Traditional hand piecing over papers with a whip stitch to finish.
English Paper Piecing
English Paper piecing is extremely portable and a great use of scraps. It is traditionally worked by hand over papers and the Hexagon shape is the most popular.
Great for Recyling or using scraps of fabric
In this workshop Carolyn shows you how to make the individual hexagon shapes, whip stitch them together and then join the flower garden rosettes into a quilt.
A simple project, though, would be to make two rosettes and turn them into a pincushion.
Shopping for supplies
Pre-cut papers are available from most good quilt shops, for various sizes of hexagon and other shapes.
If you are having problems locating, go to Creative Quilting at www.creativequilting.co.uk. for these and other paper piecing products.
