Day #2...More Sewing :)

It's my bff Jill's birthday Wednesday so I thought I'd try my hand at some epp (English paper piecing).  I am copying a pin cushion I saw on someones blog during the Hexy Festival thing-ie.  For the life of me, I can't remember who's blog it was :(  Just know that I am giving credit to someone else for the COOL idea!! :)  THANK YOU!! :)
*** I found the blog :)  It's from Jeni over at In Color Order blogged HERE****

I am not sure I like making hexies...

The back of the hexies look HORRIBLE!  My stitches were not very pretty :(  I forgot to take a picture of the mess :p  Good thing the mess if all on the inside :)

Happy Birthday, Jill!!! :)

Next came the sewing of the binding for the Top Secret Quilt :)

I went scrappy :)

Scrappy makes me happy!

Swinging in the trees.

The year.

The Back

The Quilting.

The End ;D

PS-  I stayed in my pj's until 1pm ;) ...and I didn't clean the house until 4pm :O


  1. I love the fabrics in the pincushion. i admire EPP from afar, but don't want to try it--my hand stitching is terrible, so I can just imagine what my backs would look like! I'll stick with my machine and just enjoy seeing others' EPP projects.

  2. Can I be your bff and get a present like this for my bday? :))) I promise I will not care what the back looks like;) Seriously... it looks awesome! Hexies are fun to make, you just have to get in the groove! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Forgot... the surprise quilt looksgreat already from the back and edges :)
