Last week I started EPPing (English Paper Piecing) again.
Now I understand why people are addicted!
With so much busy-ness, it's nice to sit and let my hands work while my mind drifts, relaxes, finds peace, puzzles and reflects.
These little diamonds turned into this:
by the end of the week. Yesterday I spray basted it onto some happy, yellow polka dot fabric and machine quilted "echoes" for the center star and the colored/patterned fabrics...and twice around the whole piece.
I chose a salmon colored thread to hand quilt larger stitches in the white areas.
This will be a pillow for the den. Around 15" sq when I'm done. I scored some vintage napkins in these colors over the weekend and will use one for the back.
Another WIP is my mom finishing up her 25th round of radiation yesterday! She starts "heavy" chemo on Thursday, and all prayers are appreciated!
Linking up with
for WIP's and Friday Finishes!
