I am away on my family holiday in Cornwall at the moment with no sewing machine! What is a girl to do? English Paper Piecing of course! While I was at the Festival of Quilts I was given a Moda Jelly Roll - French General - Rue de Jardin, not my usual choice but very pretty and ideal to take away and perfect to EPP with.
The pattern I have decided to do was inspired by some of the quilts I saw at the Festival and also has a Christmassy feel to it.
I will put it together with some Kona Snow as a Christmas Quilt - seems a bit strange to be working towards Christmas while on the beach!
The stars are made up of diamonds and triangles into that wonderful hexagon shape, the amazing 60 degree angle! I can get four stars with four strips and am averaging a star a day - hmmm may take a while as I doubt I will keep that up when reunited with my machine!
Here are couple of the quilts that made me decide on EPP stars...
