Kismet Kiss - A New EPP Project


Kismet Kiss quilt - image from here

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.


  1. Your blocks are lovely Julie! I think I'd prefer to EPP them too, even though there is extra work involved. These blocks are reminiscent of some Jen Kingwell blocks, from Delilah, I think? What size do they finish at? How many do you need to make?

  2. that is really pretty - what size are the finished blocks - I like EPP but I find it difficult to hold the larger pieces - but I really like that pattern

  3. A beautiful EPP block and I love the name Kismet Kiss!
