Default hand pieced with traditional American piecing

Could some very clever person explain this method?
A quilt by Jenny Ball was at the Festival of Quilts and the title is the description of the quilt. It was fussy cut small and beautiful my friend says best in show for her. Not sure i can post a picture due to site rules and also the festival of quilts rules.

Jenny Beyer hand pieces all of her fabulous quilts- visit her website to browse her gallery- then visit her tutorials, hints & tips area. I love hand piecing and have found with her patterns it is often easier to hand piece than machine piece. not sure what you want 'explained'....hand piecing vs. English paper piecing I guess- instead of having paper templates you baste around then whip stitch with Jenny's (and any *traditional* hand piecing) you have to do some prep work- cut out your pieces- draw you seam lines, or match dots; pin, stitch. the accuracy achieved from hand piecing is beyond compare- and hand piecing makes blocks possible that would be very difficult to achieve with a machine.

I believe traditional American piecing simply means hand-pieced with a single strand of thread. I looked up the quilt on a blog, and the blogger said it meant it was not paper-pieced. It was also hand quilted.

Here is another site that mentions each star piece was "fussy cut":

that's what I thought too, American as opposed to English Paper Piecing.
