Block 5 of the EPP Party is officially cannonballing into the pool of English Paper Piecing. After the twists and turns of the Plus and Plus, we hope that the scale of the pieces in this block will be a nice reprieve.
For this block, you will need eight 8 point diamonds and twelve half square triangles. For the free template, head over to Pat’s blog. For those looking for the EPP Party Packs 1 & 2 with Paper Pieces, both are now listed on their site.
Up until this point, I’ve been just picking whatever fabrics I wanted for my blocks that I knew would be amazeballs. But with this block, I started to think about what else I could bring to the overall quilt while making sure it was both cohesive and balanced. Even though y’all don’t know what is to come, this would be a good time to start bringing everything together.
There are no new videos, but make sure to head over to my YouTube for some laughs and stuff.
Uber congrats to @jennifermerkley for winning the prize package for Block 4. The first party of Block 5’s prize is this oooh la la package from Violet Craft.
And Pat has also curated this wonderful 24 FQ Bundle of her fabrics. Talk about drool-worthy!
So keep on keeping on! And don’t forget to use the hashtag #EPPParty with your progress posts on Instagram to be eligible for the prize.
