Island Batik Ambassador's English Paper Piecing Challenge. I have an EPP project I've been working on with Island Batik fabrics for two years, but it's nowhere close to done. So what to do?
Then I remembered an EPP kit I bought in Houston a few years ago. It's called Georgia and is by Courtney Reed.
The pattern recommends sewing the finished pieces to a background around the edge using invisible thread. I decided to hand sew mine down instead. I then layered the quilt with some Hobbs fusible batting as I had a scrap piece just the right size! It was slick because the quilt was so small and because then I didn't have pins in the way when I was marking some lines prior to quilting.
TA DA! I love how this turned out. It would be fun to make a quilt with a whole set of them sometime.
Since the quilt was very symmetrical I had a lot of fun designing the quilting I started by drawing some registration lines with iron erase marker.
