Calling all EPP Addicts

As you've probably gathered by now, I love English Paper Piecing........choosing & cutting the fabrics & even preparing all the pieces to sew together is quite therapeutic, then there's the advantage that your project once prepped is extremely portable.

For a while I've been thinking of creating a facebook group just for all of us EPP addicts to meet & share tips, techniques, patterns etc while we work on our various projects & show that EPP can go beyond the humble hexagon where most EPPers learn the technique. Hexagons will be welcome too of course!
Rainbow Hexies
Many quilt blocks & patterns can be converted to EPP........

Periwinkle/Hummingbird block
Vintage Stars
Starry clams
Variahex or This Goes with That
Lone Star
I know there are a few groups out there already & some set up for specific projects but I feel it would be great to have a small friendly, maybe restricted group where we can all meet & share all our various projects & ideas, they can be purely EPP and EPP appliqued to backgrounds etc as in many quilt designs.....what do you think?

If you would like to be part of the EPP Addicts group on Facebook click the photo link at the top right hand side of this blog to go to the page & hit the join button. Look forward to seeing you there:)
