EPP taking shape!
The mysterious EPP pieces I cut before Easter are now beginning to come together nicely. In the words of Rolf "can you tell what it is yet?"
I'm not sure if this photo is giving you a proper perspective of this project but I do hope so. I bought this pattern by download from Romanian Quilt Studio. I fell in love the instant I saw it back last summer and have been not-so-patiently waiting to make a start among all the other projects I've had on the go. Geta calls this pattern Flower Ball, but I prefer to call it my hexi globe. I just love the way those irregular hexagons create that spherical perspective. Can you see it?
I bought the smaller version (scroll to the bottom of her page) for just a few dollars, though sadly I note that it seems only to be available now as an addition to the larger pattern which is 38". The smaller version comes as a pdf with a printable pattern of 121 pieces measuring 25" diameter and is easily taped together and then cut into the requisite pieces ready for piecing back together as per the numbered chart provided. So far it's all been nice and straightforward if a little strange to be piecing irregular shapes that do not lay exactly on top of one another. I am still a little bit apprehensive about those final slivers of pieces that will finish the circle eventually. Anyway, not thinking about it yet and so far I'm having great fun!
