Day 6 of 31 DAy Challenge
Yesterday I promised to share the table topper that I am working on. I am not big on hand work but this is the third English paper piecing (EPP) project I have worked on. For those of you that don't know, let me tell you a little about EPP.
In EPP, you use heavy paper or light cardboard papers that are the shape of each piece. You cut fabric larger than the shape by about 3/8" on each side. Then you fold the fabric over the edges of the shape and baste them in place. If you use thin enough paper, you can even baste the paper to the fabric. The edges of two adjacent pieces are aligned with the right sides together. Then the edges are stitched together.
That's a very general and rough description. As most that know me can tell you, I am not a huge fan of hand work so why do I do EPP? It is portable and I love the geometric designs. Here is a picture of the first EPP project I did. I plan to hand quilt this which I haven't done before. One of these days I'll start that process.
Flower Table Runner was designed by Cindy McCoy and published as a Block of the Month in the September 2015 through January 2016 issues of The Quilt Pattern Magazine (TQPM).
I haven't finished the second EPP project I started yet. I will go back to working on it after I finish the one I'm working on now. The reason is that this is another BOM by Cindy McCoy in TQPM. Starting in April 2017, this 9 part BOM finished up in this month's issue and I've tried to keep up every month. I've been doing fairly well. I finished up the November installment today and have the last part about one third done.
So now for the big reveal. Here is Splatter! through Part 7. Part 8 (November) and this month are another round which will be white and navy. Maybe next Wednesday night I will be able to post a picture of the top finished.
See you tomorrow!
