WIP Wednesday - the one with a new obsession

I've had a fun week this week, trying a new-to-me technique: English paper piecing! I'm loving it, cos I can sit on the couch and sew and watch a bit of TV (Mr Elven Garden is working interstate at the moment, so I'm a bit tired most nights to sew on the machine.) I can only give you sneak peeks so far - this one is my mini quilt for the Modern Mini challenge:


And this is a secret project (so you won't be seeing any more of this one ;) )


Other that these new projects (I just can't help myself!!) I've finished off the quilting on my FTLOS project, and have made the binding so its ready to be finished finally. I've run out of thread though, so its waiting on me getting into the city to buy some more :)


I also finished and posted my Name Game swap mini quilt - and my partner has recieved it and likes it (so relieved - first swap and I was really nervous that she wouldn't like it...)


I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced (no WIP stats this week - it will just depress me, what with the new projects and lack of finishes ;) )

Love your fussy cut hexies. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.
The FTLOS project really pops, doesn't it. Great colours.
I love the way you have quilted the name on the Name Game Swap quilt, it's fabulous.

I'm an EPP addict now!! It's a nice change of pace to machine sewing :)
Your star look great and of course your partner liked your mini quilt, it's fab!
