Like most Wednesdays, I spent today at the local quilt shop.
I can hear you thinking, “that doesn’t look like a Disney Princess.” You’re right, this week I worked on the Block of the Month, called Moxie Girl.
This project uses a combination of foundation paper piecing (fpp) and english paper piecing (epp). These blocks will be made up of hexagons.
I was hoping to get the FPP done today, but didn’t quite make it. I’m close, though, so I’ll finish up tomorrow. I have one hexie stitched and trimmed so you (and I!) can see what they’ll look like. Let’s take a closer look . . .
See those pretty points? THAT’s why I love foundation paper piecing!
Once I have the FPP part done, I can do all the EPP – joining the hexies – as hand work. We have a road trip planned for next week and I’m hoping to get a lot of them done while riding in the car.
Speaking of the road trip – I will not be home to post Wednesday WOW next week. I may try to post something from South Dakota, but past experience has not been very successful doing that.
So come back in two weeks – July 24 – to see what I’ve been getting up to.
