The current octagon fever at Quilt around the World enjoys a fresh summer breeze - our Summer Spirit is the perfect project for English Paper Piecing aficionados, whether at home on your balcony or in the garden, in a street café or on a vacation trip.
This English Paper Piecing template pack contains all paper pieces needed for this project - precut with a precision cutter so that you can start immediately. The large octagon is sewn by hand over paper using the so-called English Paper Piecing Technique and then appliquéd to a background fabric. All 120 pre-cut paper pieces for the octagon are included in this tutorial. You can reuse the paper pieces for further small and large octagon projects. The illustrated step-by-step instructions are in German and English. Follow our colour scheme or use your favourite colours. The project is also very well suited to use up scraps. In any case please make sure that your fabrics offer good contrasts!
Size of the octagon: Ø 60 cm (Ø 23 ½")
Size of the quilt: approx. 80 x 80 cm (30" x 30“)
