Miniature Grandmother’s Flower Garden

A while back I wrote a review on a couple of new EPP books. For weeks I’ve been working on the project shown on one of the book covers – a couple of hours each evening. And now I’m finally finished!

It is very rare for me to sew someone else’s design. (I don’t have enough time to sew what I design, much less so many other fun projects out there!). This one I couldn’t resist, though. Still, quilting is like cooking, isn’t it. Read the recipe… and then adapt. So my version isn’t exactly the same as the one shown in the book. I wasn’t quite convinced with the design in the upper left corner, so did something different.

Quite a fun project for 1/4″ hexagons!

    Hi Angie, I can’t believe those hexagons are only 1/4″! ¿How do you handle them?
    I haven’t tried EPP yet, but I’m going to begin making the beautiful coasters you posted. I’d like to try the freezer paper technique, but I haven’t found it at any store. I just find plastic film, wax paper and aluminum, it seems that freezer paper is not sold here, so, what can I use instead of it?

    En lieu of freezer paper

    If you cannot find freezer paper where you live, alternatively you can use regular Bond (white) paper. You won’t be able to iron it on, obviously, so instead hold the paper template in place with a straight pin. Continue with the rest of the process as indicated in the tutorial.

    Ok, thanks a lot, I’ll try that way. And let me tell you that I’m making two “Country cups” quilts, one is for me and the other for a beloved friend with whom I sometimes meet for “a cup of coffee”. I’ll send you a photo as soon as I’ve finished the first row.

    […] I decided to purchase this book based on the quilt of the front cover. What the product description does not tell you is that this quilt, finished, only measures 19.75 x 21.75″. And yes, that includes the borders. (This is actually the only quilt I have sewn from this book. You can see my finished quilt here.) […]
