All Points Patchwork: English Paper Piecing Beyond the Hexagon for Quilts and Small Projects


I have only made a few hexagon florets for my Charles Dickens quilt border. But after reading this book I look forward to trying more paper piecing projects in the future. I am impressed by how complete and well organized this book is, loaded with step by step photographs, and full of tips for successful paper piecing.

This is not a pattern book; it gives you the knowledge base for creating your own projects. This is my favorite kind of book, one that teaches you a technique to add to your quilting skill set. 

I recommend this book for beginners AND for experienced paper piecers. I belong to a quilting group with several gals who have done hexagons for projects. They were unfamiliar with some of the tips I had read about.

This book is also perfect for quilt guild libraries.

I received a free ebook through NetGalley for a fair and unbiased review.
