EPP Progress

Above is my current progress on my English paper pieced penrose tile quilt.  Currently I have 109 diamonds in two patches.  The progress on this quilt is very slow.  I keep it in the van so that I can work on it when I am out and about with the boys or have a long wait somewhere.  Chasing after three boys at the park doesn't give me as much calm sewing time as chasing after two! 

I'm also contemplating what to do with my leftover stars.  I have a stack of blue, green, and purple diamonds already cut and about six completed stars that did not make it into my final star quilt.  I'm thinking either a quilted tote bag for hauling my epp projects around in or a pillow.

The Seattle Modern Quilt guild is currently hosting a show at Island Quilter: Binary.

Isaac and I rode the ferry over last week for the Friday night art walk and show opening. As usual, it was a lovely evening. 

I had one quilt in the show, 1+1=10:

The space is perfect for showcasing the quilts - bright and open.

Above are quilts by Carrie, Sandie, and Allison

My favorite quilt in the show was done by Anna:

She really thinks outside the box with her quilts and has lovely hand quilting.

Above quilts by Sue, LouiseChandra, me, and Katie.

I really enjoyed this challenge. The parameters were so simple and open and really allowed our group to showcase their artistic abilities.
