Try http://printfreegraphpaper.com and where it says which type of graph you want, select Isometric graph paper. All the diamonds you could want!Originally Posted by ai731
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Re diamonds, I forgot to say that when you are trying to tack around the paper, don't bother to try and tuck in the excess on the points. If you leave the little extra bit sticking out, all of those will lay flatter when you join on other patches.
I've used the machine to English paper piece. You just don't fold the fabric back over the paper. I've done a queensize quilt this way.
Wow, more power to your elbow! It had never occurred to me to do that.
Thanks very much for the link and the tip. It will be my first try at EPP because I'm going away on holiday for a week and want a "by hand" project I can take with me to work on while we're away.Originally Posted by Lacelady
I made my own diamonds, I forget the measurements, both paper and fabric, it wasn't that hard, if I can do it anyone can.
Hope this helps.
Well, that shuts out that category for me. No time for EPP apparently - like you, I'm just too booked as it is! How's the apron project going with your niece? Please take pix so we can see her and the work (if her mommy doesn't mind her photo on the internet!)Originally Posted by kluedesigns
wouldn't that just be paper piecing. not all paper piecing by machine has to be sewn thru the paper you can use the paper shapes to guide the stitch lines.Originally Posted by mary quite contrary
I just love English Paper Piecing (EPP). My favorite site is www.paperpieces.com. They sell pre cut papers and kits. Be sure to look at the gallery of finished quilts.
Good luck with the piecing, let us know how you got on when you get back, and have a lovely time.
