Two Tip Tuesday – Quilt Show prep and EPP

Some days look like this at the Wendt Quilting table!

Spa Therapy Bag pattern D.W.

Spring Paducah is just around the corner and many patterns have to be folded and ready to vend. And kits assembled and ready for class!

There are just a few seats left in Hexies and Honeycombs on Wednesday night from 5-8pm. Won’t you join me for fun evening of learning to English Paper Piece (EPP)? These are great “go” projects and don’t take up much room to carry at all. We’ll be making and exploring Flower Garden blocks and Lucy Boston’s Patchwork of the Crosses. You bring some 2 1/2″ squares and a few fat quarter and a kit supplies all your papers! A fun way to spend a few hours with like minded quilty people!  Handwork is great for relaxing with friends.

Hexies and Honeycombs D.W.

Years ago when I first started a flower garden quilt, NO it isn’t finished yet, but getting closer each time I travel.  I love my plaid flowers!  Did you know you can reuse the “Paper Pieces” papers?  Once you get a hexie surrounded, you’re good to take out the paper for that center piece.  The papers are very reasonable but by reusing you save some change and weight that you carry around.

#1 – Reuse EPP “Paper Pieces”.

Honeycombs are a great fun shape to explore.  The Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses is a fantastic avenue for creating kaleidoscope designs with your fabric.  (picture of honeycomb center shown in class photo above)

#2 – Explore Honeycombs for a new handwork project!

I hope you’ll join me in Paducah.  And my booth has moved to the first floor of the Convention Center #2605 (not the main Expo hall, but down the hall and around the corner in the same building).   See you there in 2 short weeks!

in quilting,
