When I first made EPP ( English Paper Piecing) Starflowers I had appliqued them in my Stars and Spools Quilt :
There is something about EPP that once you have done it, you want to do it again :)
So this year I thought to make the Starflowers with connectors but I had no clue what I was doing and found no tutorials online….most of what was online was people showing progress making some of these for a pillow, table runner, etc.
I got this far…
With a few more yet to attach….
Yet I was not enjoying the look of it nor the process of sewing them together with the connectors. And because I hand quilt, I was thinking that this would not be very enjoyable to quilt in the end, either.
So I changed direction. I decided that I’d still enjoy the EPP process of making the Starflowers but I’d applique them onto squares. Nine inch squares seems to work and I started on the first one today.
There are so many tiny little whip stitches in what I’d sewn together thus far that I will probably cut my losses and not attempt to undo them ; at least not now :)
We had snow showers all day yesterday and today was still chilly but a warm up is in the forecast for later on this week!
I hope and imagine that I am not the ONLY person that has abandoned or changed direction in a project ? Have any of you done the same ?
