My first attempt at EPP

Fat Quarter Shop recently hosted a English paper piecing (EPP) sew along on Instagram.  (#fatquartershop #eppsewalong).

I have always enjoyed seeing people make something with hexis.  I am in awe by this quilt from the blog Den syende himmel.   5,200 hexigons!  It is amazing to watch her progress.

Harvest QAL - Final week

I have very much enjoyed hosting my very first QAL on my Elm Street Quilts blog.  It has been a lot of fun to watch the Craftsy download numbers climb each week as quilters download the pattern.

A few posts have crept up on Facebook and Instagram as well.   My friend Kris went rogue and took some of the blocks and made this pretty tablerunner which she posted on her blog.

Farmer's Wife 1930's Blocks: Alice, Ann, Anne and April

I've caught myself up with four blocks today in the Farmer's Wife QAL.

Do you have your copy of the book Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt yet?

Here are my blocks!

This is Alice (block 3).  I heard she was a troublesome block so I took it really slow.   Looks like she still needs a bit of a pressing but it assembled ok.

and Ann (block 4):

And more puppies

Where did September go?

If you figure it out, let me know!

Made two more puppies this week.

These are from Lorna's Dog Gone Cute QAL.  I've made 6 in total of the 6 1/2 '' block size.  Here are my  other 4 puppies.
