Free with this month’s issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine is Mix + Match EPP Gifts – a project booklet bursting with fresh stitching ideas!
Super-star designer Ali Burdon has created a set of projects that are ideal if you’re looking for a quick outfit update, or for handstitched accessories to freshen up your home. The classic Lone Star design uses just diamond shapes and is a great place to kick-start your adventures in EPP. If you have more EPP experience you’ll love the Starburst block, which uses all of the shapes free with this issue: octagon, squares and diamonds. Or if you fancy a more substantial make, get stuck into the octagon-themed tote bag, or the zip pouch with diamond motifs – perfect for storing your EPP pieces and projects!
If you’re looking to download our octagon, diamond and square template set, you’re in luck! Just click here to download, print at 100% and cut out your templates – and you’re all set to sew.
We also promised you a guide to alternative techniques for basting your EPP shapes – our favourite method is corner tacking (which is explained in full in the booklet) but there are lots of different ways to prepare EPP templates. Take a look at our handy download for more info!
