    Anael,
    Very pretty blocks. I had wondered about that center on B10 and why they had it in 3 pieces. I like the way you did it, looks nice.

    Week 4 Blocks

    Here's mine. I have no idea why the "pie" in B2 is smaller in the first one. I made that one several months ago and I don't remember which instructions I followed. I think I printed the templates then and this time I printed the block.

    This is my third attempt to post my photos of weeks 1-3. (Been away from the machine for many weeks!) Mine are a bit wonky-- especially the couple I did on the road by hand.

    I'm using scraps, with an effort to stay in the "jewel" tones.

    Hello again.

    I've been plugging away at my blocks...

    A little info on EPP (English Paper Piecing) :

    Basically, I print out the block, cut out individual pieces and baste the fabric to these pieces.
    Then they are whip-stitched together.

Size:  16.9 KB the back of a-6


    I use regular Guttermann thread - and a size 12 between needle (I need the smallest
    needle so I only pick up a few threads on the whip stitching)

    Traditionally, EPP is used on convex shapes with straight edges (no indents)
    like hexagons and diamonds. This is the first time I've tried with curves.
    The concave curves need to be clipped - but it has worked so far...

Size:  16.6 KB the backs of b-3 and b-1

    The blocks are 6cm - so I think the centre blocks will finish about 36 inches.

Size:  17.4 KB c-3

    I believe that the original b-13 was made with a single fussy-cut square -
    so I decided to re-design it since every EPP needs some hexagons

    Nice work all.

    @hex nut: ooooooooh! Thanks for showing the backs. I had only done EPP with hexis before this project so I quickly needed to expand my bag of tricks. LOVE It!

    I give up. Have been trying for over an hour to upload my pic. I'm apparently not the only one not able to upload right now. I'll try again another day.

    Wk 4 - B2, B3, B10

    B2 - 1/2 square triangles arranged to form a pinwheel, appliqued circle (cardstock paper basted like EPP) to another pinwheel.

    B3 - 4 patch appliqued circle (cardstock paper basted like EPP) to 4 patch.

    B10 - My first OMG!!! block.
    Center paper pieced which somehow finished small. Ugh!!
    Sides trimmed to allow 1/4" piecing. Cream strips added to sides.
    Cream strips with brown corner squares were added to top and bottom (I had to adjust these to make them smaller since the middle came up small). Ugh!
    Pink strips were generously cut to make up the difference and pieced.
    Block was trimmed to 5" and voila! Piece of cake.
    Did I say OMG!!!

    B10 required a lot of patience on my part and constant reminders that anything can be fixed with frog stitching and wider borders. Refer to the original DJ for many examples. He He.

    Tips/tricks:
    I used Carol Doak's foundation paper (thanks 50 Stars group) for the first time. Love it compared to regular copy paper that I had been using. It tears so easily for removal but stays put for all the frog stitching.

    Shorter stitch length for foundation piecing (thanks 50 Stars group) = easier paper removal.

    Smaller seam allowance on small pieces. It clearly makes sense but I can be really rigid with my rules (guidelines) sometimes.

    Happy Quilting!

    okay and here's week 4 - now I'm caught up.

    I have GOT to learn paper piecing! While I can normally teach myself most things, learning paper piecing by book continues to escape me. I keep waiting for our LQS to offer a class in it.

    I've been working ahead. I'm in school full time so I can't always get the 3 blocks done each week, so this way I can keep up

    Don't wait, try searching for a tute on YouTube. There are some great videos out there. PM me if you need help.

    Company has left, so I wlll get my squares posted for this week. I have decided to do some hand quilting on each square, rather than waiting to the end. I am not a hand quilter, so don't look too close. But, this quilt is mine, so I can make mistakes.

    I do have one question about sashing, if anyone can help. What is the width of the sashing? I have looked though the book and can't find it anywhere. Sure will thank anyone who can help with this question.

    Sure am enjoying all the hints and suggestions that are coming on this thread, and especially all the blocks. I am so glad that I got onto this thread. It has been a great help to me.

    Hex nut, Thank you for sharing the EPP , especially the view of the backs. I plan to try this soon. Do you use regular paper or do you use a thicker paper like cardstock?
    You blocks look fantastic!
