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.

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
