We especially like to "fussy cut" some of the blocks. It adds a lot of interest to the finished block, and even just planning a couple of the pieces makes the whole block more special. We have acrylic templates that you can see through, and they make it easy to plan your pieces and fussy cut stripes, plaids or other motifs.
A group of us get together the second Monday of each month from 10-12 and work on projects. Join us in November and December for just $5! Even if you've never done EPP before, we can show you how, and you'll come away inspired!
