Foundation piecing is a method of quilting that allows you to use small scraps to sew detailed designs, or designs which require precision piecing by sewing through lines on paper which you then tear off afterwards.
English paper piecing is a hand sewing technique which involves stitching fabric shapes around a paper or card template and then hand sewing the shapes together (removing the paper or card once you have finished piecing). Unlike with foundation paper piecing you can normally reuse the papers you remove from your English Paper piecing. This technique allows for more accurate stitching of difficult shapes like hexagons and makes it easier to join difficult angles.
Both techniques are used to make quilts or patchwork and quilting projects like cushions, pouches and bags. They are also both scrap friendly quilting techniques but foundation piecing is done by machine, and you cannot reuse the paper, English paper piecing is done by hand and you can reuse your templates.
