|don't think I'd call this EPP|
I think the maker here is Karen Fisher.
this was to look like rocks and it's very inventive in it's layout and shapes.
Each hexie is a different shape, yet they join on one side.
I believe this was made by Beverly Miller
I loved the impact her color placement made, the light to dark placement, the overall confetti effect and edge.
The light ones blend to look like dots are appliqued but they are pieced like all the others
Isn't this combination of hand piecing hexie's and applique charming?
I believe the maker was Janet Finley
Even if I didn't respond to a more traditional quilt, settings or colors, they had reason to come in close to see the hand of the maker. When you do EPP it's not fast, it's slow and deliberate like drawing as opposed to painting. Painting can be slow and deliberate but it can be done quickly with abandon too.
Sketching can be done quickly but drawing like EPP is deliberate, placement of each stroke or stitch is considered.
I took a pic of this because of the details. The overall look was too busy and disjointed for me, but the details are so interesting in fabric placement. Note the fussy cut forest scene catching tiny deer in hearts. Intricate sewing joining different shapes that all come together into a unified top. Each fabric chosen for impact, bright yellow to set off the points that were carefully cut to show the same repeating lines.
this maker was subtle in color but actually overfilled the space with intricate crazy quilt laces, stitching, embroidery and buttons.
Our docent invited me to join their EPP group. Golden is about 40 min away by bad roads but I think I will join them and meet other people as intrigued by detail as I am. I'll let you know how it goes!
