Thursday September 27th Small Quilt Group Projects! So the first meeting occurred yesterday and we had so much fun. We are working on Lori Smith's small quilts and these blocks below are the first ones to be completed... yay! nope not one of them is mine - I decided to try my hand at foundation paper piecing - I took a little bit longer - getting one done the entire day... I did have a couple of other things to finish up!

|In our last month's English Paper Piecing club meeting I told everyone that I would have this done for October's meeting. That meeting is next week so here we are .........D- Day minus 8 days........almost done!|
|Another view - all those black triangles that are standing up still need to be sewn down!!!! I am hoping that I make it - perhaps it will be on the Long Arm machine for you to see next week???|

The challenge went up last month at the English Paper Piecing Club meeting that we needed name tags! So make one using EPP - some of us were not quite as focused as we should have been and are still working or thinking about our name tag but then others got right down to it.. the first pic is the serious over achiever but look how clever!
Here was the front runner - a 3D name tag made out of dresdens some bling - yes I said bling and oh yes it did have her name on it also!! Well done Diane.. We loved it and now it is up to the rest of us to meet or beat this imagination.. !!
|I guess I only took half of a picture here as the name tag was only half completed!! That sounds almost like I planned it but you know I did not - just a poor photographer.. But it is going to be cute when it is finished..|
|A clever pincushion made by one of the talented members of the group - this pic may not do the fussy cutting enough justice but Rita has been clever with her cutting of the fabric to get this effect.|
|Diane does it again.. a great table topper all English paper pieced.|
|The first blocks for the PIES and TARTS block of the month. Kimberly shared with us what she had completed and they look terrific..|
