EPP Addiction, part 2

There were many more show and tells at our English Paper Piecing Addicition Club meeting.  Carol Decker was just in time for Valentine's Day with her cheerful red and white Dresden Heart.  She's also making the Lucy Boston block bigger using 1-1/2" honeycombs instead of the usual 1".  She might stop at the traditional size, or she might use her scraps and keep adding rounds of honeycombs.  The fun is in the journey!

Rosie has been working on a special pentaring project.  She's making the Baby Pentarings from Vicki Bellino's English Paper Piecing book, using Moda Japanese fabric and sashiko that's she designed to go into the center.  It's a little hard to see, but she arranged the elements on tissue paper until she was pleased with the design, then she's stitching through the tissue with a big stitch, which will have the look of sashiko when it's done.  Can't wait to see it done!

Sue has a beautiful Lucy Boston block to show off, made from the same fabric as Rosie's Pentarings!
