English Paper Piecing Addiction June Meeting

Monday was our monthly meeting of the English Paper Piecing Addiction Group at Back Door Quilts in Greenwood.  We always have lots of fun, and everyone leaves feeling inspired.

I'm not good with names and don't know the maker of this beautiful Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses block.  

She also brought this antique butterfly quilt to show.  We are always happy to see anything quilt related.

I wasn't quite fast enough to get photos of these tiny hexagon blocks for Stars in the Garden.


Here is a cute bag done in wool applique.

Becky showed us a gorgeous bright quilt.  She said this is only her second attempt at machine quilting.  She did a great job!

Sandy is working on one of Sue Daley's patterns.  This is just beautiful.  Wish I had gotten a better photo.

This quilt is called Labyrinth.  I love the fall colors in this one.

Here is the one hanging in the shop done in beautiful batiks.

You can purchase the pattern from Back Door.

This is a shop sample, too.  I'm not sure who made it, but it is a new pattern that the girls found at market.


This little basket quilt is just adorable.  The basket is pieced, and the handles are embroidered.  

Linda (I think) is making this one in Sue Daley fabrics.  These baskets are just too cute.  The pattern is by Brandywine Designs and will be in the shop soon.  They will also have the basket template from paper pieces.com.

When Linda and Teri were at market, Sue Daley asked if they would like to bring a couple of her quilts back to display in the shop.  Here is one of them.

Here's a closer look.  

This pattern of Sue's is Antique Sampler. 


And, here's a closer look.

Fruit Tingles is a new Sue Daley pattern.

Marilyn has been doing some beautiful machine embroidery.  


Here is another one.  I just love the flowers.


One of the girls (that will remain nameless) showed us her sewing bag.  I thought I'd leave you laughing.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

So much eye candy! Very inspiring.
When I was a new blogger I recall that another blogger (who shall remain nameless) was making a quilt from that fabric lining the bag. : )

Looks like your group is addicted to more than just EPP! What a wonderful showing of works in progress and completed quilts! That last picture did make me laugh!

An inspiring post to see all those quilts.

Gorgeous quilts LuAnn, and i looooove Sues Antique Sampler, I'm definitely buying the pattern :)

Leanne said...

Hello LuAnn so many beautiful projects. Such a talented group you belong to.

Cheri said...

Oh how fun, I live seeing all the projects. I remember the fireman fabric when it came out and thinking what could I do with that- the bag is a really cute idea.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

How lucky you are to have a local EPP group to be a part of. I haven't found an EPP-er around here ... my fellow guild members all think I'm crazy to wrap fabric around paper and sew them together. I just tell them that they don't know what they're missing out on. ha!

Me alegra mucho que sigas tan animada y tan trabajadora con tus labores, un saludo desde España.Besos!!!
