folded over the template, basted, and whip stitched together, usually by hand. EPP is a little bit magic, because you can create blocks and motifs from most any shape with ease and it’s easy to take EPP projects along with you on trips and errands.
How to Try This Trend
We have a tutorial you can download by CLICKING HERE that takes you step-by-step through the basics of English Paper Piecing. Once you have the basics, cut out some templates and get inspired. We’ve got you covered with both! Load up the printer with cardstock and grab these free EPP patterns.
