Aurifil Artisan, February Challenge - EPP

Feb 12, 2020

I am happy to be sharing my February 2020 project as an Aurifil Artisan! This month we teamed up with Paper Pieces to bring you English paper piecing projects using Aurifil threads. Since EPP is one of my favorite slow-down type of projects, I was more than happy to participate this month. 

We have been battling one illness after another (it's that time of year at school!) and things just keep spreading around. Once I think we've gotten over everything, something else crops up.

Anywho, on to the project: I chose the Bowls 2 pattern + paper piece kit from the Paper Pieces website and started planning while I waited for the supplies to arrive in the mail.

I immediately chose one of the largest bowls from the pattern as my project and decided to work on the others over the next few weeks. I paired these beautiful new Riley Blake Designs fabrics by Lori Holt with coordinating Aurifil 50 weight threads and quickly basted and pieced this bowl.

All together, this bowl took me around 2 hours to make and was very simple. The instructions in the Bowls 2 pattern were clear and concise and the paper pieces from are always high quality.

As you can see from some of the photos, I was able to use 5" charm squares for this particular bowl. For some of the smaller ones you could definitely get 2 EPP pieces from one 5" square. So its the perfect scrappy precut project :)

Have you ever made an EPP bowl before? This was a totally new project for me but it was so fast and easy that I immediately fell in love with it. I would love to hear your thoughts!
