If you told me a year ago that I would be making an EPP (English paper piecing) quilt, I wouldn't have believed you. I have admired grandmother garden quilts over the years but have never been tempted to make one. BUT I am. Here is my progress on my La Passacaglia quilt. I have included other penrose blocks from Willyne Hammerstein's second book as well. I invisage this quilt would take me at least another year to complete as I'm in the middle of other exciting projects as well.
Wendy Welsh and I will be giving a talk to Capital Quilters Guild in Lower Hutt, New Zealand on Willyne Hammerstein's La Passacaglia quilt. The addiction to this quilt is massive and world wide. There is a Facebook Group currently with 2.5k members (Wendy is one of the administrators for this page). The same questions are asked by people wanting to make this quilt I.e. Fabrics, templates, papers etc. so we have decided to help.
Wendy and I are not experts but by sharing what we have learnt along the way (including gadgets and techniques) we hope to either help and encourage those starting and to maybe introduce newbies to this wonderful EPP quilt. Venue is Waterloo School, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. Saturday 29th August commencing 1.30pm. Visitors are very welcome. Google la Passacaglia images or check them out Pinterest.
Early stages of mine
A must have in all quilting club library's and for all EPP lovers
If your local and can come - we would love to see you.
