This month’s book review is a change of pace for me…..
Quilting on the go by Jessica Alexandrakis. Dedicated to english paper piecing in it’s many forms and styles.
This book is comprehensive, from tools and creating a portable sewing kit, through how to clip and sew the various shapes.
She has included multiple project ideas, ranging in size and complexity. They are designed to appeal to both the beginner and someone looking for a little bit more of a challenge.
Then at the back is my favourite section, the colouring in pages!! Jessica has tackled all the different traditional shapes, and the amazing array of ways to connect them together. Then, if you need further inspiration, she takes each section and shows how changing the colours, tones, or arrangements will instantly give you a new look.
Being a complete beginner in the world of english paper piecing, I appreciated the in depth information presented, and the simple tricks that help you become adept much quicker than if you were learning on your own. If I don’t hate hexagons after my upcoming challenge to try them, then this book is definitely on my wishlist.
What’s your favourite EPP (english paper piecing) shape?
