We had a great group at our March English Paper Piecing meeting! After a couple months of bad weather, we were all anxious to see what the enforced at home time had produced!
Karen Romoser is working on Stars in the Garden from our friends at Yellow Creek Designs. Jerry Pitts is making good progress on her Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.
Linda Paulson found a pattern in a magazine, but chose to make it English Paper Piecing style instead of by machine. She cut her own papers, but if you want to tackle a project like this, remember that Paper Pieces will cut any papers or acrylic templates at a very reasonable price!
Linda has also been working on a sweet flower wall quilt, and it's all done now!
Bonnie Harlow is making good progress on the cover quilt from Edyta Sitar's latest book, Handfuls of Scraps. Bonnie also brought in a quilt she embroidered. We like to see all kinds of Show and Tells!
Marlene Sowatzke is working on It Takes Two from Sue Daley for awhile. She has the rings done for the center of the quilt, and is working on the border arcs. Donna Nigh is getting started on a new hexie project. You can't do just one!
Barbara Rettig is also working on It Takes Two. So are Neppie and Teri from Back Door Quilts! Someday, maybe we'll have a show! Michele Hellman is our prolific EPP-er, and has several projects to show every month. She has several projects in the works, including Flower Gardens, Just Like a Jigsaw from Sue Daley, Fussy Cut Friday from Temecula Quilt Co, and most recently the Smitten Quilt by Lucy Carson Kidwell. We have the Smitten patterns in the shop, and if you'd like to do it with English Paper Piecing, Paper Pieces has a packet of papers and acrylics we can order for you. You can also join the group on Facebook putting it together.
The sweet quilt above is one Michele put together inspired byu Sue Daley's Sunshine Lollipops quilt, but using different papers. LuAnn Krug is also quite prolific, and she brings in lots of different quilts for our viewing pleasure. You'll see one at the end of our next post! LuAnn has made the flower basket below that she'll finish as is, or use as the center medallion for a larger quilt. Lu Ann also showed us how she's getting organized with binders and plastic sleeves. The sleeves don't close tightly, so they won't damage the fabric.
Watch this spot for the second half of our Show and Tell!
