I love English paper piecing, and I'm always looking for instant-gratification projects that let me enjoy the technique without committing to hours and hours of sewing. This cheery tea towel makes up within an afternoon. The "pool ring" is an intriguing piece of EPP, and the "pool" is assembled by machine applique. If you're new to EPP, don't worry - it's easy to learn and very addictive. If you've only ever worked with hexagons before, this projects gets you playing with diamonds and triangles as well! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Thread a needle Sew a straight machine seam SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Applique size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
