PAPER PIECES


English Paper Piecing (commonly called EPP) is a method of stabilizing fabric around a heavy paper shape before sewing the pieces together to create intricately pieced designs.
It provides excellent accuracy and precision piecing. English Paper Piecing originated in England and was called Mosaic or honeycomb patchwork.
In the late 1700’s, when all things English became popular in the U.S., the term English Paper Piecing was coined.
The most popular shape has always been the hexagon because it makes good use of fabric scrap and is easy to assemble.
The most recognizable hexagon pattern is called Grandmothers Garden from 1920's.
Whether you are new to EPP or are an old friend of ours, we hope the variety of projects and ideas on our site will inspire you.
You will find a variety of tool necessary for EPP at our store.

English Paper Piecing and EPP hexagons are nothing new, but this very traditional form of quilting has found a new lease of life
We’ve been EPPing (!) in front of the TV, on trains, in waiting rooms, in coffee shops – basically anywhere we fancy doing a spot of sewing and just can't get to a machine
