Nancy Adamek designed this stunning table runner for us and here she tells Valerie Nesbitt all about it.
Enjoy learning about this lovely new EPP table runner project from Nancy Adamek – the queen of English Paper Piecing. Nancy will be sharing the ‘how to make one yourself’ with us over a series of programmes starting in September.
The table runner uses a variety of shapes, which include the octagon, the jewel, drunkards path and the diamond. Nancy will share how to select your fabrics. She will also talk about the use of templates and fussy cutting options, plus how the Jelly Roll can be the perfect size for some of the pieces;
Then once you have made the roses (you don’t have to limit them to three, since this is EPP you get to reuse the papers), Nancy will show you how applique them onto the background table runner (and save fabric!)
The pattern is available to purchase now, and my friends at Creative Quilting are working hard to put together a kit – more details when we have them!
