English Paper Piecing Addiction Group

Here are some photos from the November meeting of the English Paper Piecing Addiction Group that meets at Back Door Quilts in Greenwood Indiana.  

This was part of my show and tell...one of the blocks from my Road 66 quilt from the book Primarily Quilts by Di Ford.

This is one of Michelle's two inch 6 pointed stars.  I'm getting ready to head up to Shipshewana for a quilt retreat tomorrow afternoon.  I'll be bringing my stars along to work on.

Here is another one of Michelle's stars.  She had a notebook full.  They are each like looking at a little quilt.  

Here is one of her quilts that she machine quilted.

And another....

Here is Barb with one of her blocks from a Sue Daley quilt.

Barb also does gorgeous wool applique.  

Here is a table runner done in hexagons and small pinwheel blocks done in blues.

Here is another done with a multi colored batik border.  The hexagons and pinwheels pull all the colors together.  These would make great gifts!

Here is a better look at the table decorations  This was made doing English Paper Piecing (of course).  I believe the shape is a kite, and I would guess it is 2 inches.

Linda and Terri always have a lot of great show and tell.

I love every one of these little quilts.

This one has a beautiful paisley border with fussy cut sashing.

Here is the same quilt with different fabrics.

I think this is one of their customer's quilts waiting to be machine quilted.  Those logs were really tiny.

I love this one.   The nine patches alternate with the dark fabric in the 5s position and the light fabric in the 5s position.  The stem on the applique is bias made from cotton, but the flowers and leaves were wool applique.

This is going to be a Christmas wreath.  The hexagons are 1/2".  

Here is another project from a group member.

There is always lots of inspiration taken from this group.  I always come home with lots of ideas.

Hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Show n tell is always the best part of any meeting. Yours was great. Those tiny 2" stars, WOW! I loved the little quilts. I'm always humbled by all that others get done from one meeting to the next!

Productive group. Live the little Christmas fabric made using the kite shape, makes a cute little gift.

Josie said...

What a fabulous group to be a member of! All you girls are so talented. The quality of the work on display is awesome. I'd give my eye teeth to be a fly on the wall next time you meet. If you hear buzzing..... :o)

My brain is on overload from looking at all this eye candy. And you got to see it in person! Do you have any idea what the pattern is for the stars with squares of white in the points? That would be so perfect for some fabric that I have been hoarding.

Sandy said...

Wow... thanks for the fun show-and-tell! :)

Teresa Rawson said...

I love the little quilts. Rosemary Youngs is on her way to a retreat - wonder if it is the same one you are going to.

Interesting that the hexie's are taking off. I really like the table runners - stunning! So much to do, so little time.

Enjoy your retreat. Will be waiting for more pictures.
