most of you will know that I love epp
(English paper piecing)
and that I am not one for courting sponsors and the like...
However when I was asked by Jessica from Life Under Quilts
if I would like to have one of my quilts in a book about epp.
well who wouldn't jump at the chance right?
Roll on a year and here we are on the blog hop tour for
Quilting on the Go.
two lucky readers will get to own their own copy
by entering giveaways hosted by Lesley @ Stitch Literate
and Lucy @ Charm about You
(see below for dates)
For me it's all about the top of page 48!
For you it's a fabulous book
with EVERYTHING you need to help you learn
or further your epp skills.
I met Jess after she invited me to join her diamond epp flickr group,
I was at the tail end of my summer of love quilt
(what no pictures)
so was glad to meet likewise quilters.
I didn't even know that what I was doing was called epp!
So what do you get?
140 pages of awesomeness!
So many inspiring ideas
with great fabric combos.
with great fabric combos.
Really clear photos and step by step instructions on
creating a travelling sewing kit
Oh and let me not forget the projects!
I rarely see book projects that I want to make,
so when I received my copy
I was surprised how I
fell in love with epp all over again
thanks to Jess's ten stunning projects
from the ever popular hexagon cushion,
to her signature memory quilt.
One of my favs is this cute pincushion.
You may think that I might give a biased opinion
but I really do think the book is a triumph.
If you've fallen in love like I have click a button

UK readers below
you may find the book in the UK has a different cover.

This was my first blog hop so
