A new year of EPP

The January meeting of English paper piecing addiction hardly got off the ground because of icy weather and flooding in the quilt shop. For February people were really raring to go. It was an excited crowd and they were lots and lots of show and tells. Marlene Sowatzke brought two projects: the first one is tiny nine patches above, not English paper pieced.  Below, Marlene is showing her Just Takes Two quilt by Sue Daley.   It's getting closer to completion every month.

Andrea Gerdt is working on various Hexie projects using Christmas fabrics and fussy cuts.

Donna Spain has been working on Sue Daley's Chelsea quilt in beautiful 1930s fabrics and her Dresdens are about done. Jerry Pitts is fussy cutting a project and it's still a work in progress.

Bonnie Harlow has fallen in love with Stars in the Garden from our friends at Yellow Creek Designs.  She has everything really organized in her box and can work on it at a moments notice

Donna Nigh has completed her king size bed runner from Vicky Bellino's book English Paper Piecing.  She wondered sometimes if she would get it done but it was certainly worth the effort.

Becky Wilson and Sandy Warren are both working on the same project from Sue Daley, called Faith, Hope, and Love. Becky's is mostly bagged and ready to be sewn together but Sandy has made a lot of progress on her quilt.

Barbara Rettig enjoys English paper piecing, but her first love is wool embroidery.  She often shows us her wool projects, but she is also working on It Takes Two from Sue Daley, and she showed us the colors that she's using.
