EPP and Hand Piecing Quilts

How much do I love EPP (English Paper Piecing)?  Lots and lots and lots.  Hand Piecing?  Tried it once for one quilt and that was enough for me.    I found EPP and that was it, case closed.

"Lover's Knot" .... my one and only hand piecing quilt (block from Electric Quilt).

"Sky Jewels" (Quilt It for Christmas 2006 magazine - designer Gail Cole of Odessa, Texas)

Embroidered Flowers on EPP (block from Blockbase)

 Small Klosjes (block from Blockbase)

 I loved making Small Klosjes so much that a bigger one just had to be made!

"Flowers in a castle garden" (photo from a magazine).

"An Old Fashion Garden" (leftover hexagons from above quilt and embroidery from "Beautiful Botanicals" by Deborah Kemball)

"Hexie a go-go"

This is the start of when my EPP quilts were machine quilted by a long armer.  If I wanted to enjoy my quilts, then they had to be machine quilted.  Life is too short to have my quilts sit as tops on a shelf.

"A Garden of Kites!"  Partly EPP and partly machine pieced. (pattern from Electric Quilt)

  "Cherry on Top" (pattern from a blog that no longer exists)

  "Oh Wonderful, Summer's Here!" (pattern from Blockbase)

There are more EPP tops that are waiting to go to a long armer for machine quilting and they will be added to this page as they are finished.

Are there more EPP projects already in the works/or as ufo's?  Oh yes ...... there are!
