Design Wall Monday
I think English paper piecing is my place in the quilting universe. I love how each block builds and then joins the others. Every one is a decision. The Hubz calls it the "hmm" factor. I'll play around with placing the octies and do a lot of hmmm-ing. What should I put here? What there? I love this.
I never pre-plan color order. In my Fair Isle heyday, I'd never color my charts. Just bought entirely too many colors and then played as I went along. I don't want to know how something will look before I do it; I like serendipity. So it is with EPP. My cup of tea.
I don't care about speed, either. I just love being able to do a little bit of piecing here and there.
