  1. thoroughly enjoy your new series. I have been paper piecing for a long time, but there is always something new to learn, for example your knotting off on each corner. Looking forward to each new show.

  2. I’ve become an avid fan of Quilt Monkey and as a beginner in English Paper Piecing I appreciate how you explain the instructions in the simplest form. It diminishes my fear of failure greatly. Thank you.

  3. I’m really enjoying your tutorials and its great to see a fellow Brit in the quilt world. I haven’t done much EPP before and I just wondered how you would finish a quilt using a pattern such as the ferris wheel. Would you appliqué the whole lot to a background fabric or is there a way of just cutting enough for the edges? Otherwise it takes a lot of fabric.
    Thank you for your fresh approach to a traditional craft.

  4. Thank you for this new series! I just learned to paper piece hexagons a few weeks and and am really enjoying seeing the different methods of doing the same things! I was also wondering what fabric was used in the ferris wheel quilt that she is using as a sample? Its gorgeous!

    Thanks again!

  5. Love your series. Have been hesitant to try Paper Piecing for a long time but you have inspired me. I can’t wait to see what you have for us next! One comment, I would like to see a piecing layout lay diagram. Please keep your wonderful ideas and personality coming.
