More EPP....

So this EPP is quite distracting.  I'll be going on vacation for a week and I'm not taking my Juki--just my EPP.  I bought the new book Quilting on the Go and I love it!  Apparently there is a blog tour about it....the author's blog is called Life Under Quilts.  Check it out if you have a moment...

My plan is to make a big star quilt out of my coveted Kaffe fabrics.  Of course I didn't have enough, so I bought 25 half yard cuts from Hancock's of Paducah to round out my stash.  They haven't arrived yet, but soon....I decided that I had to make some sort of tessellating unit and this is what I came up with ....One star unit with three background diamonds.  This unit will fit together with the other units nicely.  I need to make 100 of these units!

 See how they will fit together?  If anyone has a better plan, please let me know.  I'm just winging it....

I'm working on making the 100 star units before assembling them.  I'll show you a pic of my plan later this week....awesome!

Anyhow, I need to go pack and get ready for vacation.  Happy quilting!


  1. i am lov'n your color combo! the polka dot is perfect!

  2. The dot is perfect but I'm lovin' your stars! I've never made stars before. It is going to be beautiful and show worthy!

  3. love your fabric choices! I, too, am doing a hexie quilt. I am doing lots of long car rides across the country so I needed something portable. I'll have to check out that book.


It is great to hear from you... I had to eliminate anonymous comments due to spamming....sorry!
