Ruby Star Rising

Some work has been done on the EPP quilt, but I have a few million ends to sew in before I show it to you again.

 I did start and finish these four pouches though. 

One of them was made with this leatherette stuff, which I bought on Derby market when it was the biggest market in Europe with loads of fabric stalls.  It (the market) is a sad apology now.  The leatherette was surprisingly easy to sew, although you should not try to iron it.

If anyone knows where I can get some more of this fabric please let me know.  It is Ruby Star Rising by Melody Miller for Kokka.

Back to the EPP next week when I hope it will be finished at last.

EPP - the final lap?

Attempting new-to-me spiral quilting on this gloomy November morning...

There is likely to be cursing and unpicking later on... cover your ears now.

Liberty Hexie Triples - Monday Count

A quick count this week - I've been working on the "other thing" so I've only done a few triples this week.  There are now 101 individual hexagons in there.  Ruler for scale.

The binding is on the "other thing" (don't know what to call it), but I still need to add hand quilting.  Some lovely sun this morning.

Joining up with Jessica at Life Under Quilts - Jessica has started a monthly meeting - looks like fun, but a bit of a commute for me.

Liberty Hexagons - Triples

I broke my one-project-at-a-time rule.  The red white and blue EPP is not finished - I will get around to putting the sandwich together this week.  Maybe I was missing hand piecing - anyway,  I started this little project.  

The hexies are quite small.  Putting three together makes it look less fussy I think.  Each hexie triple takes a tiny amount of fabric, so I'm glad I kept all my Liberty scraps.

This piece may end up in a second experimental zip around purse, so it does not need to get much bigger.  The first botched job is here.  

I was pleased to see on Instagram that Jessica is planning to start her Monday EPP link-up today over at Life Under Quilts.  I love instagram, but you can't do a link-up there.  I'm looking forward to seeing what others have been up to.
