I have yet to find English Paper Piecing something I enjoy. I know many of my friends like it and talk about how they do it. This book explains how so even I can follow it. Now all I have to do it learn to like it.
Pages 5 – 13 explain how to do this type of piecing and also cover quilting basics. There are 11 projects from a tote to lap quilts and various sized items in between.
The pattern the author calls Little Dresden Plate is not what I think of when I think of that pattern. To me, Dresden Plate is made from a “chopped off” long, narrow triangle. This pattern is made from circles.
The patterns begin with a paragraph about the item and then a photo of it. The next thing given is the size, followed by the material and cutting lists. Written instructions contain graphics and any templates needed at full size. There are no suggestions given on how to quilt the items. There is a short bio about the author.
If you like English Paper Piecing, this is a great book to have in your library.
