All Sorts of Nifty EPP-Related Goodies
Last week was a big one around here – All Points Patchwork launched at last, and I transitioned to a full-time day job. Which is why I'm only getting around to blogging now! But for the past few weeks I've been busily writing and making some fun stuff for other blogs, so I wanted to share them here.
So first, the book now has its own website, AllPointsPatchwork.com. You can see more of the book there, and link out to many of my favorite patterns and tutorials you can use with EPP to make all kinds of projects.
Next, I created an original EPP pattern for the lovely Sew, Mama Sew. This coaster makes up surprisingly quickly, and it's a nice way to dip your toe into English paper piecing beyond the hexagon. That center section turns fussy-cuts into wonderful kaleidoscopic designs. Get the PDF and a photo tutorial over at Sew, Mama, Sew.
For my publisher's blog, Inside Storey, I wrote a little meditation on how slow hand-sewing projects can be a kind of map of your life. I know quick and easy crafts tend to dominate the landscape, and with good reason, but I strongly believe in making that takes time. Read the whole post at Inside Storey.

…And for Fabric Depot's blog, I wrote about How to Enjoy English Paper Piecing Without Making 1,000 Patches. The title says it all. And in that post, you can preview a bunch of the project ideas in the book!
I have an awesome series of EPP blog hops coming up, and more pattern and tutorial plans. But I'm still re-learning how to work 40 hours a week while maintaining a semi-full refrigerator and semi-empty laundry basket, so bear with me. :-)
