Gypsy Party EPP, 42″ x 51″, Vermont, 2022

I began this quilt in June 2022. It's my third English Paper Piecing (EPP) quilt and I'm still in love with the technique! It's based on Willyne Hammerstein's Gitana Fiesta (see middle image below). I'm working in lavenders and I'm really excited about this one. The piecing is simpler than My New Obsession, but the … Continue reading Gypsy Party EPP, 42″ x 51″, Vermont, 2022

Irises Rimpa for Mary Louise, 8″ x 10″, Philadelphia, January 2021

This is a small rimpa of irises that I made in front of the TV one day in January 2021, which I thought my realtor Mary Louise would really like, as a closing/parting gift to her. She did! These are the photos she sent me of it in her living room. I am almost finished … Continue reading Irises Rimpa for Mary Louise, 8″ x 10″, Philadelphia, January 2021

Whacky Butterfiles, 39″ x 99″, Vermont, 2022

This Stack-n-Whack quilt (Bethany Reynolds) was made as a sampler for a stack-n-whack class I was to reach in January 2022 for my local quilt store Country Treasures. The call did not run in January, but I hope to do it sometime in the fall. I will add a registration link when the time comes. … Continue reading Whacky Butterfiles, 39″ x 99″, Vermont, 2022

Hen Rietta, 29″ x 29″, Vermont, 2022

To get myself back into my favorite fusible-web appliqué work, I decided to create a quilt in memory of an old friend who has passed away. This will be my kitchen quilt, featuring an exquisite French Bresse hen named after my dear friend Henrietta Dickison. I started it in September 2021 and completed it finally … Continue reading Hen Rietta, 29″ x 29″, Vermont, 2022

My New Obsession EPP, 38″ x 38″, Vermont, 2022

Love this Obsession pattern as an intermediary step between Tula's Nova pattern (Alice EPP) as my first EPP, and the ultimate Passcaglia (from Willyne Hammerstein) which I want to do at some point. Loving working with Karen Tripp's floral fabrics, bringing in my own too. I found out about Karen Tripp's new website (TheDIYAddict.com) which … Continue reading My New Obsession EPP, 38″ x 38″, Vermont, 2022

Alice EPP, 56″ x 56″, Vermont, 2022

My first English Paper Piecing piece based on Tula Pink fabric. Nice project, easy to do and no big decisions to make in the beginning. Nice hand work that I needed back in my life. Hands bounce back from the work and strain just fine, so grateful! The top took 2.5 months to piece, now … Continue reading Alice EPP, 56″ x 56″, Vermont, 2022
