EPP Addiction Club July Gathering

Yesterday was our monthly gathering of the English Paper Piecing Addiction Group at Back Door Quilts.  Even though there were terrible thunderstorms that rolled through town and the quilt shop lost power, we still had a great time as usual.

First is Barb's quilt.  I don't remember the pattern, but she changed the design for the sashing.  I wish I'd gotten a better photo because the border print and binding are beautiful.

Connie is working on a Sue Daley block for her It Takes Two quilt.  

Michele pieced and machine quilted this hexagon wall hanging .   She had lots of show and tell, but I didn't get photos of much of it.  We sat together, and I think we might have been talking.......

This is one of Michele's blocks made using the 2 inch octagon wedge from paper pieces.com.  I have a package of those wedges and may just have to do one of these blocks.  

Marlene is working on the cover quilt from Handfuls of Scraps by Edyta Sitar.  Her fussy cutting is beautiful.  

Here are some of her hexagons that will go into the quilt.  

Here's another.  I love this fabric.

This hexagon is made from Edyta Sitar's fabric.

Lynette is starting the center part of the quilt.

Becky has finished piecing her Ode to the 30s pattern by Lori Smith.

Sandy has finished piecing her version of Faith, Hope and Love by Sue Daley.

The photo doesn't do this piece justice.  I love the red centers.

One of the girls is actually doing some sewing.  

The quilt on the left is one of the sample quilts at Back Door.  The quilt on the right is an antique that they bought in Shipshewana, IN....probably at Rebecca's shop.  (I forgot to ask.) You can find Rebecca on Facebook at Rebecca Harrer Arts and Antiques.

Shop samples of Jefferson Star blocks.  

This is a little quilt by Red Door Designs.  

This a new pattern by Brandywine Design called Antique Baskets.  Linda has made lots of these baskets.  

There is a plastic template for cutting the pieces for the basket that is sold separately.  There are 6 different handle choices which are hand embroidered.

They finish at 6 inches.  Aren't they cute?  

I bought the pattern and template and the book Shape by Shape by Angela Walters.  It is a good resource for those that want to try their hand at machine quilting.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of our projects.

 I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.  
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!  


  1. What a great group of quilters to sit and enjoy your quilting with. When I mention Needleturn Applique, EPP, Hand Quilting, they all run away (LOL) I need to be up North with the REAL Quilters! Love the post and beautiful work. Thx for sharing.

  2. I love those little baskets--so sweet. And the Edyta Sitar quilt is gorgeous!

  3. Oh I would love a group like this...... Guess that is why I blog and I am lucky to have you share.... Such inspiration....thanks

  4. I did enjoy! Thanks for sharing. I can see why you weathered the storm, so as not to miss such "Vitamin Q", as May would say.

  5. I loved seeing all of the projects! The hexagons of any description always make me drool like crazy and those you've share are no exception! The basket blocks are adorable and I really like seeing the embroidered handles.

  9. I find it oh so interesting to see what fussy cuts do for hexagons. Beautiful things happen!

  10. Wow, talented group! There are so many neat EPP projects.

  11. Seeing all those hexies makes me want to get started on mine

  12. Thanks for all of the beautiful eye candy! Out of curiosity, how much yardage do you buy when you find a fabric that will work for one of your EPPs?
