Festival of Quilts Part Two & Holiday Project

I am away on my family holiday in Cornwall at the moment with no sewing machine!  What is a girl to do? English Paper Piecing of course!  While I was at the Festival of Quilts I was given a Moda Jelly Roll - French General - Rue de Jardin, not my usual choice but very pretty and ideal to take away and perfect to EPP with.  

The pattern I have decided to do was inspired by some of the quilts I saw at the Festival and also has a Christmassy feel to it.  

I will put it together with some Kona Snow as a Christmas Quilt - seems a bit strange to be working towards Christmas while on the beach!

The stars are made up of diamonds and triangles into that wonderful hexagon shape, the amazing 60 degree angle!  I can get four stars with four strips and am averaging a star a day - hmmm may take a while as I doubt I will keep that up when reunited with my machine!

Here are couple of the quilts that made me decide on EPP stars...


  1. Loving those pretty pretty stars - make sure you sign up for the scrappy pincushion swap! Hope you're having a great time. X

  2. I remember both of those quilts, mum was particularly facinated with the coloured one.

  3. It will be very pretty when finished. The design is so crisp! Love the way the red pops.
