Taste of English Paper Piecing Workshop

In March our Chapter hosted another Taste of Workshop - this time English Paper Piecing (EPP). Our instructor for the day was Denise Harkins who has previously taught one of our Taste of Workshops.
EPP most commonly uses hexagons and our workshop did the same.  The class project was a cute little clock with hexagons on three sides.
The kits Denise put together were so cute!
Denise brought a couple of examples as to how EPP can be used.  Isn't this pincushion in the silver baby cup just precious?
EPP is most commonly used in quilting - it's a great way to create intricate blocks that are very precise.
Members had lots and lots of mini charm square to choose their color palette from.  Both traditional and modern fabric choices were available.
Our members got busy quickly!
Most everyone finished their project by the end of the afternoon.  We forgot to take a group photo of the finishes though!  
A huge thank you to Cinnamons Quilt Shop for accommodating us - we had a last minute venue problem and they were able to help us out!

what a great group we had for our EPP taste of ! thanks to everyone for supporting duClay and a BIG THANK you to Denise for leading and inspiring us all. I think Cinnamons had a flurry of business with members buying fabric and some EPP supplies. Hope we see more EPP projects in the future from our members. Mel
