Wonderful Wednesday #75: Emma Jones

Here's a bit of embroidered English Paper Piecing, courtesy of Emma Jones or Vintage Sewing Box, as she is known on her blog and on Instagram @vintagesewingbox. Isn't her work gorgeous? I love the floral fabrics and lovely colors she chooses for her EPP projects.

I love that Emma makes use of every scrap of her fabric, no matter how small... like this teeny, tiny hexy pincushion!!!

Another day, another scrappy hexagon project! Today I’m joining Larisa @stitchingnotes and Lauren @mollyandmama for the weekly #sipteaandepp party. Last week was one of my favourite topics, embroidery and epp, and this week is another of my favourite topics, hexies! I have a lot of hexie projects on the go at the moment. This one is my smallest yet, quarter inch hexies, and it’s going to be a tiny pincushion to take out and about for epp projects. I love how it’s even possible to fussy cut tiny hexies, swipe to see. I join my hexies by using a whip stitch, I haven’t tried any other techniques so I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s tips today. Have you tried quarter inch hexies? #englishpaperpiecing #epp #eppaddict #hexies #hexielove #sewmuchfun #handstitched #tinystitches #slowstitching #quiltersofinstagram #patchwork #tinyfloralsanonymous #creativehappylife #createeveryday #makersgonnamake #aurifil #tinyhexies #scrappyproject #iquilt

Swipe to see just one of the teeny tiny hexagons sitting on her fingertip!

When your trainers match your quilt... I think my Liberty obsession is going too far... I’m joining @stitchingnotes and @mollyandmama this morning for #sipteaandepp and I’m working on my large hexagon Liberty quilt and thinking about how I’m going to join the flowers. I’m using 1 and a half inch hexagons and I love how fast it is growing. This week’s topic is storage. I don’t have any fancy storage systems for epp, I typically use a little box to carry everything in or this lovely case that Heidi @bessaboostudio made for me which is perfect for taking everywhere I go and it makes me so happy. Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s projects and storage. Have a great day everyone #epp #eppeverywhere #quiltersofinstagram #hexies #hexielove #libertylove #golaclassics #patchwork #hexagonquilt #slowstitching #createeveryday #sewmuchfun #sewingastherapy #grandmothersflowergardenquilt
