(EPP) A quilting Technique used to hand sew intricate patchwork with the aid of paper templates. With EPP you don't haave to cut shapes precisely or sew a consistent seam allowance. Instead, you use the magic of a paper template to define shapes. No need for constant access to a sewing machine, cutting table and pressing board. You can cut all your general shapes in advance. The shapes are then sewn together by hand and appliqued on to your block.
