Dotty for EPP

I’ve had a reasonably productive week of English paper piecing. Putting the photos together, I’ve noticed there seems to be something of a dotty theme! It wasn’t intentional 🙂

Here’s star number 30:

Hexagon star number 30

And number 31:

Hexagon star number 31

I’ve also been back on hexagons, ready to make a pincushion and matching needlebook for a friend. The pincushion hexagons are 3/4 inch per side and the little flower is made of teeny tiny 1/2 inch hexies. Hopefully, by next week’s Slow Stitching Sunday I’ll have the finished articles to show you.

    I can’t see any problem with lots of lovely dots! One of my favourite patterns, keep it up!

    I have a drawer of dots and love using them in my projects! How many stars are you planning to make? I love the bright colours. Nice hexies too.

      I seem to have quite a collection of dotty fabrics too – though have never consciously sought them out! I think I am going to aim for 40 stars and see how I feel then.

  3. Beautiful ! Enjoy your stitching today 🙂

    I absolutely adore #31. It pulled me right in from Slow Sunday Stitching to read your blog. I am enjoying watching all those stars emerge.

  6. Love dots, and especially the tiny hexies!

    Dots make everything better (and cuter!).

  10. Kay says:

    Can never have too many spotty fabrics – especially when you are putting them to such good use

  11. Jennifer says:

    Your dots are pretty as are all your EPP projects.

  12. Jill says:

    Dots add so much fun and cheerful interest. I thought you were adding the dotted fabric as part of the design. Lol!

    • vivjm says:

      Well, I will be using a dotty fabric for my intersecting triangles but hadn’t intentionally gone for lots of dots in the star design – I guess I am just drawn to dottiness!!

  13. Dawn says:

    Fantastic blocks! Dots are classic, and yours look great!

  14. Stephie says:

    Gorgeous colours! And I notice that on your hexies you have the exact same fussy cut flowers as I have in mine, haha! Great minds obviously think alike 😀 Look forward to seeing your finished projects next weekend, have fun stitching!
