    visit 'The Quilt Pattern Magazine' on line- if you subscribe they have a group EPP project on going.
    also visit 'Paperpieces.com' they have a community and may have some group bom's going.
    i've been working on the TQPM hex project for months now- i think i have something like 45 blocks done- there are 3 new blocks posted in the magazine every month then if you join the free Pattern Panache (part of the magazine) the (designer/hostess) is posting additional blocks regularly when members show pictures of their finished blocks. she has beginner/intermediate/advanced & insane blocks.

    Try amazon and search in books for foundation piecing. In England amazon has 200+ books with all kind of designs. Landscapes, flowers as well as blocks. Try these authorsClaudia Clark Myers, Joan Hall, Linda causes/ Rita Weiss and Mary JoHiney. Book new English paper piecing by Sue Daley.

    Now that's a skill level I've not heard before: "insane". I love it! And your quilt looks awesome so far!

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them."

    I've seen patterns done with 1/4" hexagons...I'd call that "insane"!
