My first four blocks!

I still have a couple of side seams on the dark green block but everything else is finished!! I won't be arranging the blocks until I have many more in my stack but I couldn't resist sharing how much I love this…

Spreading the joy!

Jessica and Ali's EPP supplies arrived! I have a few things you can see in the background.





The three of us have become obsessed! Ali has been doing quite well without any more than what I gave her last week. Jessica also has the basics I left… Continue

I've changed my quilt layout

As I added more little hexagons to the rows I had originally planned for my quilt, I became less and less thrilled with the look.



On Monday, I decided to play with other layouts to see if I could find something I liked. I tried the Grandmother's Garden with a different colored center hexagon but it was too busy. Then I realized that if I made the entire flower out of one fabric I "modernized" the look. I am completely in love with this look! And, I can put the flowers together as I… Continue

A new EPP quilter!

Posted on March 30, 2009 at 6:25am 1 Comment

My step-daughter saw that I was hooked on EPP and asked that I show her so she could make "something small" like a pillow top. She didn't want to "over-commit" to anything else.



Well, I knew how it felt once you realized how easy and fun it is to do English Paper Piecing so I went over to her house for dinner Saturday with a completely prepared coupon organizer like mine.…

Kelley--Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to create dresses for the 20 little girls in the orphanage in Kenya that our church built and supports.  I'm on my second "batch" of 20 dresses--made so much easier by the wonderful price of your "seconds" and other clearance priced fabrics.  I am doing the free pattern on Nancy's Notions, for the "missionary dresses"-and it works perfectly.--I'm putting in a drawstring at the top, not the elastic, so they have a bow in a contrasting fabric on each shoulder.  This group of dresses is going in July, so I'm sewing up a storm, if you'd like a picture of your fabrics at work, I'd be glad to send you one of the girls after July--thank you and best wishes!!

Hi Kelley--welcome to the site!! Glad to see that you're enjoying the EPPs--the layouts are easy if you EQ--just plug in your color combinations and the virtual quilts enable you to have instant gratification, and more importantly, a really good tool for decision-making!! I do a limited amount of hand piecing--mostly needleturn applique--by hand, obviously!! But, there are always those irresistable patterns that are much more easily done by hand!! Just finished DS's Christmas sweater, now back to my applique, although another hemi is calling!!

You also inspired me to hand piece in general. I had been slowly foundation paper piecing a Harry Potter themed quilt, but found my machine piecing sloppy and discouraging. After listening to your podcast I picked that up and made a block by hand, and loved it. I then began hand piecing a quilt top for my new baby out of receiving blankets, and loving every stitch. Seeing my mother-in-law's EPP project sold me, I was memorized just looking at it. My order was shipped today, I will be EPPing very soon!. Thanks!

Hi, Kelly after hearing you talk about EPP on your podcast I decided to give it a try 3 days later and I am almost done with a small doll sized blanket for one of my daughters. I am hooked this is such a fun process craft. Thanks for the great podcast.

Hi, I just joined this group a few days ago and I am so excited to see other people with grandmothers flower garden. I started one about a month ago, I love working on it. I also changed a color on mine, now I really like it.

How nice of you to teach her! I wish I had someone in this area that liked to EPP but noone I know does. I have never even paper pieced but I still keep trying to figure this out. Have a nice day
