Introducing the Quaker Acres Quilt: A Vintage-Inspired EPP Adventure

In the spring of 2017, two friends embarked on a journey at the Brimfield Antiques Show, seeking vintage treasures that would inspire their modern creative vision. This adventure led to the creation of Quaker Acres Quilt, an English Paper Piecing (EPP) quilt pattern that draws its inspiration from the enchantment of Brimfield’s iconic field, known as Quaker Acres.

Quilt Dimensions:

  • 32 Block Quilt: 51″ x 68″
  • Individual Block: 12″ square

EPP: A Time-Honored Craft Reimagined

Quaker Acres embraces the elegance of the Depression Era with a tulip design, perfect for EPP enthusiasts. English Paper Piecing is a meticulous technique, and every stitch tells a story. With this pattern, we invite you to delve into the timeless world of EPP, where history meets your creativity.

Your Quaker Acres Journey:

  1. Complete Paper Pack (Makes 32 Blocks): Our Complete Paper Pack, tailored for EPP, contains the essential papers required to create a 51″ x 68″ masterpiece with 32 charming 12″ blocks. Please note that each pack makes one block. These papers, thoughtfully perforated, allow you to break them down into sub-pieces for a scrappier, vintage-inspired look.
  2. Single Paper Pack: Enjoy EPP at your own pace with the Single Paper Pack. Craft individual tulip blocks, savoring each moment of the process.
  3. Window Acrylics with 3/8″ Seam Allowance: Our Window Acrylics simplify precise fabric cutting and sewing with a 3/8″ seam allowance. Plus, the hollow window allows you to trace your own papers, ensuring your creativity knows no bounds.
  4. Window Acrylics with 1/4″ Seam Allowance: For those who prefer a 1/4″ seam allowance, our Window Acrylics offer the same precision while catering to your sewing style.

Unlock Your Creative Journey:

Quaker Acres isn’t just a pattern; it’s a testament to the artistry of EPP, where history and modernity intertwine with every meticulously traced and hand-stitched piece. Dive into this world of discovery and embark on your EPP adventure.

Please note that the PDF pattern, containing all instructions and color pictures to help you make your quilt, is sold separately.

With Quaker Acres, you’ll not only create a masterpiece; you’ll become part of a storied tradition. Join us in celebrating the enduring beauty of EPP.
