I am really enjoying EPP but I have to admit that I started the Bee cushion before remembering that I was given this book on English Paper Piecing at Christmas. I’m horribly embarrassed that I’d forgotten it was on the bookshelf.. especially because it is such a good book on EPP.
All Points Patchwork is a technique book rather than a project book and the author, Diane Gilleland, covers everything a beginner needs to know: equipment needed, types of papers, basting and how to sew the pieces, not just hexagons, but all sorts of different shapes including curved shapes.
It’s full of handy tips and hints and I’m sure it’s going to be one of those books that I will keep referring back to as I do more EPP and try to improve.
Once I’ve finished the cushion I think I’m going to try the Ring-a-Roses pattern by Flossie Teacakes. I fancy a bit of fabric artwork on the wall. Choosing the colours is going to be the hardest job I reckon though!
