I think the EPP is being used mostly where you have Y seams. It's the only kind of piecing that is not more easily done by machine. It CAN be done, but it's tricky, so a lot of people prefer EPP. This is probably why everything you see is all hexagons and triangles - those make for nonstop Y seams.

If you're "only" seeing straight line quilting, do a google image search, keep digging. I have seen some beee youuuu teee ful quilting done on EPP quilts, from lovely baptist fans to gorgeous custom quilting. Here's just one example:

I can't wait to see what you come up with! ☺️
