She takes takes hexagons and re-mixes them to make fresh modern quilts. Like this union jack (yes, I love this quilt).
Or this funky quilt.
The other great EPP book out right now is Feathering the Nest by Brigitte Giblin who mixes all kinds of EPP projects with a lovely vintagey feel.
So after some browsing these books and internet chatting and mixing up ideas, I've come up with two summer EPP projects. The first is a variation on Katy's Spring Carnival pattern made into something not a million miles from my favourite quilt circles (Georgetown Circles) so I'm going to call this quilt Georgetown Carnival. If anyone wants to play along with me on this one, you can get a template set from Katy's etsy shop here and you can download printable templates from a link from the tutorials page on her blog which takes you here. I'm going to make this quilt from vintagey fabrics - Curio from Basic Grey, Etchings from 3 Sisters, maybe some French General wovens, all mixed with some creams and greys.
The second EPP project will use equilateral lozenges which I have drawn up on my iPad using Touchdraw and will be a much brighter project - again scrappy but this time bright scraps against a pale background. If anyone fancies playing along with me on this one, let me know and I'll make the lozenge template available to you. I think I will call this one Fruity Lozenges.
And finally it's July, the time of year when Christmas fabrics ship out to shops and need to be snapped up. And with that in mind, I've bagged some of Aneela Hoeys new Xmas line, Cherry Christmas for a secret project which I'll be able to show you when Christmas is a bit closer.
