Slow piecing

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

I always like to take a little hand work on vacation – so that when it’s quiet and I get some time to myself I can listen to my audio book and sew or knit. This time it was EPP using lovely fabrics from French General – most from the Pondicherry range.

I haven’t done EPP for ages, decades maybe……usually my quiet go-to is sock knitting, but I have been itching to work with this fabric since I bought some yardage and a layer cake in Amish country in the spring. I love French General and have made at least one big quilt with their fabrics in the past – I can’t get enough of that red/beige combination. This range is subdued but with lovely interesting fabrics with an Indian theme. I’m planning to visit Pondicherry later in the year, so it really spoke to me.

I reckon I’ll need at least 100 hexagons for a quilt, so this should see me though a lot of long cold winter nights!

It’s good to be home.

And good to be back here too!

    French General was one of my first fabric crushes. These will be lovely. Better you than me though…my hands can’t do EPP. anymore.
