Japanese Folded, English Paper Piecing
Sue’s Top Tips
- Stitch from the centre of the circle to the opposite centre and then repeat for the other side of the circle – it will be easier to keep under control with 4 pieces of cotton.
- Use a pressing square and paper clips to make the square of Japanese folded to help get your material into the right position
