Come Join the EPP Party!!!

Hello, hello party goers!! 

It's happening ladies and gentlemen, Mathew and I are very excited to launch the EPP Party Monday, May 1st! The time finally came and we are super excited!
Epp has been taught many times, but our project is not about the seriousness, is all about going at our own pace, enjoy the process, not worrying about making mistakes, have fun and learn without even realizing! It's also all about sharing your process with the amazing internet community to support each other, so there's no room for fear here! 
We want to explore traditional shapes and maybe some new you never did. Also, Mathew and I will be showing many techniques in videos that may help you if you are a beginner, or if you have gone some mileage with epp as well. Tips will be added with each block.

Of course, a party is not a party without gifts, so make sure to join, we have super uber awesome prizes from many friends that want to share with you their love of epp. 

List of Sponsors! 

Thank you sponsors!!

What you need to know to start:

  • The EPP Party will run for 24 weeks providing 1 block each other week. We don't want to rush anybody, is all about learning at our own pace, remember?
  • Every two weeks, just by participating, you will have the chance to get awesome gifts from our sponsors! How? Simple, you only need to show your WIP block on Instagram using the #EppParty.

How to Quilt - Sew an Anvil Quilt Block - Quilting Tutorial

Hello makers!

Here's a little video tutorial for all of you! The How Sew an Anvil Quilt Block tutorial is up and ready for you to enjoy. This time around I made an easy to follow Quilt Block because I have been noticing a tremendous gain of new followers that are beginner quilters and I think this step by step tutorial can help them in their quilt block making process. 
For this block, I decided to incorporate The Denim Studio by AGF, I think the chosen colors are match perfectly with Trekant Rows Breeze, don't you think?

Happy sewing!

Indie Boheme is Here!

Hello, hello and happy Friday!

As you all know, yesterday I received the happiest mail of all. Indie Boheme arrived at my doorstep and I love it. As soon as I received them, I tore open the package and started checking every single roll of heaven. I must say, I was blown away by the mere site of each print, so pretty.

I took so many pictures, I think I went a little overboard, because I wanted to show you all the beauty of the prints. I have so many projects in mind and I can't wait to start designing for the Indie Boheme  LookBook. There are so many ideas in my head and so little time, but fear not, I will manage to complete them.

Indie Boheme has two striking color ways Romantic Boudoir and Antique Dresser. Both color ways are hued with free-spirited colors and prints that make this collection stand out as romantic yet bohemian.  

I have some surprises coming your way very soon with Indie Boheme. So make sure to stay tuned in my social media outlets for more information. Now that the weekend is just around the corner, let the sewing begin!
