A couple of weeks ago, Jodi from Tales of Cloth posted a new epp kit on her instagram page. Out of curiosity flicked through to the pattern designer and came across this quilt. I don't know what appealed to me about it, but I couldn't stop thinking about it, so over Easter I ordered the template and epp papers kit.
The original pattern called for the blocks to be hand pieced, which I would never have done. I like how epp means the pieces line up nicely, and stay rigid until you are ready to remove the paper pieces.
I kept thinking that my Densyse Schmidt fabrics would work perfectly for this giving it a slightly vintage yet modern feel, but I haven't has much luck working out a colour palette solely with her fabrics. So while there will be a lot of her fabrics being used, there will still be a lot of other fabrics from Anna Maria Horner and Liberty, which will give it the scrappy yet hopefully cohesive look I love.
They are not the quickest blocks to make, so I am anticipating at least another 3-4 years till this project is finished.
