Last week, I shared about a new book on English Paper Piecing. You can read that here https://kathyskwiltsandmore.blogspot.com/2019/02/learn-how-to-english-paper-piece-review.html.
I enjoy English Paper Piecing and I hope you will give it a try.
I needed a fun gift for a swap that I was participating in, and the partner I was given likes EPP. So, I thought why not make her something with EPP. As I was going through things, I found some hexies, that I had thread basted and had started sewing together. Just a note, when you start going through quilting and sewing stuff, you don't always know what you will find.
I really liked the Grandmother's Flower patch quilt that Carolina shared in her book. I decided it would be fun to make 1 block from that quilt and make it a throw pillow. Well, it became a wall hanging instead. I got carried away, was excited to quilt, and forgot to make marks as to where to stop quilting. However, it turned into a very fun wall hanging.
So, I made the one block and pressed and starched it. Then I put quilting adhesive on the back, just a little to stick it in place. I then used my blanket stitch on my Lily 550 to applique it. I needed to get it done fast, otherwise, I would do a blanket stitch by hand.
Then for quilting I decided to do feathers and curls. I should have probably done some fillers between the feathers to make them pop. I will do that next time. It feels great to have another finished project.
