English Paper Piecing Sew Along with Fat Quarter Shop

Happy Thursday everyone! We are announcing our first ever English Paper Piecing Sew Along today. Early this year, we were introduced to English Paper Piecing (EPP) by Jen Kingwell and Sue Daley and we’ve been hooked ever since! This #EPPSewAlong will be an instagram-based event starting Wednesday, September 9, 2015 so follow us for EPP inspiration!

For this sew along, we will be sewing this adorable star quilt using the Meadowbloom collection by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics. 

If you want to join in on the fun, here is your supplies list…

1 or 2 Charm Packs (2 will give you more choices for the star points)
3/4 yard background
1/3 yard binding
3/4 yard backing

Are you in? We’ll see you on September 9th for the first post on Instagram with #EPPSewAlong !


  1. Yay, finally, I can see the information! Haha. I got this email yesterday but the link would not work, it was seemed to be missing and i am soooo excited about EPP! I was told this is how most people start out quilting, but i must have missed that memo, i never tried it. I am excited to try it 🙂

  2. This book looks amazing and since I work in the education system it means much more to me!! My favourite quilt is Grade 2, but they are all beautiful!!!

  3. (I think my comment didn't go through, I hope I'm not sending it twice). I'm anxious to start on this. I had ordered the EPP kit about a month ago, and have been playing around with the Hexagons. Now I'm ready to start on this beautiful mini quilt. However, I will be using a different Charm Pack – Aloha Girl by Fig Tree Quilts, mainly because I've been holding on to these 2 packs while waiting to use them for the perfect project, and this little quit IS IT! Can't wait to start.

  4. This looks like a fun sew-along, but have you ladies at FQS ever heard of "Inklingo"? It seems like a better way to achieve EPP designs with hand-piecing of pre-printed EPP shapes, but without the fuss of templates and the sometimes unsightliness of the uneven hand-sewing at the joins. Now I really need to get myself a printer before I can try it, but you really don't need fancy equipment, just freezer paper and a regular colour printer. Might be worth investigating…
