Quilting On The Go! blog hop and GIVEAWAY

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**

I'm so thrilled to be part of this exciting blog hop to share this awesome book by Jessica:


I bought my copy last week and trust me this is an excellent book about English Paper Piecing. I'm still fairly new to EPP and I've learnt so much from reading it. Quilting On The Go! is not only a great introduction for those who've never done any EPP but it full of brilliant projects that everyone will love. One of my favourite parts is how she explains all the variations and possibilities of EPP shapes - I have added lots of ideas to my 'to sew' list.
In the past year I made a hexie cushion (there is a pattern for similar in the book!) and a car seat quilt:


And I've been working away at my Rose Star quilt... slowly slowly... picking it up every now and again




One of the many fabulous reasons to EPP is it's portability - you really can take it anywhere and it is so relaxing to be able to sit outside and sew on those rare sunny days in England!

I was having a conversation with my husband, he thinks I look beautiful,
I think I look like a dork.

I was hoping to have my most recent EPP project finished to share with you today but I think I was a little optimistic, I've been busy with other necessary sewing, and have only got this far:



It's going to be a cushion and I'm planning on hand quilting it.


I'm pretty in love already and enjoying taking my time... 


after all EPP isn't a race.

don't EPP and drive ;)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Oh, you are pretty! And all your EPP projects are lovely! Liberty is perfect for these little projects, isn't it! Thanks for the chance to own a copy of this book!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I have only done one EPP project and it was quite satisfying but I will need to embrace the 'it's not a race' attitude for my next one :) And you look beautiful - not a dork!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Love all your projects - but especially the Rose Star quilt - I must get started on one of these! Thanks for sharing.

  8. that last photo makes me giggle! Love the epp (and you don't look like a dork at all!)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ha, take all the compliments you can get! My husband doesn't notice anything. Your Rose Star quilt is beautiful ( the others aren't bad either!)

    ReplyDelete
  10. That sounds like a must have book!! I love your Rosé star blocks, and that liberty is a starburst of yumminess! I think the dork photo is beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Your projects are beautiful! I'm just learning about epp, and it looks like fun.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I just started EPP, uh, like last Friday (I got sucked in to those beautiful rose star blocks!) I can't wait to get my hands on this book :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. This sounds like such a fun book. And I would love to learn to paper piece. jareno0919 @gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love the fabrics you've chosen. And the variety of projects goes to show the addictive nature of EPP, its just so much fun. :) Eddi

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you for this opportunity. I am totally hooked on EPP, but have not expanded out past the hexagons. I think this might help broaden my horizons!!! I really like the combination of the liberty prints and architextures

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your projects. I have never done EPP so time to start! rhoystevens@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would love to win this book! I just started EPP hexagons and would love to learn about the other shapes I could EPP. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  18. Your Rose Star quilt is jaw-dropping--the combo of fabrics you're using is so modern, but the color choices are so timeless. And you DO look lovely in your photo! (I appreciate it when quilt bloggers share a photo of themselves, I like to see faces, too!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the car seat quilt and your latest project! Can't wait to see it quilted!

  23. Listen to your husband, you do look beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lucy, your EPP is beautiful and so are you! I've always wanted to give EPP a try, though my hands already cramp up when I hand-stitch the binding on a quilt so I've worried about doing more damage with lots of hand stitching. Does that happen to you or do you just do it such small amounts that it's not an issue?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love EPP! I've only one project so far (The Pelt, http://www.flickr.com/photos/24334738@N07/9054405564/), and it's hexies and largely "unplanned", but I want to try other EPP quilts, too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have three EPP projects going right now--hah! I actually got a chance to browse the book in person. My MQG leader's hands and now-finished hexy quilt are on the cover and throughout the book. She brought it to Saturday's meeting--I so want it now :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. All your projects are great. I would love a chance to win the book and be able to make such cute things.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love epp. I recently finished a 126" x 102" gfg quilt made with 1" hexies and would love this book for some inspiration for my next project. It really does go everywhere. Tae Kwon Do, swimming lessons, long drives, doctors appointments, even Jamaica although the locals didn't understand what a quilt was when I was asked what I was doing! Parts of mine went everywhere for two years.

    ReplyDelete
  29. LOL, no one should definitely not EPP and drive. EPP looks like a lot of fun and car time would be a great time for me to do some. Alas, I have to do most of the driving as my husband either falls asleep or succumbs to his ADD and starts looking at everything but the road. Arg. Thanks for sharing and your EPP looks fabulous and very precise.

  58. Seeing your Rose Stars quilt reminds me that I should pack my Grandmother's Flower Garden pieces for an upcoming trip. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Your husband is right - you are beautiful. Of course, you also deserve that stylish new blue automobile which you now ride. mlwright29@hotmail.com
    I use a cobbled method of EPP for making hexies. It would be wonderful to learn the proper method of EPP, shapes other than hexagons, and a real quilt pattern with finishing instructions. Thanks for that chance. These patterns are lovely. Now I need to start thinking about your Rose quilt too.

    ReplyDelete
  60. i have yet to jump on any quilting bandwagons, but i am in on this one! portability is the key attraction. that and your liberty star. i'm swooning!

    on the personal side, you, lady, are quite lovely yourself. i've been picturing you as a blonde, though? i thought that's how you looked in the profile pic. either way, you're a pretty picture. especially with needle in hand. =) my husband thinks i'm pretty and knows i'm a dork, so they are not necessarily mutually exclusive. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love the look of your liberty diamond cushion. I just got a charm pack despite my self imposed fabric ban (whoops) and now know what to make for my mum for her birthday! Thank you!

    Also thanks for the chance to win this book. It looks like something I need in my life. I was sewing hexies on the train this morning and the commute flew by.

    ReplyDelete
  82. You do not look like a dork! I always am critical of pictures of myself. And your EPP is so perfect. I'm working on a hexagon project. Don't know what it will end up as. At the rate I'm going, it will be done in 2020... maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  83. This is a fascinating books, I would love to read through it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think your husband is right. You don't look like a dork. I really like the star block you are making. I have made a lot of hexagons, but I haven't tried to make these. I would really love to have this book. Thank you for a chance to win it.

  97. I like your comment "EPP is not a race". It is slow going, but after 9 months, I have a pile of completed hexagons, and a few flowers I have put together. It is very relaxing to do while watching TV with the family, or while waiting for the kids at activities, or that long wait at the doctor's. I do believe it helps to keep my blood pressure down at the doctor's office.

  111. My husband and his mother first introduced me to EPP around five, maybe six, years ago. I didn't have a sewing machine and really wanted to make my sister a quilt for her birthday that year. Needless to say, I was over ambitious and it was a few years before she got the quilt!

  139. EPP is awesome :) I've been working on some stars with Christmas fabric for two Christmases... it'll get done one of these years! I even took it on vacation with me a few weeks ago - Christmas fabric and the beach are a weird combination!

  141. I love your WIP with the Liberty scraps! I like EPP and definitely want to get this book. I've only done hexagons so far and would really like to try some other shapes.

  149. Thank you for the chance to win -- I'd love to attempt EPP. It looks like fun! Altho I'm not sure I need another addicting sewing-related hobby...

  150. I've never done EPP, being fairly new to the quilting scene. Plus, I'm not a very patient quilter. But the idea of portability is very appealing to me! Also, the idea of fussy cutting tiny scraps sounds like fun!

  151. Looks like a great book. I'd love to give EPP a try!

  152. I love Epp ing and books, and the photo of you. You do NOT look a dork - you look kind of wistful!

  153. This looks like an awesome book, and I love your liberty & architextures pillow coming along!

  154. Can't wait together my hands on this book. I have 2 EPP projects on the go at the moment and they take turns living in a little suede clutch in my purse. I keep my threads on floss cards so they are flatter and my thread and needles are in a little metal card box. It works so well for me.
    Thanks

  155. I checked and could not see if I had left a comment before.... But I love the whole project on the go!!!

  159. I love what you are working on now, the Liberty fabrics are so gorgeous in your EPP block, it will be a beautiful cushion.

  160. My husband started chemo a couple weeks ago, and EPP is a fabulous project for me to take along for me not to get bored while I keep him company for the 5 1/2 hours it takes. I'm working on 3/4" hexies today.

  161. That is gorgeous. Really neat and stunning. jennylarking@gmail.com

  162. Your WIP is gorgeous, love the precise-ness of your points. I've only done one epp project and that was a small amount of hexies for a cushion. Really enjoyed it but haven't had the courage to try anything further. Would love to win this book, it could just be the push I need to try something more adventureous. Thanks for the oppourtunity - esyme74@gmail.com

  163. I'm in the middle (10 months) of an EPP Hexie lap quilt. I like it because I can pick up and put down with no tension issues- which is why I gave up knitting! I'm not sure how to work out if I'm a no-reply blogger, must find out. Thanks for the chance to win :-)

  164. I've only recently discovered hexies, and I fear I am addicted! Your stuff is fab. 😃

  170. Your rose star quilt is a real stand out! The pieces in your future cushion are so perfect. I wonder if doing by hand makes it easier to get things lined up properly....

    Thank you for putting my name in the hat for the drawing!
