EPP Addiction part 2

As our excited teachers and club members gathered together for our monthly EPP addiction club, Marty shows one of the newest EPP shapes, the Dresden Heart.  Marty's version is in red and white for Valentine's Day, alternating darks and lights, and features yo-yo's in the center.

Marlene Sowatzke is laying out her Lucy Boston block (Patchwork of the Crosses), while Donna Nigh shows off the progress she's making on her Just Judy quilt (front cover of English Paper Piecing book by Vicki Bellino).

We have two club members from Louisville!  Michelle Hellman was inspired by Vicki Bellino's PentaRings for Baby, and created her own wonderful version!  Using pink and cream backgrounds, she collected Moda fabrics from Blackbird Designs and placed her PentaRings on point.  She also has six pointed stars (diamond paper pieces) on a black background for her show and tell.

Her mom, Barbara Rettig, is working on a beautiful quilt from Sue Daley's book New English Paper Piecing called Wellington.  She's fussy cut the jewel shapes, and inset diamonds into the inner corners.

Send pictures of your latest EPP projects and you can join in with us as we share our addiction!
