Thread Thursday 6: Sir EPP Mini Quilt

Over winter break, Sir and I went through our closet to put together a pile for donation. I grabbed one of his shirts off the pile and got to work making an EPP mini quilt with it. I’ve never up cycled before, and this was really fun. I like that I took a little bit of Sir and put it into a project of mine. This will hang on my office wall and will likely make me smile every time I look at it! So I present to you…

My goal is to make five mini quilts this year, and this is the first one that’s completely finished.

The Details

I decided to keep the quilting super simple on this one. In the gray hexagons, I did lines through each to make a triangle. I was able to do all this without having to stop and start the thread more than once. It’s a beautiful thing when that happens!!!

And for the stars made out of shirt fabric, I went with a single outline quilt on the inside.

And because the backing fabric was so fun…

More EPP Please

EPP is my go-to portable project any more. I can easily put all my pieces, glue, and thread and needles in a tote and go. Or sit on my chair while Sir and I binge on TV. Here’s another project I’m working on. This is the Valentina quilt, and the paper is sold as a kit at Paper Pieces. If I’m working on a bigger project like this, I always buy my pieces. I just don’t have the patience to cut that many on my own!
