Video tutorial: English paper piecing (EPP) mini quilt

This is the perfect project to learn English paper piecing. It’s small enough to get results straight away.

How to do English paper piecing mini quilt tutorial

Learn to do English paper piecing in just over 2 minutes:

There’re only 3 steps to start doing English paper piecing:

  1. Download the hexagon template (google doc).
  2. Print the required size  (this project uses the 1 inch pattern) on thick or plain paper – I used plain printer paper.
  3. Cut the patterns and get sewing

Two important points to make:

  1. Before printing make sure you’re printing at 100% to avoid surprises.
  2. Leave the paper template in until you have finished sewing all  hexies together
