Don’t worry, I’m not wandering away from knitting and spinning! But, the gang in Connecting Threads has become obsessed with English Paper Piecing. It is a fast, easy and fun way to hand piece an entire quilt! No sewing machine necessary! And, it’s portable because you are working on little pieces!

It also turns out to be a perfect baby shower project. As you can see, even a complete quilting novice (me) can stitch together a little piece of the quilt. This is for Teri who is expecting her first baby. Stars and Hexagons have been distributed to people throughout the company – decorative painters, knitters and the quilters. I have to say that is was very soothing to work on my little star. I did the whole thing on the craft night before we left on vacation.
