I do both English Paper Piecing (EPP) and paper piecing. EPP is indeed the 1st one. takes time, but nice to have portable projects, I mainly do them when involved in something else, like meetings, travel, etc. with the understanding going in that any EPP project I have is a "long-term" project. Paper piecing I love - results are so nice. Takes a little bit to get swing of it. Ginger Rogers danced backwards and in high heels -- paper piecing is kind of like that. You are sewing on the opposite side of the the fabric from where you have your fabric, and the block will be reversed in directionality when you get done. but it really makes a nice finished project.
