i have a few cases and even mini bags scattered about so that i always have options for grabbing something to go when i want to work on my epp. there is my large case, that houses all basted pieces and the majority of supplies (not pictured). i have the pink plastic school supply box for when i need a sturdy, hard-shelled travel case. the contents of this case allow me to either baste or assemble as desired. in addition, i have two quart-sized ziplock bags that hold just basting supplies - one for triangles and one for squares. when i accompanied my husband on a business pleasure trip a few weeks ago, i brought the pink case and one basting bag along.
however, there wasn't a needle in my mini bag!
i clipped together 3 triangles, just to say I'd done something, and then i was out of paperclips, too, and that was the end of my session.
so, this is the nice way to say i didn't do any epp at all in the last month. every day as i'm hurrying through my bedroom, busy about my duties, i see the case which sits in there and think, "maybe tonight i'll get to do a bit of stitching!" but then i don't.
that's just the way it goes with epp sometimes. i'll find time soon enough. and there is a party going on to celebrate all the work you have done. that'll inspire me.
let's look at some entries from last month's party:
hexi flower garden quilt that had a humongous epp hexi flower on the backing. this definitely has to be the largest-sized hexi project i've seen to date. the flowers on the front were done by machine piecing, but she now wishes she'd done them by epp. there's always the next one, sarah.
biscuit introduced us to her many and varied epp interests, which she is trying to narrow down and focus on. at 20 now, she has been quilting for 7 years already, making her probably the youngest quilter i've met to date. i'm quite interested to see how she progresses.
paul, the first fellow to join our group, shared his very first epp project, which he describes as "a hexi landscape quilt." i think he's invented a new form of epp!
