English Paper Piecing with Jen Kingwell

Good day mates! We're debuting a fun tutorial on English Paper Piecing featuring the fabulous Jen Kingwell from Australia. 
So what exactly is English Paper Piecing (EPP)? It is technique of stabilizing fabric using a paper template. It's different from regular paper piecing because each piece is finished before sewing them together. It's also a great method to learn as a quilter since with English Paper Piecing you can achieve great precision in piecing. 


Being a complete newbie, Kimberly was hesitant to try EPP at first, but with Jen's help, she managed to sew up her own creations! you can watch her learn all about EPP right here in this video




We know you're anxious to get started! So watch Jen's video tutorial, visit our EPP Notions page, and grab our EXCLUSIVE English Paper Piecing kit so you can sew along (and yes, the cute scissors bag is included!). 


Thank you so much everyone for joining us! Show us your English Paper Piecing projects on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter with #fqsfun and #epp !

Hmmm I've never tried epp but maybe it's time. I've got a baby due any day now and it might be a way for me to keep sewing without sitting at my machine.

I love EPP! Great video for newbies! -- and finally someone else who does 20 or more tiny stitches per inch--it's so sturdy and is not going to come out. Kimberly, your sample blocks are sweet!

What line of fabric did you use in the FB posting? thanks

Kath said...

I followed Kimberley making these on Instagram. Absolutely loved what she did. I do have a question, are you able to make the chubby dresdens from a mini charm pack? I have the perfect fabric.

@Kath Hi! Yes, the chubby dresden template fits a mini charm pack.
