English Paper Piecing (EPP), also known as Mosaic Piecing or Mosaic Patchwork, is a method of hand Piecing using paper templates to stabilize fabric. Historically the technique originated in England in the 1700s and was brought to the United States out of popularity and necessity. Fabric is basted to paper shapes using thread or glue and the pieces are then stitched together, most commonly using a whip stitch. It is a precise method, allowing the quilter to create accurate shapes, whether simple or complex!
Liz from, Free Spirit Fabric, will show two different techniques used to create EPP.
Morning Session: The morning session will focus on glue basting and creating a tumbling block
Afternoon Session: The afternoon session will focus on thread basting and creating Grandmother's Poise.
Feel free to sign up for morning, afternoon or both. Supplies are included, except for scissors, Lunch will be provided if staying for both sessions.
Take a moment, sit down and stitch.
