My hand at English Paper Piecing

12 Aug

For this I’m going to need lots of practise – I want to do some triangles, but the corners were tricky to turn in when basting

I looked up on the net and found some help from CD Designs

to help turn in the corners more neatly which I did try…

hmmm, it’s tricky, and me hand sewing is not my strong point:(  I really want to do some English Paper Piecing and this seems a good time.

Any advice on those corners would be much appreciated:)

    I don’t tidy the ‘ears’ on corners until I finish piecing and then only if there are a lot of seams and the seam allowances becomes too bulky. But it all comes down to personal preference.

    Thanks Danielle, This sounds much better than the fussiness of hiding it all!

    Diana, the best place to look at for everything related to British Paper Piecing, in my humble opinion, is there. She knows everything and has lessons on this very subject right now. She found a book that changed her way of EPP. Go and see her website you won’t be disappointed I promise.
