An English paper piecing project

My sewing room is overflowing with fabric, so last summer I decided to use a jelly roll I bought years ago (Snippets from American Jane) for my first EPP project ever.

I worked all summer on this project, my first ever hand-sewn quilt top, and found it quite relaxing to do.

Once it was finished, I added a striped border in yellow and white.

The EPP-part was handsewn on the border.

And this is how the whole quilt looks:

This afternoon, the quilt was basted and is now ready for (hand)quilting, which will probably take all winter. I'm already looking forward to it!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. That looks so lovely! I really like the single fabric in each flower centre and having that echoed in the border (great stripe btw). Have fun with the quilting!

  2. Congratulations - your quilt is very beautiful. I love sewing hexies myself and I hope you continue to have fun while quilting.
