Quilted

Back in April I completed another small project. Took a picture, gifted it and then forgot all about it.

It started as a small hand project… Jan, my sponsor when I arrived in South Africa, (see this post) and friend, that now lives a few miles south and east of me went on a ‘Save my Sanity’ outing while residing in the hotel upon our return to the USA. She took me to Web Fabrics, which at the time was a bit of a drive, but now is my LQS!!!

Anyway, I stumbled upon a basket of English Paper Piecing pre-cuts and fabric packs…. and picked up a couple of them…. in the red, green and beige color ways. It they turned in to this.

A holiday table topper. I gifted it to my Sister in Law that lives here as well, for all the hospitality she has shared with us. From getting us out of the hotel nearly every weekend while waiting for the house to close and celebrating all the holidays at her home.

Hand pieced, machine quilted, batiks with cotton batting and backing.

More later….

Nice! I have not tried English Paper Piecing. Do you enjoy it?

I love those colors. It sounds like a nice calming project to get you through that hectic period of time.

Now that is one fascinating piece - depending how you focus your eyes there are different shapes!

And don't you believe it, my small collection of EPP templates have gone missing in the move upstairs along with some other stuff... The DH found some missing...

Love the tabletopper, love the colors. May have to go back to doing a little EPP. Thank you for sharing.
