A Fall Finish

 Hello!  I have not blogged in so long!!!  Life has been busy.  Fall semester always seems to be a whirlwind of activities!  Work has been busy too.  I have managed to sew a few fun things though.  I really enjoy making small seasonal quilts for fall and halloween.  This little quilt really appealed to me because of the vintage postcards.  They are so charming!! It was fun to make and is really bright and cheerful!!  I just love it.

English Paper Piecing is taking the world by storm at the moment.  If you have not tried it I recommend you find out what makes it so appealing and addictive to "sew" many people.  It is portable, a good stash buster, and just plain good old fun to make.  What you will need to make this block is 1" 6-point Diamonds, 1" Half Hexagons and then 2" 6-point Diamonds for the connector pieces.  I am making this out of solids.  Different colors in different shades.  The connector pieces will be in black!!!  Stay tuned for progress with this project.
I actually completed a quilt top, pieced the back and basted the quilt this week for my son.  It has been a WIP for many months now.  I really need to complete a few things!!!  I am the queen of starting projects.
Definitely not the queen of finishing things!!
I hope you all have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!

  1. Oh my! Love your EPP project. I have started one too and posted it on my blog this week! I love it, but it is time consuming!
