English Paper-Piecing – How to Quilt Directional Diagonal Seams

Colleen Tauke & Jean Nolte | Runtime (8 min)


The Fons & Porter staff teach you how to do English Paper Piecing. Jean and Colleen recommend using a stab stitch because it secures the fabric to the paper best, makes a clean edge and is easy to rip later. Temporary spray adhesive cuts down on the prep time for this all-time favorite quilting technique. Card stock and a temporary spray adhesive also remove the additional step of basting your quilt. Use these quilt hexagons as a great way to spend those spare moments by doing a little hand sewing! Click herefor more Sew Easy lessons.
