English paper piecing is a very common hand-piecing technique that uses paper shapes as foundations to accurately prepare patchwork pieces for joining. Each trimmed paper shape is basted, pinned or attached with fabric glue stick to the wrong side of a larger patch. Seam allowances are folded to the back at the paper edge and basted in place. The prepared, finished size shapes are then joined using a whipstitch through fabric folded edges. This book teaches how to do this beautiful but time consuming technique by machine. It greatly facilitates the procedure, allowing you to create beautiful paper pieced quilts in a fraction of the time!
