WIP Wednesday, the slow edition

At the first of the year I decided to conquer my fears of English Paper Piecing. I got out my hexie shapes and some hoarded Wee Play, and got busy! I was hooked right away! I have been stashing bits and pieces of all of Sandy Klopp's American Jane lines just for this project. A few days ago I started joining my hexies. Slow going, but very enjoyable!
I'm also planning to make Vanessa Christensen's Bloom quilt (which I cannot find anyone on the Internet has made yet), which will also take some time. I'm in the midst of tracing my petal shapes onto the fabric, which is the first step. Another slow project I'm looking forward to!

  1. They look great! EPP is relaxing and I am in the middle of a flower garden that was a quilt along... but now its a "I'll finish someday". I have joined a Get Your Hex On bee, and like the small monthly projects people have sent out! A 3rd bee is forming if you are interested.
