I love English Paper Piecing...( think I've mentioned it before ), I also fell in love with this quilt made by Vreni of Oops-Lah using EPP.
Her quilt top was constantly in my head after I've read that post! I emailed her a few days later and she was kind enough to share the sizes, shapes and fabrics used to make her Tessellation blocks. She gave me a link for an online store ( which carries both paper and acrylic template - used for fabric and fussy cutting ) too. Her kind gesture is truly appreciated.
These are the blocks I've made so far and they measure at 11" in diameter :
I love fussy cutting and to get 6 or 12 cuts of the same design is quite a challenge when the fabrics you have are fat quarters / half yards of big prints with a very few repeats! I was hoping to get more blocks made but there were just not enough basted shapes to make up for complete blocks and some coloured shapes just doesn't compliment the other.
Anyhoo, I am in no hurry to finish them as I am thoroughly enjoying the whole process of experimenting and searching for wonderful fabrics to use. I have not applique the blocks to the background fabrics yet but will do so after I've pieced the remaining blocks.
Fyi, these blocks were made before the start of Handstitched Class and I am so looking forward to working on them some more after the class has ended. I am no good at working on more than 2 projects at a time and I envy those of you who can!!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
