I just went on Amazon and the book is also available as Kindle ebook.  Just wondering what you think of the book as it didn't have any reviews yet.  I am new to EPP, just started on this last trip I was taking.  I wanted something that I can take along on the plane, do as I'm waiting, etc.  I haven't seen any projects yet?  Does this book do that? I also didn't so any pictures of the inside, so I am wondering?

Frances, great idea for all of us when we're not busy.  :  )  Seriously, it is a good idea.  Remember the tiny ones I made, the twins?  I need to sew the second one I made together.  I might make a mug rug out of them.

Frances:
I unpicked the blocks and i had some charm squares i hadnt used so i appliqued the tumbling block to the charm square all i have to do now is quilt and bind them and then i have some mug rugs.

I like the individual blocks Frances.

Very nice. She did a good job. I like the fussy cut bus.

Cute.

Nothing wrong with half inch hexies. I'm gathering a collection of them.

Frances, tell Nicky her quilt is beautiful, love her fabrics and her fussy cut bus' and ocean scene's.  Thanks for recruiting another quilter.  Will she be joining us in the EPPing group?  BTW, here's my stack of hexies for our first block.  And those 1/2" hexies from HELL!  Not a very good pic but you get the idea.

Kris, you must be a gluten for punishment!  I find them very difficult to handle.

Marie,

I enjoy working with small pieces but I might regret it when I start sewing them together.

 

BTW I like you little stack.
