Quilters' Circle - 14th July, 2014

Happy Bastille Day, and what I think we can officially call the middle of winter!

Everyone worked on EPP (English paper piecing) projects today.

Glennys covered some more shapes, then showed us the bits she has made so far:
She also showed us some ideas she has for extending this project beyond the small one she was originally planning. Proof that EPP can be addictive!

Marie brought along this piece to show us. It is going to be a bag for carrying quilts around, and is assembled using crazy-patch style blocks she made some time ago:

Marie also showed us this šúpolienka, or corn-husk doll, brought back from Slovakia for her:
Isn't she lovely! She is doing some traditional Slovakian embroidery.

Today Marie prepared more hexagons for her EPP project:
Notice how all the fabrics feature sewing themes. What will they become? We will have to wait and see.

Vireya stitched together another flower for her version of Geta Grama's Flower Ball design:
Then she laid out all the pieces she has assembled so far:
It is starting to develop the ball shape.

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 28th July. See you again then!
