Intermediate | 37 min 41 sec
Creating fabric shapes
Piecing shapes together
Create precise shapes when you learn the English Paper Piecing quilting technique, where fabric is wrapped around paper pieces. The design possibilities are endless because the shapes align beautifully. Liza shows you how to piece a hexagon shape, but the same principles apply when you work with diamonds and other shapes. She’ll show you how to choose your materials and tools, create the hexagons, and then appliqué them onto tea towels.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Precut piecing paper (in your desired size and shape)
  • Fabric of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Size 9 and Size 11 straw needles
  • Heavy and fine thread
  • Temporary fabric glue stick
  • Rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • Plastic quilting ruler
  • Mary Ellen's Best Press (optional)
  • Blank tea towels or other items you want to embellish
Learn how to:
  • Use three ways to baste your fabric
  • Use paper piecing templates
  • Ues pattern and layout ideas

What you’ll get:
  • A detailed lesson on how to work English paper piecing
  • 6 HD video lessons you can access online anytime, anywhere
  • Itemized supply list
  • Step-by-step expert instruction from Liza Lucy
  • The ability to leave comments, ask questions and interact with other students

I really enjoyed your class. I have done a bit of it in the past, but just guessed at how it was done. I love to do hand work, so this is something I want to do. Thank you so much for your class. You have sent me onto another thing to enjoy in my retirement.

What a fabulous teacher!! Even tho I've been a modern quilter for 20+ years, I somehow have never taken a class from Liza, and I'm realizing what I've missed out on by not doing so before now. She somehow explains all of the basic in's and out's of EPP in a 30 min video, including variations and how you can take a simple hexagon and make it infinitely interesting. I've found EPP incredibly boring in the past, but seeing all of the possibilities Liza presents here, I'm inspired! Thank you!!
