Hello!
I love learning new techniques and am keen to learn lots of quilting bits. My first quilt (see finished quilting projects forum) was rushed and hurried with a few errors!

For my next project, I plan to hand sew the patches and the patches will all be backed with paper like the photo below (my test patches!)



I wondered if anyone had any advice for stitching them together- techniques etc. (I have tried google but haven't found what I am looking for). I wanted to use the paper as I know it is an old technique and the paper will most likely stay attached to the patches (It is for an art project- The Patch Project-linked in my signature).

Thanks!!

Hi there! For English Paper Piecing that I've done with hexagons, you put two pieces right side together and just stitch it up with little whip stitches. That's pretty much it! Usually they are strange shapes like diamonds or hexies, so you have to fold some of them while working some seams, but you should have a pretty easy time of it, just stitch yours in columns and then together!
