I have several EPP (English paper piecing) projects on the go and I never seem to find time to work on them. I want to change that this year.
Jessica at Life Under Quilts hosts a "Monday Morning Star Count" which is a place to be accountable for the progress you've made on your EPP projects. It's meant to help motivate people litlle by little.
I have decided that I want to try to participate every week. This will be my first. :)
I didn't manage to spend much time with my 6 pointed star in greens & browns (Kaufman Fusions Mist). All of the diamonds are basted and I'm working on putting together the 6 points of my bigger star. For the star count tally, I'm counting each added 2" diamond. So I managed to add 5 diamonds this weekend. Two of them finished off one of the bigger diamonds and the other 3 are the start of another big diamond.
While I was sewing this weekend, I played around with my big diamonds and discovered that if I flipped my diamonds around 180 degrees, I had a whole new pattern in my bigger star -- and I think I like it better than my original design!
What do you think?
