Stabilize the Fabric with Paper Templates
English paper piecing, a technique of stabilizing fabric with a paper template, is a sure way to guarantee accuracy. It is most effective for designs that don’t have long straight sides but do have numerous set-in corners, such as the hexagon shapes in a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.
Many precut paper templates are available through quilt shops and by mail order. If you wish to make your own templates, trace the pattern on a sturdy paper multiple times and cut out carefully and accurately.
