English Paper Piecing Patterns. I am making a Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt for my 2 sons, and finishing a Tumbling Block Quilt my late sister-in law started and gave me to finish out of neckties. Never heard of this Planning a quilt, this may be the direction I choose.
I've always wondered about EPP techniques, and lately I've had a crazy notion to do a mrs. Your tutorial helped me visualize it and I'm really thrilled to try mrs billings coverlet -- someday.
I find your blog so helpful and cheery. Didn't read it as regularly as I should so only caught up with this entry today -- months after you had penned it.
Makes me itch to start something small! However my hand sewing leaves a lot to be desired and I always look to see if there is a machine sewing alternative. I wish I had your patience. I have only just found this blog.
Thanks so much for a wonderful article. I am just about to go on maternity leave and wanted a new craft project that I could pick up and put down as and when I had a spare 15 minutes and have been reading books about quilting.
This have given me a real push to start NOW. I have some small projects lines up and so will be off to the shops tomorrow to get the last few bits I need. EPP here I come. I am brand spankin' new to EPP and am so addicted already! I tried cutting my fabric while holding my cardstock template in my hand and found that my fabric was cut too lean. So, I've switched to plain old squares and made them a bit bigger than is probably necessary. However, I feel like it's kind of like training wheels.
I can always cut them a bit leaner once I am truly experienced. Thank you SO much for sharing your experience with us! I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to thank you for creating such a helpful tute!
I was considering giving EPP a try and you've convinced me! A bubble bath bath every morning after everyone has left the house for work and college and the dog has been walked.
I also indulge in lots of lovely smelliest to put in. I have recently started EPP and use cereal packets to make my templates. I had no idea you could get glue pens to help!! I would love to win this goody bag. I do love a draw string bag. The mixing up of the patterns creates such a cute effect! And your cat looks adorable with it! I would like to weigh in on thread. I have tried many types and here are my top three: Comes in a ton of colors and is now my go-to EPP thread.
Just my considered opinion, for what it is worth. I am new to English Paper Piecing. I have only just managed to make a Hexagon. I will be reading your post many times before I start stitching. Do I use wadding and if so how do I hold it in place?
I'm slightly daunted by the edging too, it seems like a mammoth task to hand stitch a one, anyhow i have another 4 months to complete this project so I will be checking back to your site regularly, thank you! Hello Nanny, I think you may find this tutorial really useful, as although the quilt top is constructed in a different way, everything else remains the same in terms of turning it into a quilt: Have followed the first 3 tutorials and am building a quilt.
Started with hexies and have now begun diamonds. Had been itching to do this sort of hand sewing patchwork for as long as I can remember, since seeing those on the beds of my late mother's best friend. I think she may have showed me a part made one and I could never figure out why it had paper in it. All such a mystery. Then about 10 years ago, my daughter went to the US and bought me a little bag of 'fat quarters'. Now at last with a broken foot, i have been forced to sit down and take a break ha from my 'day job' as a seat weaver and with the glories of the internet have found everything I need.
Unfortunately, I am now addicted and although I have a huge cupboard full of fabric, have had to go and buy more beautiful cotton quilting fabric to feed my addiction. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a message - it's always really lovely to hear from people. I now tend to reply within the comments section, so please do check back if you've asked a question or wish to chat.
