  1. Thank you for this wonderful tutorial! I gave an English Paper Piecing Workshop and suggested this as the "Advanced" project. Students were encouraged to substitute an EPP "mini quilt" for the potholder and follow your directions to construct the organizer and then I gave them instructions for binding it when done. I love the sample I made for the workshop and it is now what I will use to take my own EPP projects on the road!
