English paper piecing is a method of quilting that is done entirely by hand, making it a great project for quilting on the go.
Your instructor, Ashley Hough will show you all of the materials you will need for English paper piecing, including; fabric, a hand sewing needle and thread, and both paper and plastic templates- which will be used for cutting out the fabric.
This class will cover some of the most common shapes used when doing English paper piecing, including the hexagon, clamshell, and diamond. Ashley will show you how to cut out your fabric using a template and ensure that it is larger than the paper template that the fabric will be sewn to.
You will learn how to baste your fabric onto the paper using both a glue method and a hand sewing method. She will teach you how to baste different shapes, including those with straight edges, curves and sharp points. Once you learn how to baste your fabric shapes, you will be ready to assemble all of the pieces together and remove the paper. You can then practice your English paper piecing with a fun, easy pattern download.
