    Hi
    I have just completed the piecing on an EPP tabletopper and am having trouble deciding the best way to quilt it??

    What do all you Epp people do.....do you stick with the handwork and handquilt or do you machine quilt?

    I've only hand quilted mine, sometimes a quarter of an inch inside the seam line when the patches are larger, and sometimes outlining a flower.

    The choice is yours. Whatever look you like. When I am trying to decide what to do, I do a sample block to see what look or effect I like best. Very beautifully done. Love your setting choices:)

    Beautiful! The choice really is yours. However, a friend of mine did a table topper like this and machine quilted it and was unhappy with the way it looked. I like the idea of doing a sample piece to see which way you like best. It is a lot more work that way, but then you are sure about your decision.

    I am doing a GFG and plan on machine quilting although I hand pieced. It's just too big to hand quilt.

    English Paper Pieceing. It is when you use paper templets and piece the fabric over it. Lots of tutes if you google English paper piecing

    This is so beautiful. I plan to hand quilt the EPP Dresden Plate I'm working on. What is the name of this pattern? I would love to try it. Because we do not have electricity when we dry camp on the desert in the winter, I like the portibility of English Paper Piecing.
