WiP Wednesday

Edited to add ~ the arrangement in the photo is not the correct one.  Note to self: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS~

The end of the month is approaching and that means getting any languishing bee blocks completed and shipped off.

Back in the summer, I joined a new English Paper Piecing (EPP) bee called EEEEP EPP Bee set up by Danielle (DJ Coolbear).  My EPP experience up until then had been basting some hexies for my mum back in the '80s and my hexies this summer. Like with many things in life, I leaped in with 2 feet without thinking about it. Danielle's aim was for a relaxed bee where we would have 2 months to complete each month's blocks.

Lazy Days Lozenge Block 1
August's block is for Mary. She wants 2 scrappy Lazy Days Lozenge blocks by Lynne, the templates for which you can find here.  Mary sent us all some of her own scraps to be mixed with ours and some Kona charcoal for the squares and triangles. Her instructions were that no colour should dominate. They are fun to make, come together pretty quickly and a change from my lovely hexies. While I think I may be taking the whole relaxed vibe too literally, a whole quilt of these will look beautiful.

Linking up with Lee for WiP Wednesday - pop over and see what other people are making.

Gorgeous though I think I'd want to keep it to myself!

That looks like a great EPP project. Aren't you glad you don't have to make a whole quilt of it? It will be pretty when she gets all the blocks assembled

I absolutely love that block and the way the solid makes it looks like tiles.

An EPP bee is a great way to make something that would probably take forever and a day to do yourself by hand! Looks great :o)

Reminds me of a lovely tiled floor! It is a calming pattern and colour palette.

I like the idea that no one color dominates - looks good.

Your block is so pretty! But you've got me worrying about the arrangement! I am sooooo not wanting to get that seam ripper out!
Better go check instructions myself!
