English Paper Piecing
Intermediate | 37 min 41 sec
Create precise shapes when you learn the English Paper Piecing quilting technique, where fabric is wrapped around paper pieces. The design possibilities are endless because the shapes align beautifully. Liza shows you how to piece a hexagon shape, but the same principles apply when you work with diamonds and other shapes.
