everyone. My name is Kathleen Scribner, aka ' Kat '. I
have lived in N.E. Indiana for nearly 20 years. I have
had a serious affection for fabrics and needlework since
high school. I am early retired and so fortunate to be
able to spend my time creating with needle, threads, fabrics
and computer. We are blessed with so many resources and
people willing to share their skills.
I want to share
my English Paper Piecing (EPP) kit with you. This method
of handwork requires just a small amount of supplies.
A pencil case can contain all the items you will need
to have a take-along project ready. You could have a
kit in the car and another one at your TV recliner.
How handy is that!
magnet or small pincushion
are photos of my EPP project which has become known
as the "Queen of Diamonds". The mattress top
of the queen-size bed requires 71 full diamonds, plus
additional pieces to square up the top into a rectangle
60" x 80".
photo is a mock-up in EQ7. It represents only the top
of the mattress. There are still gorgeous borders to
photo is the design wall of the diamonds that are I've
gotten done so far - 24 of them! Only a few more to
can see how portable english paper piecing can be! I've
posted a tutorial to help you start your own diamonds.
