For your browsing pleasure, a photographic mish-mash of assorted English paper pieced star coasters in their various stages of construction:
And a kit made for my little sister in law who wants to learn English paper piecing:
It contains a Happy Doggie needle book, red, white and blue fabric, batting, felt backing, scissors, thread, thread conditioner and a little soap box to hold the paper piecing templates. (I used 1.5″ 60 degree diamonds from Quilt Laughing on Etsy.) I added a label for fun.
And I have a large paper piecing project that I’ve been away from for too long, so back to it!
love the coasters, Sarah! and the epp kit too!
Thank you, Erin! I was going to sew a little zippered pouch to hold the kit, but then I saw that little box in a kitchen supply store and it looked perfect. Now I’m wishing I’d bought more!
What a wonderful little project.
It’s kind of addictive, too! I love how they don’t take long at all to make, but make useful, colorful works of art. :)
So pretty! I especially love the close up of your stitches… for a beginner like me, it’s so helpful!
