Loose Threads: Taking a Packing Break

Taking a Packing Break

Today I took a packing break to have a little fun.  I went to the monthly meeting of our English Paper Piecing Addiction group that meets the second Monday of every month at Back Door Quilts.  

These quilts belong to the shop.  Their samples are just gorgeous, and I came home really inspired to pull out some fabric and get busy.  


Michelle's Mom brought this quilt for show and tell.  


She also worked on these dimensional wool applique blocks.  You can see Michelle's box of paper pieced blocks.  Somehow I was having so much fun that I forgot to take photos.  


This Christmas table runner was made by one of the girls at Back Door.


The last few days I've been working on baby quilts to donate to charity.  My Bernina stripped her gears, so it is in the shop until next Monday afternoon.  I've been piecing on my trusty Featherweight and will machine quilt these next week.


I made these two stars while I was at EPP Addiction this morning.  


I've taken photos of the selvages so you can see the fabric I've used.  


That's all for now.  I'm off to another sewing group tomorrow.  

Hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

An EPP group? And to be so close to such a great shop - love their fabrics, love,that they host an EPP group! I'm jealous!

I did get in a few hours of stitching ... not as much as I'd hoped ... had to clean out the closet in the sewing room for the organization installer tomorrow morning.

A break well deserved I might add. What a lovely collection of samples quilt the shop has. Beautiful eye candy in there. Love your EPP flowers; the second one is so delicious. Fantastic fuzzy cut.

Lots to love here!
The sampler with the chain blocks is calling me.
I love the fussy-cutting you have done on your stars.

I wish I lived in your town, I would love to join English Paper Piecing Addiction. I am totally addicted to EPP!

Beautiful quilts!
And as always I love your stars!

Have a great stitching day,

I take it you go to the group to feed your addiction rather than kick the addiction. If so it sounds like my kind of group! :-) Your stars are so lovely as always.
