Diana's English Paper Piecing Bee was Tuesday afternoon at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, is what Julie B. has been working on.  This is just one of the medallions in her Millefiori quilt.  She has spent a lot of time and thought, planning and sewing in creating this piece.  Notice the intricate fussy cutting she has done.  I can't wait to see this quilt finished!
Marilyn shows us this piece she is working on.  Love the fussy cutting done here too.
There were others at the Bee and I thought I had taken more pictures of their wonderful projects, but I must have gotten sidetracked when Pat A. showed us her latest finish.  It is stunning!
This is a closeup of one of her blocks.  This is a great way to use your scraps.  When I asked her more about this quilt, Pat said that each strip is 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" .  You start by placing two strips together.  Place a strip on each end and work around from there.  She said her blocks end up at 10 1/2" but you can make your block any size you want.  I can't wait to get started working on my scrap stash!  Thanks Pat for the info.
