"EPP PARTY" OCTOBER 2018- JUNE 2019!
EPP refers to English Paper Piecing, The technique of folding fabric over paper templates and hand sewing these together. The paper template shape ensures the blocks are accurate and also makes it easier to piece angles together. EPP requires only; paper, fabric, scissors, thread, and needles, so it's a great craft to take with you!
For this year’s program we will be doing 2 small projects instead of 1 big quilt, as we have done in years past.
Project #1- October to January
Heartbreaker EPP Mini Quilt
Heartbreaker is a fun epp mini quilt by Libs Elliot. It is a skill-building English paper piecing pattern made up with 7 hearts. When finished it measures 22"x25" so it's a fairly quick project and is a great size for a wall hanging or to give as a gift.
Project #2 - February to May
Wicked Hex Mini Quilt
The Wicked Hex is an English Paper Piecing project by Libs Elliott. You can be use any fabrics to make this mini quilt! It's versatile in that you can fussycut certain pieces to add focus to the quilt. Because the pieces are larger, it's a good starting point for anyone who hasn't tried paper piecing before. It's portable, great for mini quilt swaps and it's not just wicked...it's fun.
We will meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month. See dates below.

SSQ's MYSTERY QUILT ADVENTURE!
I hope you are ready for another adventure. If you haven't done a mystery quilt before, you're in for a treat. If you participated in our last mystery adventure, you already know how sweet the treat is!
Here's how the SSQ Mystery Quilt Adventure works. The fabric requirements are given to you when you sign up for the Mystery Quilt Adventure. Each month, you will come in and receive a set of instructions to complete a portion of the quilt. It really is the fun is in completing a new step each month trying to envision the final outcome. In May, we will have a "reveal party" for everyone to come in and show off their creations!
You'll love this new mystery quilt, and this is a great opportunity to do some serious stash busting this year. Dig through your stash for scraps or yardage in assorted light, medium and dark values as instructed in Fabric Requirements. Remember that mystery-quilt patterns emerge best when high-contrast fabric choices in color and/or value are made. Gather the total yardages listed. Now get ready to have some fun!
So...here's the recap.
This mystery is a six-part series.
Each step will have some cutting and piecing instructions.
Construction of this quilt requires rotary cutting & machine piecing skills
Finished size of this quilt is 70" X 84"
