Slow Stitching

We are headed home this morning after enjoying a weekend with extended family. I’m glad to have my English Paper Piecing project to work on in the car on this rainy morning! I have made 25 of these “blocks.”


And have started putting them together.

I need to decide if I want them set like this:

Or like this:


The purpose of the trip was to attend my nephew’s wedding. I gave them this quilt and they loved it!

I also brought along a quilt for my niece for her high school graduation. 

She liked it!

Have a wonderful day!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

  1. Every time I see one of your EPP projects I want to do one of my own! Guess I need to learn how to do that – it would be great to have a project to work on when I’m not around my machine. The quilt for your nephew is such a lovely color, and your niece looks super happy with her own quilt!

    Of course they loved their quilts! They are both wonderful! It just fills a quilter’s heart with joy when a gift is loved! I like both options for the setting of your EPP project. Such a hard decision!

    If we could vote, I’d vote for the EPP with the centers on point. That has more sparkle to it. The quilts you make for family are lovely. Giving quilts to family is such a joy!

    What’s not to like?! Both quilts are lovely! Your EPP inspires me, every time. I’m not sure which view I like, although the on point version moves me a bit. 🙂

    Love those little EPP blocks! Looking forward to seeing which setting you pick….
    Both of the gifted quilts are great…love the fabrics in both! As I have mentioned before, it is so amazing how such simple shapes can result in such beautiful quilts!!
    Wish we had some of your rain here in Virginia….it is steamy, hot and humid….some rain would bring a welcomed relief!

    Lovely quilts you gave! I like the EPP a lot. I may include a row in my medallion project. Blessings,

    Your EPP project is very pretty. Wow, your intersections are precise. I personally like the first setting arrangement better. Love those quilts that you gifted. Enjoy your stitching and safe travels.

    I love your EPP project…it makes me want to start a new one! Your quilts are fabulous!

  13. Patricia says:

    I love your layout and shape choices! Isn’t EPP so relaxing and fun! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt!

  14. I love this … I can’t wait to see this quilt finished. How big do you plan to make it? You might have said, but I can’t remember.

    We’ve got a road trip coming up in just over a week, so I need to gather up my EPP project so I can keep while in the road … it’ll be a 12-hour trip, too long to not have something to do to keep me busy.

  15. Lovely quilts to be sharing with your family. The EPP looks great either way. I’m envious of you being able to sew in the car. We had a slow 3.5hr journey on Friday but I have to keep looking forwards or I get a queezy stomach, so no reading either (I can sleep though!).

  16. I’ve never seen EPP with that shape before. Hmmm…interesting…. Good luck.
