Barbara,

As i said on the other thread these are lovely,

These are my ongoing projects.

 

 

Im on holiday from wednesday for a week, but when i come back i plan on doing a EPP sampler quilt, using my fabric stash, I know some of you have already shown an interest in doing this so i will start on easy ones like GFG, tumbling blocks and work up to things like clam shells, apple cores and dresden plate, hopefully should be lots of fun.

lots of love

Francesxx

I like your fabrics Barbara. I'm debating doing the English paper piecing.  But after doing them in one of the craftsy courses I'm not sure I have the patience.

Judy,

Im not sure its patience, i dont work on them all the time, they are handy if you are on journeys, in lunch breaks or just sitting in front of the TV, the sampler quilt i plan on doing is a combination EPP but then Appliqued on to a 12 inch square, so should move along quicker than a normal EPP project.

lots of love

Francesxx

Thank you Kris for the EPP discussion and to those that asked her to do it.  I do not have any new pics of my flowers but this was taken last fall.  These are the first 12 hex flowers that  I made and most of them are made from scraps that our sweet Barbara sent me when I first started quilting.

 

 

These were not sewn together, just put in the frame so i could look at them and they were protected from psycho kitty..lol  I have several more in a basket and they are all from scraps and are all different.  I'll try to get a pic up soon of progress since this picture.  You all have me excited about working on my GFG again!

Piece, Love, Quilt

Erin, those are so pretty and cheerful flowers. I am excited about EPP also and ordered 2 books today so I would focus on some direction instead of just flying by the seat of my pants. I have enough of what I using for practice and to start a GFG. I just want to have a project that I can use my large scraps for and do not plan to cut anymore papers until I know what size I will need for a pattern in one of the books. I am looking forward to Frances sharing with us her idea on the EPP sampler using different shapes.

BTW, I have been cutting pre-printed hexagons from the moxyideas.com website. Is there another website that you can get pre-printed hexagon shapes? This was the only one I found.

Thanks Bev. I got my template from www.badskirt.com.  I then cut a plastic template out and just drew my hexies on whatever I'd find and cut them out.  I just found a hex ruler I had never taken out of the package...hmmm!  It can make hexies from 1" to 5".  Don't even remember buying it :/    Since my last post I've been getting things in order and set up so that I have everything all together and can get to them easily and take on a rod trip too if needed.  Glad you gals are lighting a fire under me to get me going!  I also have a basket full of yo-yo's......I think I am crazy with all these UFO's (or are they works in progress???)  lol

I don't have any books yet. My goal is a GFG and after that, if I have use of my hands still...lol I will look into other hex patterns!
