A couple of weeks ago (wow, was it really like a month ago?) the DC Modern Quilt Guild had our annual outdoor sewing meeting. I love this meeting, even though this time it made me hate the DC Metro sooo much… What would have taken me an hour to drive, on the Metro was 1.5 hours on the way in to the city and 2.5 hours on the way out. 45 minutes of which were in a sweltering rail car with the A/C out… Arrgh. But I digress.
We have a lovely space where we like to meet in the US Botanical Gardens. I was pleased to be asked to demo English Paper Piecing this time! How fun that was, to have so many other people around me catching the EPP bug!
I brought some bits of fabric for everyone to practice on, and at the end of the day there were lots of basted hexies left behind, some even joined into pairs or trios. What to do with them? Certainly not throw them out! I joined then all together and made this little pouch as a little memento of the day. I’m thinking this will be the perfect size to transport sewing machine and extension cords to sewing meetings. If it doesn’t get swiped for My Little Pony figurines first!
Would your guild or shop like me to demo English Paper Piecing with freezer paper shapes? Please get in touch!
