english paper piecing: paper kites wall hanging

English Paper piecing, referred to as EPP, is a form of quilt making which is sewn by hand. The technique involves stabilizing fabric pieces with paper before sewing them into intricate designs. Because EPP is done by hand, it makes a great on-the-go project perfect for summer trips! 

During this class we will be making the Paper Kites wall hanging by Lou Orth Designs. If you have never done EPP this class is perfect for beginners. We will talk you through the cutting and preparation, basting, assembly and finishing your panel. 

The finished size is 11" x 10".  Students may need to work at home in order to finish the project in the three-week period.
