Hi Quilting Pals, I neeeeed to tell you about the hottest new quilt pattern called Zesty.
This brand spanking new modern quilt pattern was just released by Eliane (@patchworkandpoodles) and it’s a totally fun way to try new skills, make cool shapes, and NOT have to sew any curves. (major quilting win!)
Brimfield Blocks – that’s what caught my EPP attention!
As I am somewhat new to the EPP world, I’ll be honest: I don’t really know what I am doing here, but I want to share this journey with you because I am having a blast learning along the way! I learned some English Paper Piecing tricks last month at quilt con and I haven’t been able to put it down ever since.
I saw the Brimfield Blocks and immediately fell in love, and knew I had to try it. And since I am the type of person to always dive right in, I got the paper pieces in 3 sizes: Bitty Brimfield, Baby Brimfield, and the regular size Brimfield. I plan to make all the sizes and incorporate them all into one quilt.
Towards the end of February, my mom, aunt and I visited Nashville for a long weekend to attend Quilt Con. My mom and I had gone in 2017 when it was in Savannah and that event was a pivotal point for me in connecting me with this amazing quilting community. I was so excited to get re-connected with the people I met 2 years ago and to meet some new friends face-to-face for the first time.
It was an amazing trip filled with so many great experiences. If you want to see Quilt Con in action, I have archived some of my Instagram stories into an archive called “Quilt Con”. Here are just a few highlights of the trip.
