I’m Crazy…about EPP!*

In January I started cleaning my office and studio and weeded through the accumulation of supplies (fabric, more fabric, WIP’s, etc….) and I still am not quite as organized as I would like to be. I told myself that I wasn’t going to start any new projects until I finished cleaning, but then I did work on a few {small} English Paper Piecing Projects.

I bought this pattern from PaperPieces – I love heart patterns and this one was irresistible. I made three versions of Chrysanthemum Hearts .The first one was pink for Valentine’s Day…

…and the other two were made using my hand dyed cottons. I’m not sure if they will be quilts since they don’t really relate, but I sure enjoyed making them!

Then I had to play with another pattern from PaperPieces, a Double Wedding Ring. I have always wanted to make one of these quilts, but they are tricky. My plan is to make some of the rings using  red/yellow/orange and the other rings using blue/green/purple hand dyed fabrics. This is just the start of the 10″ size.

And there’s more…. This quilt pattern called Wheel of Fortune or Whirligigs has been on my must make list for years. With the curves and small border triangles, it is quite the nasty pattern. I have collected templates and foundation pieces from many sources and finally decided that EPP was the way to go! This pattern is for a 16″ ring.

And here is the last one, I think! The Brimfield Awakening quilt ladies have been all over social media for awhile and I have been noticing their patterns. I started collecting Liberty of London fabrics when we lived in Tokyo and quilts using them always catch my eye. I liked the patterns but was able to resist them until I saw Brimfield Meadows! It is now on my design wall and on the must make list!

So – I’m crazy for a variety of reasons, but I have plenty to do. What about you – do you have a must make list as well ??? What is on yours?

*Sorry about this – I’ve done it again! I said that I was leaving this blog and starting another. Turns out that as wonderful as GoDaddy is at hosting websites and e-mails, I did not like their blogging platform. They don’t have statistics like WordPress nor do they make it easy for folks to comment. Not that a lot of you do, but I never even knew if someone liked a post.

So here I am for the foreseeable future!

  1. Great to see a new blog post from you Debbie. Your paper piecing examples are really interesting. I can see how they could inspire a quilt.

    • Hi! How fun that you are a fiber blog as well! I laughed at all your UFO’s….I only showed a few of mine. I have watched a video of clamshells and have the papers but haven’t attempted them yet. I particularly like the clamshell spilts – such unusual patterns. Thanks for commenting!!!

  2. I’am god you back too, although I was following you but was I ? LOL I have never done any EPP but love seeing the blocks made in this fashion, they are so crips and clean. The hearts are beautiful. A double wedding ring – it will be gorgeous, one of my favorite patterns for a quilt. Your color choice are always spot on, and again so glad your back 🙂

    • I think you went to the new blog and said that you couldn’t comment, so thanks for that.Nothing really works as well as WordPress! Are you doing anything with your hands or working on genealogy?
