A Stitch in Time (English Paper Piecing book)

A Stitch in Time (English Paper Piecing book)


It’s my stop at  Sharon Burgess‘s second book A Stitch in Time English Paper Piecing book tour.

I loved her first book Quilting on the go EPP and made Needle keepers and EPP mini quilt.

I am so excited that I can finally share my projects with you today!


My first pick was Spring Time Embroidery Organiser with my own twist.

I used my upcoming fabric  line Someday collection and gold sparke stripes from Riley Blake Designs.

These hexies are my strike-off samples I got from Riley Blake Design factory.

(*strike-off is process to check the color and any printing errors.)


These cute buttons and pins are gifted from my artist friend Suhobi.




I changed  to clear vinyl zipper pocket from embroidery floss pockets to store my precious buttons.



My second project is Tea Time Placemat. I also twisted a bit and fused raw edges using fusible webbing.


Notions used:

Zipper and fusible batting : Dailylike Canada

Clear vinyl : Byannie.com

Fusible webbing: Lite Steam A Seam 2

A Stitch in Time contains 18 projects, each with a touch of English Paper Piecing combined with embroidery, hand quilting, pretty laces, and trims—all designed to encourage readers to pick up a needle and thread. This book contains projects that will entice crafters to cut into their precious and most treasured fabrics, even repurposing a vintage linen, bringing them to life in projects to share, give as a gift, or to keep for oneself. Projects include: Fussy Cut Candle Mat, Vintage Pouch, Baby Quilt, Sewing Accessories, and more. (Tuva Publishing)

I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Find more project ideas on Sharon’s Instagram @Lilabellelane.

  3. A friend of mine’s family was good friends with Bill Gates parents. Bill approached my friends dad for capital when he started the company. My friend’s dad responded, “Bill, I have known you since before you were born. You have dIfficulty completing sentences, let alone paragraphs. I can’t believe any company you found can succeed….I have to pass.”
