EPP addiction part 1
We had our English Paper Piecing (EPP for short) Addiction this week, and you can tell these girls are really addicted! Peggy Peason brought in the bigger blocks in a lot of bright colors, and wanted suggestions for the setting. She decided on black, then she's going to add a smaller hexie to the intersections where she sewed the blocks together.
Gladys Allen has been busy fussy cutting and making beautiful Lucy Boston blocks. I love the way all the blocks look different!
Our Neppie Martin is also doing a fantastic job with her fussy cut blocks. Don't you love the center? Hard to tell where the seams are!
Our Mary Moutschka likes to play with her block pieces. She places the pieces together one way, then takes a picture and rearranges them. After getting pictures of her favorite layouts, she deletes the others, and has a handy record of how to sew them together.
Marlene Sowatzke has the Lucy Boston bug. Notice how she carried the stripe from center of the top right picture out through two blocks--amazing!
Becky Lomasney bought charm packs and cut them in four for the perfect 1" hexie size. She experimenting with ways to join the rows together. After putting several shorter rows together (bottom), she decided to join long rows, and likes that a little better.
