This quilt is the Mandolin quilt. It started in the summer of 2019, and it is still ongoing. This pattern is written and sold by Tales of Cloth, and I highly recommend it, if English Paper Piecing is your thing.
For me an EPP project is my to-go project, meaning the project I take out of my home comfort, in the park, by the sea, on my vacations! It is super-portable and easy to make.
I decided to use only solid colors, to make a test on my color palettes, and so far it is going really great. I am making the 20 block version, and now I have already finished 17 main blocks, and 2 in-between blocks.
Of course, I knew from the start that this was going to be a long term project (a very long one), since I do not work on it consistently. Mainly I get the itch, every summer, and finish a great deal of the work in a month or two.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!
Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
