English Paper Piecing

Since January of 2022 I have been working on technique that I had forgotten about – EPP!  It’s been a while, but I stumbled upon Tula Pink’s Nova pattern and I am hooked!

The first one is on the right below, it’s my Alice EPP.  It took me about 2.5 months to finish the top, using Tula’s Curiouser and Curiouser fabric line. I plan to put this on the wall in the play room in my house.  I think my nieces and nephew will love it.  This image is just the completed top, not yet quilted.  I’m thinking of double-batting this quilt just like Tula does, to make the quilting pop and to help it hold up it’s shape when I hang it.

I’m currently working on piecing my second EPP quilt seen above on the left – My New Obsession I’m calling it! It’s from chef Karen Tripp, the pattern is called Obsession. It’s an intermediate pattern.

I’ve gone ahead now that it’s May and spring is really in the air, and purchased my next EPP project: Fiesta Gitana by Willyne Hmmerstein in her Millefiori Quilts 4 book. I’ll post all about that when it comes in and I start working on it. So exciting!
