The Crafty Gentleman's Guide to Modern Paper Piecing

by Mike Aspinall

Have you heard of paper piecing and wanted to give it a go, but didn't know where to begin? Or are you a keen quilter looking to create intricate patchwork designs, but have struggled to create perfect, sharp shapes and corners? Then this is the book for you!

Paper piecing involves stitching fabrics over paper templates, and allows you to create complex geometric designs easily.

The book starts with the key materials and tools you need, followed by seven stunning contemporary designs, each demonstrating a new paper piecing technique. Every design features illustrated step-by-step instructions, and comes with 26 full-size templates for you to cut out and stitch on to right away.

Once you’ve mastered the essential techniques, put your new skills into practice by making the seven gorgeous step-by-step sewing projects from a pillow cover and a tote bag to a beautiful quilt each of which can be adapted to include any of the paper piecing designs.

This folder includes the instruction book, and a separate envelope containing the templates.
