I have always been a devotee when it comes to hand work, piecing and appliqué especially.
I have dabbled with English piecing over the years, but lately have been drawn more and more to it.

What I have realised is that it puts the 
'Peace back into Piecing'. 
You can fiddle with your fussy cutting or you can just cover papers. It is very accurate, and in many respects it is a no thinking process, soothing and relaxing. 

Above is part of Folk Art Baskets and Lucy Boston. Both made with papers or English piecing.
My quilt Cousin Wattle also has English piecing.
My sanctuary and thinking space, where it all happens.
