Who would have thought using paper and fabric together would result in a lovely quilt? That's right, I am talking about English paper piecing (EPP). I have seen some lovely examples in the blog world and have always been in oohs and aahs about them. So I thought I would give it a go myself. It was not as daunting as I thought it would be once I figured out the size of the diamond template I want, go through the tutorials and Viola! I have made my very first star EPP.
The fabric combination are endless and I think it is a good way to experiment on different fabric colours, designs and texture that you never thought could look good together, or to use up your scraps from other projects. I found a few great blogs that has really good tutorials on EPP and some really beautiful EPP quilts for inspiration.
