WIP Wednesday - Playing with EPP

Two years ago (where does the time go????), I saw an amazing project by Jayne @ Twiggy and Opal.  Click here to take a look.

I prepared everything as a travel project when I went to a national Girl Guide camp in Alberta in July 2016.  What was I thinking???  There's never time when you're working as Core Crew.  😪  The poor project never saw the light of day at camp, and I only just recently remembered it.

I started piecing small sections together.  One section was torn apart and re-done because I wasn't paying attention to colour placement.


It started to slowly come together, as I pieced one small section to another.


And here's the top section.


And then finally the third section.  The end was in sight!  By this time, I was really enjoying EPP.  I glue basted and used Glide thread.


Voilà -- a finished mini.


I'm stalled at the moment as I'm unsure as to next steps.  I was hoping to add some borders, but I don't have any more of the linen-y navy blue.  I forgot to write down the Kona colours for the two lighter blues, but I can easily match those with my colour card.  But I'm not in a rush to finish because then I'll have to make the hard decision on how to quilt it.......

  2. I love the careful placement of your prints and colors, Anja. I'm fascinated by the triangular shape, too. How big is it, roughly, right now?

  3. This is beautiful, I love the colours and it just goes to show how many wonderful layouts can be made from the humble diamond :)

  4. A beautiful piece! I'm wondering what your plan is for finishing it. Are you going to leave it in the triangle I hope so.

  5. Very pretty piece! Do you plan to border the triangle or add pieces to make a triangle in the center of a square-ish piece? Though you probably don't want to, you could trim off the slate blue diamonds on the edges for a straight line, and go from there.
