English Paper Piecing Project

Say that three times fast! I know, I said after Brinton Hall that I wouldn’t do any more EPP. I didn’t enjoy it that much, even though I loved the results. But somewhere on our travels last summer, those Honeycomb pieces jumped into my hands. Then I had to get the squares to go with them.

I needed a travel project for our trip and my other hand piecing hexie top is just too big for air travel. So I got these out and started playing to see what I could make with them. I found two possibilities, this:

And this:

I still don’t know which way I am going, but I do know that I will be using this fabric, plus a few scraps from my tub. The prints here are all small so they will work well with these tiny pieces.

I have everything packed up in my Sew Together bag from Jackie.

Want a peek inside?

Fabric in the middle, precut to size, paper pieces in the top pocket and a ziplock for trash in the bottom pocket.

In the zippered parts, I have thread, glue stick, pencil,  scissors, needles, needle threader, and a thimble.

I thread basted my hexies for Brinton Hall. I decided to try glue basting this time. This will be a tiny quilt, probably 12 inches square. I can’t wait to get started!

I wanted to mention that I am not likely to respond to comments while I am gone. I read and appreciate each and every one. And I try to answer all questions. But every free moment over the next week or so will be spent with family. I have posts scheduled for most days that I am gone and I will do my best to play catch up when I get back. I hope you will visit anyway, I have some neat projects to share with you!

  1. This bag is perfect for storing paper-piecing project! And it’s beautiful on top of that!

  2. Ooh, I love the fabrics you’re going to use … and I can’t wait to see what layout you’re going to use. I’ve thought about glue basting, but basting with thread is a perfect way to while away the hours in the car while traveling.

  3. What a perfect project to keep in your sweet All Together bag. Looks like a fun project. I love the second setting you showed and look forward to seeing how you make out with this!

  4. looks like you’ll have fun- I don’t do tiny or fiddly, but it does look like a great travel project! I think I like the second layout better- for what it’s worth…. also: your sew together bag is fantastic! I have that pattern, and one day will make it for myself, my daughters and daughter in-law. maybe Christmas? ha!

    I love your sew together bag! I usually don’t have anything in mind when I start an EPP project! I tend to want a project I can do at night while watching TV! Busy hands!!

    I love your sew together bag. The design you have chosen is the design of my bathroom tile. I have always wanted to make a quilt using the design. Hugs

  9. Mari says:

    That second picture of the paper pieces could look like flowers with the right colors. That would be fun! Enjoy your time with your family!
