Pre-cut paper jewel shapes for use in English Paper Piecing. Jewel shapes are measured along the shortest side or the jewel ‘base’. The length of the long side of a jewel is twice the length of the short side
Six jewel shapes will make a petal flower block. Jewels can be paired with hexagons and 60 Degree diamonds. When matching jewels with hexagons you use the short side, when matching with 60-degree diamonds use the long side.
English Paper Piecing is a traditional patchwork style that uses hand piecing as the basis for its construction. The fabric is tacked to a paper shape & then the shapes are hand sewn together using a whip stitch. This method makes for very precise piecing.
