FPP or EPP was today's #greatbritishquilter question.  As I have limitations that mean that I can't hand sew without getting terrible RSI, for me it's FPP all the way!  I designed this mini for a swap a couple of years ago which was all FPP

Day 22 FPP or EPP? EPP all the time for me, dislike FPP #greatbritishquilter
#greatbritishquilter. Today we are asked FFP or EPP?
I do enjoy FFP in small helpings. The top photo is a mini quilt I made from a block in a Craftsy class taught by Carol Doak, I enjoyed making the block but couldn't cope with making more than one at a time! I've also made a few other blocks for bee quilts, again I enjoyed making the blocks but in small quantities only.
I'm not really into EPP but love the effects it can achieve. I prefer to hand piece and patterns designed for EPP can be pieced this way by placing the pieces right sides together and hand sewing a running stitch along the stitching line. The block in the bottom picture was pieced this way.

Day 22~ #greatbritishquilter #EPP or #FPP? How about both!! πŸ˜€ I have to admit doing more #englishpaperpiecing because it's so portable and doing either one is the Only time I'm accurate!!😜 Used @duringquiettime FPP patterns and #maaikebakker Spellbound Quilts book for fairytale quilt. @jenkingwell in the middle and @imagingermonkey upper left.

Repost of the other side #greatbritishquilter for @theoriginaltrash ・・・
Completely inspired by the little coin purse kits from #zakkaartsewingkit but unfortunately they are all sold out. So I'm making up my own from scraps. #scraptastictuesday #bonnieandcamille #epp
Day 22: FPP or EPP? I just learned to FPP a few months ago, so I would choose that at this point. But... I love making hexies and sewing flowers so it's a toss up. I do want to make a Lucy Boston quilt someday. I go nuts over everyone's blocks. The little mug rug is from @katebasti if you haven't tried it yet for FPP. Super easy and adorable. I highly recommend it for a first FPP project. #greatbritishquilter

Day 22 #greatbritishquilter EPP or FPP?  Do I have to choose?  I've completed more EPP but would like to thoroughly explore the dark art of FPP #greatbritishquilter #quilting #epp #fpp
Ooooh now #greatbritishquilter fpp or epp there's a question. We luffs bowf but due to budsmam being a bit knobbly, wonky and *whispers* clapped out... She cant do lots of hand sewin,  so she sticks to fpp mostly, swipe to vury end to see tensy epp quilt she made fur me years ago

Day 22 #greatbritishquilter FPP or EPP. Has to be FPP for me. Have done a table runner in EPP but hand sewing isn’t my thing. Started another EPP project and fell out with it ages ago. These photos have all been posted before but as they are all FPP surely they can be posted again πŸ˜‰

#greatbritishquilter It's EPP all the way for me! This is from yesterday, a sneak peek of what I'm working on for our #miniquiltbee πŸ˜„
Day 21 of #greatbritishquilter  is British Quilt designer that I'm inspired by. Note here how I am completely ignoring the fact I got behind by a few days! πŸ™ this was hard as I tend to look mainly at old quilts and blocks for inspiration, so I have stretched the point and selected the textile people whose work and practices inspire me. There is work here from @annekellytextiles @viv_hensteeth  @mandypattullo @gentle_work and @jessiechorley . #handsewing #annekellytextiles #gentlework #mandypattullo #jessiechorley #viv_hensteeth

Day 20 of #greatbritishquilter is your longest WIP. This would have to be a hexagon quilt that I started from the pre cut packs of pieces from Laura Ashley nearly thirty years ago. I realised even then, you didn't need the papers to sew hexagons together. It's single bed size and needs a border, and that has been the BIG stumbling block to its completion! Thanks @sydneyrosedesigns  and @sarahashfordstudio for the fun of admitting this in public! πŸ˜‚#hexagonhappenings #hexagonquilt #lauraashleyfabrics

#GreatBritishQuilter what a question #fpp or #epp well...when I am on bed rest away from my machine you all know I am 100% #epp but if while well I am asked to choose it's #fpp all the way!!! I absolutely love it!!! It's one of my very very favourite #quilting skills!  And with so many wonderful #foundationpaperpiecing #pattern designers out there...some of my absolute favourite (just of the top of my lupus and not even half an hours sleep last night so -apologies!) @lillyellasworld @jeliquilts @lilysquilts @wholecirclestudio @edwardandthewhitebear so so so many!!! I love them!! So yes, my vote is definitely #foundation even though at the moment I'm doing far more #english but now I'm in the mood to get out a #butterfly and join in #lillyella and her fab competition...so maybe this is it if you aren't sold on #fpp get over to @lillyellasworld or @sariellastudios make and post one of her free butterfly patterns you could win the only full collection that I wouldn't change a single spool of from @aurifilthread #aurifil #aurfilthread #handmade #handsewing #crafty #quiltsofinstagram

@sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns challenge #greatbritishquilter had a great question today...FPP (foundation Paper Piecing) or EPP (English Paper Piecing)?
I'm definitely voting EPP. I love love love it! I would like to try foundation paper piecing but haven't had time yet!

#greatbritishquilter ...no contest here!  EPP for me.  I made this little quilt in 1993 (before i knew not to quilt down the center of sashings). She is 9 x 12 inches and my favorite mini quilt.  I did make a dragonfly fpp wall quilt for my mom once.  It was the only quilt that drove me to tears. I won a blue ribbon at our guild show for it, and man, i deserved it for that beast.

{Day 22 - EPP or FPP} I don't mind either of these - I love the process of EPP and the preciseness of FPP but the one that I'm really growing to love is a sneaky 3rd option - #handpieced ! #greatbritishquilter

Day22 #greatbritishquilter FPP or EPP ... well I take the old #epp on holiday, I read the map and sew πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚whilst Mr H drives.. but I am a lover of #foundationpiecing no doubt... you can achieve such great accuracy. Haven't thot what to use this block for yet... #patchwork #quilting #quilts #machineembroidery #stitch #ilovetosew
Day 22 of #greatbritishquilter challenge. FPP or EPP.
I'm pretty much FPP obsessed and now slowly getting to the same state of mind with EPP ✌

Day 22 #greatbritishquilter - EPP or FPP? I'm definitely an EPP girl! I started my #lapassacagliaquilt earlier this year and it's my #slowsewing project. I love working on it and looking for fussy cutting opportunities in fabric. All #lapass quilts I've seen are unique and fantastically different.

The contents of my hexagons box has remnants from a baby quilt I made years ago and all sorts of others intended for...well, don't know really. Today's prompt for #GreatBritishQuilter is #fpporepp I've only done very small amounts of both but given a choice it would be English paper piecing. Foundation paper piecing messes with my head! And I need to protect whatever sanity I have left πŸ™„

I've never tried FPP (sounded like some insurance company to me!) but I'm tempted to try EPP with this TulaPink hexie template.
*photo from ihearttulapink*
By the way, what is the protocol for posting pictures from other IG feeds, I haven't done it before this challenge and I'm really not sure what is the polite thing to do and being British, I'd hate to offend anyone or do the wrong thing?!

Day 22 on #greatbritishquilter - FPP or EPP. I wholly admire anyone who has the patience to cut out little pieces of paper, little pieces of fabric, do all that folding and little tiny stitches, tear out the paper, and hand stitch the tiny fabric shapes together! Its an epic journey which I tried once (like, one hexie) and decided I didn't have the temperament. FPP all the way for me! #quilting #epp

Day 22 of #greatbritishquilter ffp or epp? For ffp every time I love the ability to use difficult shapes and tiny pieces and get perfect results every time. I love the idea of epp but I am not a hand sewer I would rather be machining or Quilting. @sydneyrosedesigns @sarahashfordstudio

22/30 FPP or EPP - how can you make me choose?!? They are my two favourite things! I don't know why I like them so much - maybe it's the precision (I do have a smidge of OCD). Photo 1 is a sneak peak of something I have been working on (can't reveal all just yet) and photo 2 is my latest #epp project - he's handsome isn't he? #violetcraftepp #sewing #patchwork #last365ofmy20s #greatbritishquilter @violetcraft @sydneyrosedesigns @sarahashfordstudio

Day 22 - FPP or EPP Another toughee. I've had a go at both, but I would have to say EPP is more my style. Here are two projects completed with Japanese Taupes using EPP. The first is a bag from one of Yoko Sato's books and the other is the 'Insanity Quilt', which has at the last count 4600 hexies. #GreatBritishQuilter #epp #lovehandstitching

I'm a couple of days behind so playing catch up today. Day 20 Oldest WIP. This is my Millennium Mystery quilt. One of the ladies in the Quilt group I belonged to organised a mystery quilt in honour of the Millennium. We got a stage a month and she very generously allowed room for us to do our own thing to a certain degree. I kept up with the monthly tasks and had the top finished in time for our December 2000 meeting. I'm ashamed to say it's been languishing in a cupboard ever since while I decide how to quilt it! I dyed all the bright plains myself as bright solids were almost impossible to find at that time and the black is cotton sheeting from John Lewis. I've decided that I'm not going to put it back in the cupboard this time. I love it and it deserves to be finished!

Day 21 and 22 of #greatbritishquilter - EPP or FPP. I am most definitely a Foundation Paper Piecing addict! 😁 This is a selection of some of my most recent FPP makes. I love the precision of FPP and I love the challenge of flipping that fabric the right way. 😊 This brings me nicely to yesterday's prompt for favourite quilt designer. I think everyone is utterly fabulous but Jo @unicornharts makes the most beautiful FPP designs and is definitely my go to for a fun new pattern πŸ˜πŸ’• The Hetty Hare, Geisha and Reindeer above are her wonderful patterns 😍

Day 22/30 of the #greatbritishquilter challenge with @sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns and it's EPP or FPP. EPP for me and I have to confess I haven't tried FPP before but am feeling pretty inspired to give it a whirl after seeing so many great pics on this hashtag #quiltersofinstagram #quilter #englishpaperpiecing #EPP #foundationpaperpiecing #quilting #sewing #hexies
Day 22 #greatbritishquilter  hosted by @sydneyrosedesigns and @sarahashfordstudio. 
FPP or EPP is today's question.
I have only tried Foundation paper piecing once. I saw this converse quilt pattern in Quiltmaker Magazine. My friends daughter loves converse so I made her this notebook cover.
It's far from perfect and using stretch denim for the boot didn't help!
It's on my to do list to retry FPP again at some point after seeing all your wonderful creations.
EPP ...well that's my longest work in progress from a few days ago! I must make more of an effort to organise myself to have it with me when out and aboutπŸ’Ÿ

#GreatBritishQuilter FPP OR EEP?
Even though I've dabbled FPP in my very first quilting lesson but for me it's English Paper Piecing. I like the process of EPP - so simple & yet satisfying hand stitching & interlocking the hexagon, pentagon and the various shapes. 
What I've got plan for these woodland pentagon & hexagons will be patchwork ball ⚽️ πŸƒπŸΏπŸŒπŸΊπŸ‚ #patchwork #epp #woodland #woodlandanimals #woodlandcreatures #gentleforest

Day 22 of the #GreatBritishQuilter and EPP or FPP? I like to cross stitch so don't do much EPPat all but have recently tried FPP and loved the results. I'll definitely do more in future - I'm planning more of these blocks to add into a rainbow log cabin quilt. I got the template for these from the rather fab @3and3quarters

Day 22:#greatbritishquilter : FPP or EPP.  Errrr really really not a fan of FPP even though this joint quilt with @emma_armstrongx won a first place some years back. Great star pattern by Carol Doak but it put me off FPP for life I'm afraid. It was supposed to be much bigger and a straight set layout but we both got fed up with the FPP. we reset the quilt on point so we had less FPP to do. It's just such a wasteful process to me. Sorry FPP lovers but I'll take Epp any day. #quilt #fpp

Day 22 #greatbritishquilter FPP or EPP 
Till I joined 2 Facebook groups during this year I had never done FPP, I now love it.
The houses are from a group #ukblockswap and the Christmas trees thorough a group #iwishyouamerryquiltalong 
The bag is a EPP but a kit from #ashmeaddesigns you fold and quilt at the same time, making it quicker.
Day 22 of #greatbritishquilter @sydneyrosedesigns and @sarahashfordstudio want me to choose between FPP and EPP. Like my children they are very different and I love them both. Don't make me choose. #loveepp #lovefpp

Day-22 hangs head in shame. I have no idea at this point in my journey I have not done either. Further hangs head in shame, and sits alone in quiet contemplation. this challenge has taught me much about how little I know. And how much I want to know 😁sorry for the terrible meme.... #greatbritishquilter

Day 22. #greatbritishquilter FPP or EPP?  Bit of a silly question for me isn't it :D Epp for me is perfect, sit on the sofa in the evenings, then you can slowly see it grow, by hand. But FPP is something I want to learn in 2018!  #fpporepp #eppalways #wickedhexinprogress
Day 22. FPP or EPP? 
Do you love the challenge of complex foundation paper piecing patterns or do you prefer the more meditative pursuit of English paper Piecing? Show us your favourite of the two very different techniques. πŸ’•

#greatbritishquilter FPP or EPP. Both have their place. I like FPP for its inherent accuracy as seen in the cushion in the photo. I like EPP for portability when travelling and for its calmness, slowness and quietness.

Day 22 of the #greatbritishquilter challenge - EPP or FPP.
English paper piecing for me. Although I don't do it so often, I love it for being a transportable hand sewing craft and slow stitching.

#greatbritishquilter - epp or fpp... well so far I’ve only tried epp - I love the potential of colour and handmade loveliness. And also the fact that I can sit on my train sewing all the way to Manchester this morning 😊 But I’m bursting to try Fpp too - especially after seeing it being done in the flesh by @withlovebyfay - it demystified the process a bit so thankyou!

NOT MY WORK - Day 22 FPP or EPP - to be honest I haven't done either for such a long time but itching to try out the amazing pattern by @giucy_giuce with his #moonstonequilt - please check him out, especially his little videos - they will brighten up your morning ..... #greatbritishquilter

Day 22: FPP or EPP. I don't do a lot of either but would have to choose FPP. My only FPP quilt is my beach huts quilt. I have a EPP hexagon quilt as a WIP but I'm so slow at it it is going to be a WIP for some time. #greatbritishquilter

#greatbritishquilter ....FPP or EPP.  Love EPP for portability, any time, any place. For accuracy nothing beats sewing along a printed line. Photos 2 and 3 are my first FPPs  taught to me by the lovely @victoriafindlaywolfe whilst we were stranded on Long Island after a hurricane

Day 21 of #greatbritishquilter and I have to name my favourite British Quilt Designer. I love and follow the work of @lilysquilts @mybearpaw and @imagingermonkey - their work definitely influences me. I do want to shout out for all the Young Quilters in the UK. I teach lots of children (the pic is one of my class pieces for the FoQ) and they have some great style and ideas and very modern takes on design ... today's challenge makes me think that over the next term I'll start to talk more about British Designers to them. #gillymacdesigns #britishquiltdesigners #quiltdesigners #modernquilts #quilt #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #childrensewing #loveteaching #lovesewing

When I first started exploring quilting outside of the 4 walls of my studio, I majorly fan-girl-ed all over these two brilliant women - Heather @quiltachusetts and Jenny @pappersaxsten. I love the bold, graphic appeal of their designs and the glorious colours they use.

It has been particularly inspiring to see Jenny's digital designs - my next step is to spend longer in the design stage using drawing to help me think through my next projects. Thank you ladies! #day20 #greatbritishquilter #fangirl

They each have there own style, where as I have no idea what mine is, so I go at a whim with what I make, pick and choose what ever takes my fancy, and enjoy every one of them. Thanks @sydneyrosedesigns and @sarahashfordstudio for this great challenge. Today's was a beauty πŸ™ƒπŸ˜#GreatBritishQuilter #lovemakingquilts #happysewer

Day 21......Favourite quilt designer

I have to say like with fabric designers I don't know many quilt designers. Though through this challenge I have found lots of people designing quilts that inspire me.

However since the beginning of my quilting journey I have found Kay Jones's @imagingermonkey work the most inspirational. From my favorite quilting book '25 patchwork quilt blocks' along with the knowledge that she is editior of one of my favorite magazines @quiltnow.
Thank you Katy πŸ’™

Day 21 of the #greatbritishquilter with @sydneyrosedesigns and @sarahashfordstudio - Favourite quilt designer. In my first forays into quilting I found Caryl Bryer Fallert, and she has never failed to produce a real treat for the eyes.  Her quilts are so full of colour and fluidity. Really lovely 😊

Playing catch up again! Day 20 of the #greatbritishquilter Challenge with @sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns - Your longest WIP. This one has been going for about 15 years. I adore it, I just haven't finished it πŸ˜‚ It's hand dyed silk. Reverse appliquΓ©d and hand quilted. I stopped working on it because I forgot how I was meant to be quilting the final border, duh πŸ™„ When I actually get around to completing it I will be finishing with beading in the ditch of the reverse appliquΓ©. When I get around to it πŸ˜†πŸ˜œπŸ˜†

21/30 Favourite Quilt Designer - I can't actually decide!! So I found the books that are constantly taken out of our classroom library.

I'm afraid I'm stumped on this one but it's made me Google search so am at least more aware now πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜†πŸ‘πŸ»

Day 20 : #greatbritishquilter : My oldest WIP is probably this Hexy Epp. Infact it's so old we didn't use the term EPP. It was just old fashioned to hand piece then. It was started at least 12 years ago but could be longer. I do have some older projects languishing in the bottom of a box but I don't count these as Wips anymore as I have no intention of ever finishing them. #epp #hexyquilt #onedayiwillfinishthis

Day 21. #greatbritishquilter Favourite Quilt Designer. Libs. You all know how much I LOVE her fabrics.... But her patterns, a whole new world of quilts. One day I will actually make one of her full quilt patterns. One Day! #libselliott #quiltdesigner #colourandlackof
Day 21 #greatbritishquilter Favourite quilt designer.  This one was hard as there are so many I admire. If it goes on the number of books/patterns bought it would have to be Edyta Sitar @laundrybasketquilts. I'm a traditional quilter at heart and love her quilt patterns. I'm not really up on UK designers as I don't buy any of the UK quilt magazines....in fact I don't buy any quilt mags at all. I have a subscription to #Quiltmania as that was a gift from my mum so sorry UK designers. I'm sure there are loads of you😊

Catching up again on #greatbritishquilter and day 20 - longest WIP - well there's a lot πŸ˜³πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚ I did find a door curtain that I started over 10 years ago and still needs header tape putting on - it's got lining, interlining and so on - in fact it's like a quilt for the front door. Anyhow I am hoping that with this new/but old sewing machine (I think its older than my Toyota!!) that WIPs will be a thing of the past πŸ˜…The Elna is so quiet I shall be able to sew away at any hour of the day, without fear of keeping everyone awake!! #elna #toyotasewingmachine

Day 21 #greatbritishquilter - favourite British designer - I have to go with Jo Avery @mybearpaw I love Jo's use of colour & unstructured design. I took part in her Improv 3D  Dresden class at this year's #foq & was surprised by how inspired I was by breaking the 'rules' for cutting & piecing.

#greatbritishquilter - can't live without. I'm talking about what I can't live without when I'm sewing or when I'm at work rather than on a personal level, because I'd start getting mushy and sentimental. I am fuelled by tea and biscuits. I am an awful person to be around if I haven't had at least 5 cups of tea and I average on 1 per hour.
