EPP addiction part 2
Here we are again! The girls really brought some wonderful projects to our English Paper Piecing (EPP for short) Addiction club. Sue Daley has a slick method for making Apple Cores that is half EPP and half applique. Marilyn Cullin is using leftover fabrics to make her 2" Apple Cores.
Donna Spain has just started sewing her quilt with 1" hexies, but she has lots and lots glued! Remember, you can fit a 1" hexie on a 2-1/2" square, so you can use the new Moda Candy square packs (2-1/2"), or you can cut charm packs in four. Of course, you can always use your scraps, or (!) get new fabric!
It's hard to believe that the fabric at the top was used for most of the pieces in Neppie's Lucy Boston block shown here. Every set is cut from a different part of the fabric, except for the gold. Beautiful!
Here's another gorgeous block, glued and ready to be sewn in front of the TV, or on a car trip of in the doctor's office.
Barb Scheib loves making quilts from her scraps, and she's going to make minis from the Christmas fabric shown, then mount them on black. She's also working on a Dresden with Christmas fabrics in her stash.
Our next meeting will be Monday, December 10 from 10-12. If you would like to join us at that meeting, feel free, then you can sign up for next year's EPP Addiction Club.
