Nancy talks to us about her love of English Paper Piecing.This interview was filmed last year at the West Country Quilt and Textile Show in Bristol.
Nancy loves English Paper Piecing so much that she started a business providing ready-cut patchwork paper shapes; these are accurately die-cut, here in the UK, which means that not only will your patchwork be that much more accurate but you can start sewing straight away! The papers are reusable.
English Paper Piecing is enjoying a revival because it’s so portable and you are able to use up scraps or small pieces of fabric as well, which means it’s very user friendly.
Nancy takes the time to give us a short English Paper Piecing demonstration with diamonds, which some great tips on what to do with the pointy bits (very technical description!) and a lovely work in progress with a kite shape.
Her top tip? – invest in good quality tools (and that includes papers of course)
We have several workshops here on the site with Nancy – which you can access by using the quick link: English Paper Piecing.
Nancy will be at the Festival of Quilts 2017 which runs from Aug 10-13th 2017 on stand H40. For more information visit their website: https://www.thefestivalofquilts.co.uk/
