English Paper Piecing 

English Paper Piecing, the creation of a quilt block or entire quilt using fabric wrapped and basted around paper pieces or shapes. Since fabric is "wrapped" around the paper cut to the exact size, precision in piecing is  very accurate. Once pieces are basted, then they are simply whip stitched together. The technique works well with traditional or modern fabrics, giving all quilters a useful technique for hand piecing.

No specialty items are required to use this hand piecing technique. Fabric scraps or pieces, needle, thread, and simple paper patterns are all of the materials that are needed.

English paper piecing is a quilting technique that has been used for many years. The growth of its popularity in recent years might be attributed to several things: you can achieve great precision using the technique, Plus this is so handy because it is portable, allowing you to take all of your supplies in a small container to work on nearly anywhere; and the process of handwork can be a very relaxing pastime.
