Member Spotlight:

English Paper Piecing with Janet

We did a little hand sewing with Janet. She demonstrated her technique of EPP with 1" paper hexagons.  She took 2 1/2" pieces of fabric and glued the fabric to 7 paper hexagons.  Then she sewed the hexagons together in a flower pattern.  Janet had a few suggestions on how to hand sew them together such as whip stitch or  ladder stitch. 



SHOW AND SHARE

Here are a few quilts and bags that were shared with our group:
