August 2015 Monthly Picks!

Happy August everyone! This month is all about our new obsession at Fat Quarter Shop, English Paper Piecing (EPP). We couldn’t help but feature the Queen of EPP, Sue Daley all month long with some of our favorites from her. 

Riley Blake Designs Solids evoke the flavors of so many wonderful treats. Gumdrops, popsicle, salt water taffy, buttery popcorn & licorice!
Besides making our Summer Book Club, Raspberry Parlour is a great book to learn EPP. The book comes with fun EPP projects and also incorporates needleturn applique and hand piecing methods. Definitely a must have in your quilting library. If you’re interested in making the cover quilt, we also have a template set that you can purchase which includes all of the templates that you need to sew up your quilt. 
If you’re ready to dive in to more EPP projects, this classic Apple Cores Wall Hanging pattern is a great start. 
You cannot forget your Fabric Glue Pen when you’re basting your EPP pieces. We love using Sue Daley’s fabric glue pen because it dries quickly and does not leave a messy residue. 

Remember, all of our monthly picks are 20% OFF all month long, so be sure to stock up on your favorites!


  1. I love Lori's tutorial. I made some of those boards.
    The best thing I have done is buy the fatttttest felt from the craft store (on the bolt) and hang it up on my walls.
    I adore these Riley Blake solids. They are so beautiful

  2. I just love Sue's products. She is so careful in making sure that everything is just perfect and I know for a fact that she uses everything herself that she sells for EPP. She definitely is the queen and has worked hard to get there. Keep using her products everyone they are tops.
