English Paper Piecing is a traditional method of hand sewing patchwork pieces. In this introductory class we will teach you how to use paper and fabric to accurately sew hexagonal flower shapes. It is a wonderfully portable project and a very enjoyable method to use.
This technique can be a fantastic way use up scraps, but in this session we will be using fabrics designed by William Morris, famous for his stunning timeless botanical designs.
You will work on one hexagonal flower, which can be used as it is on a small project or added to in order to create the classic ‘grandmother’s flower garden’ quilt. The price includes a selection of William Morris fabrics and a hexagon template which will be posted in advance of the course. Participants will need to provide scrap paper, a needle, thread and scissors.
