I started this quilt, the third in a series (pics of Travel Quilts 1 and 2 are on flickr), when I was visiting my family in Chicago this July.
this is what I accomplished during 4 weeks of naps and a bit of stitching every evening.
I have been working on it when I can since I came home, but of course with access to my sewing machine and entire fabric stash, inspiration has pulled me in a lot of different directions. But this is what it looks like today:
I was lucky enough to give a demo on English Paper Piecing at the local library group last month and since then, two local friends have started star quilts. Add in Lesly and Becky (who I made the video for initially), it seems like diamonds might just be the new hexagons. So I was wondering, what do you think about the idea of a 60 degree diamond epp quilt along? No rules or anything, just a sidebar button and a flickr group to share our progress. I thought it might be fun.. If Lesly and Becky comment that they're interested, I'll make up a button and get it started (the local girls don't have blogs), and if anyone out there wants to join us, please lmk!
