The book “English Paper Piecing” by Claudia Schmidt was the starting point for a table runner.
The pattern is for handsewing, I machine pieced my top, though.
When cleaning up my sewing space I noticed a string of leftover patches. They ended up as a pillow.
These triangles are true EPP. I sewed them 2014. Read more at the previous post

Hello my dear readers. I hope you’ve all had fabulous holidays.
Here are pictures of my weekend sewing. Turned out a hamburger, don’t you think so?
This was the pattern. Quilts and More, Issue Winter 2012.
And for all thimble collectors, a show off.
As you might expect, I love experimenting with patchwork.
Here are some pictures of my latest efforts.
This 9″ block is hand appliqued. Not sure yet whether to sew more of this pattern. Pattern by Patricia Logan published in QNM April 2004 called “French Twist” is with 6″ blocks.
In April I sewed another litte coin purse. It is foundation paper piecing. Pattern for foundation is from Quilting Arts Modern Patchwork 2014 called “Mini Mayflower” by Katie Clark Blakesley.
And these blocks are waiting to be continued:
I have to finish this EPP-Quilt “Lots of Dots”.
Today I made the sandwich, now it is time to hand quilt this baby. Wish me luck.
If you want to read the history, it is a long one, started in 2011, here are the links (in chronological order from oldest to newest).
a pillow plate.
Quilting is finished. Now I need a push to finish the pillow.
Pattern is from
Barbara Chainey’s book The Essential Quilter.
I found the inspiration for this work in a Japanese Magazine. I took a picture with my camera.
Fabrics are from Moda “Bright Essential Dots”, chosen by my dear hubby. Only the white and gray came from my stash.
Paper pieces are from Busyfingers Patchwork. White hexagons are 1 inch. When I sewed the gray triangles I used two different methods. Some are stitched by machine with water soluble thread. This is fast but you cannot obtain the same precision, which you get by sewing by hand.
This is a picture post.
Minka has approved immediately.
And this is my Amaryllis:
