Welcome to all, my regular readers and my new readers. Today is my turn to share about this great New book by Carolina at www.alwaysexpectmoore.com. Carolina is a crafter, author, and quilter. This new book of hers is so fun.
I love to have portable projects. I take them everywhere with me, and I love to do EPP (English Paper Piecing), so when the opportunity came to review this book on my blog, I jumped at the chance.
Carolina gives you tips on basting, either glue or thread, stitching and how to do diamonds. Diamonds is one I have not tried yet. After reading her tips, I am going to try the diamond projects.
In her book she has patterns for 10 projects.
* hexie pillow - my current project
* zippered pouch - my next project
* Mason jar drawstring pouch
* pillowcase dress
* hexie placemats
* Grandmother's Flower patch quilt - a future project
* tech pouch
* diamond tote - a future project
* fussy cut coasters
* Dream Catchers
I want to do all of these projects. One of the things I like about these projects is that they can be made from scraps. I cut strips from fat quarters that I had in my stash. My goal is to use what I can from my stash for the next little while.
I am currently working on the Hexie pillow, and the fabrics are from my stash and are mostly Moda.
This has been a great project for me, as I was recently diagnosed with BPPV, a form of vertigo and I was told I needed to rest. Now if only I didn't sleep so much. I will do a blog post of the finished project, so look for "How to EPP part 2."
Are you ready to learn this fun craft? The book is available through www.nancysnotions.com, here is the link for the Book https://www.nancysnotions.com/learn-how-to-english-paper-piece-book.htm and a starter kit https://www.nancysnotions.com/learn-how-to-english-paper-piece-starter-set.html.

Now, for the fun part. I love giveaways, don't you? So here is a fun giveaway and it is easy. Just leave a comment about whether you would like to do a hexie project, or a diamond one. I will choose 1 winner to receive a bag of epp papers. There may also be other little goodies as well. This is good only for U.S. (due to shipping costs).
