English Paper Piecing

Sooo, several years ago hexies were all the rage at the shop.  Everyone had portable project bags organized, and we were running a weekly sit-and-sew social activity.  As a senior staff member, I was expected to support/participate in/be fluently knowledgeable about everything that was going on ... so I had several hexie projects started also.  After a while, a new favorite fad came along, and my hexie stuff went into hiatus in the closet.  And then when I retired, it came home with me and settled into a different closet here.

Recently I read about an EPP project that intrigued me, and on a whim I ordered the papers.  Today I finally took the time to delve into it -- unearthed my EPP supply kit, considered fabric and color options, etc -- and I'm ready to undertake Phase II of my  EPP Experience.  This may take a while!

I'm seriously tempted, too :D I never stopped EPP'ing (really love those hexies) but now this special design opens another exciting window ... (as well as POTC, which is still on my to-do list).
Ca't wait seeing your selected colors & fabrics, Jeanne !

ENJOY your sewing,

I didn’t catch the EPP bug but sure saw a lot of pretty designs. That one is very different. Enjoy!
