Nancy-welcome to the IQ group. Hope that you enjoy it. We have a lot of fun. I see your DH restores planes. I work at the FBO in DBQ, so I get to see a lot of new and old planes. It's a lot of fun. The T6's will be here next month practicing for Oshkosh. Hope I get a ride again this year!

I like the portability of the EPP. Just got back form a work conference and I took my Double Wedding Ring EPP project and worked on it while enjoying/enduring the sessions.

Your quilts are wonderful. I love the colors. You must not be new to this hobby.

Thanks Nancy - my daughter is a preschool teacher and the ABC quilt (along with several of my other juvenile quilts) went to her classroom. She has them in her reading corner and the kids love to cuddle up with them. They also come out for pretend picnics with the classroom's dolls and stuffed animals. Makes me feel good that so many little ones get to enjoy them. They get laundered a lot but seem to be holding up OK - just getting softer and softer! The ABC quilt is from the book PS I Love You Three by Lynda Milligan & Nancy Smith.

Nancy - I do my own quilting. I used to do hand-quilting only, but am learning how to machine quilt - such a huge stash of tops waiting to be finished. I'm watching all of your beautiful quilts go by as I'm typing this - you're quite prolific and talented, yourself.

Nancy, thanks for the nice comments on my quilts - I do love EPP and have lately become obsessed with yo-yos! As for EPP - I would begin by using a larger hexagon shape - something 1 inch or larger. The bigger pieces are easier to handle when basting the fabric on. I like the other shapes also, but the sharper points with the diamonds can be a little more challenging. I highly recommend buying the die-cut pieces as they stand-up to multiple uses and bend well for sewing together. I see that there has been a running thread on the EPP group about using starch as you would with applique, but I don't find that necessary. If you need something to keep the fabric from moving around just put a pin in the paper and fabric. I also baste through the paper pieces and that seems to hold the fabric well. I also do not press the pieces - that's why I love this method of quilting so much - totally portable and no pins or iron necessary! Whatever method you choose for getting your fabric on the hexagon pieces, I hope you enjoy EPP as much as I do! Debbie

I don't blame you Nancy. I try to skip as many steps as I can!

Nancy ~ I starch after they are all basted and sewn together but remember that you only starch the outside edge. If you're using undiluted starch try to not put starch on the basting stitches.

Hi Nancy! The starch method is one that was taught to me verbally a couple of years ago. I'm not sure if its written down anywhere. Its very simple. I used it for applique so it makes sense to incorporate into EPP. You use a small, cheap paint brush and paint the starch onto the outside edge and 1/4" seam of the EPP piece (and press) that will be hand sewn onto the backgroup fabric. It gives you a wonderful crease that will stay until its sewn on. I use straight starch, however, you can use spray starch and spray it into the lid. PPM

My mistake. Cindy is not the founder of this site. The one I am talking about is quiltcampus.net . Cindy is one the main page of EPP in discussions. Click on her. I hope I didn't confuse you too much!!!! My brain doesn't work as well as it use to.

I thought it was a college site, but it is connected to "MSdesign" of this site. Lots and lots of info. I didn't know about putting a hole with a paper punch in the paper piece and using a pin to hold the fabric. I learned a lot from her and paperpiecing.com.
