What Is EPP: English paper piecing — it’s quite a mouthful, but it sounds more complicated than it is! English paper piecing (or EPP) is quilting technique used to hand sew intricate patchwork with the aid of paper templates.
With traditional patchwork, you cut fabric pieces in precise shapes and sew with consistent seam allowances to create a patchwork fabric. This is fairly straightforward when sewing squares, strips and rectangles. With a little instruction, you can learn to traditionally piece most triangles, too.
But, when it comes to more irregular shapes such as hexagons, challenging triangles and jewel shapes, traditional patchwork becomes an advanced skill. Many struggle with accurate cutting of these finicky shapes. Little variances in seam allowance quickly snowball into disappointing results.
English paper piecing changes all of this! With EPP, you don’t have to cut shapes precisely or sew a consistent seam allowance. Instead, you use the magic of a paper template to define shapes.
Using Eppliflex Templates - These reusable EPP templates are laser cut clear mylar templates for English Paper Piecing. They are cut with a patented design that enables them to bend easily.
