I have finally finished this English Paper Pieced (EPP) cushion.
|Finished Spring Carnival EPP Cushion|
For those that don't know, EPP is a hand piecing method originating in England where the fabric is wrapped around pieces of paper to hold the shape for piecing. I find this a great way to relax in front of the TV in the evenings.
All pieces in this cushion have sides 2 inches in length, bigger than previous projects I have completed.
I found these beautiful wellington boot/ gum boot fabrics which are the star in this cushion and have been paired with coordinating tone on tone floral fabrics in green, blue and pink.
I have backed the top with muslin and used a 100% bamboo batting before quilting with simple straight lines following the squares of the design.
I backed the cushion with the green fabric and inserted a hidden zipper.
I love it and can't wait to make some more using this pattern.
Thank you for popping by,
