English Paper Piecing
A perfect way to quilt-on-the go, you'll love the ease of hand stitching with paper templates.
Make and Baste the Templates
Pin a paper template to one or more layers of fabric. Cut out around the template with a 1/4" seam allowance. Your seam allowance does not have to be exact because the template will be an accurate guide.
Place a template right side down on the wrong side of a fabric piece and fold the seam allowance over one edge. Beginning with a knot on the right side of the fabric, baste the seam allowance in place; stitch through the fabric and the paper template with 1/4"-long stitches. Finger-press the basted edge.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all fabric pieces have been basted to paper templates.
