Let me tell you about my sweet friend, Jessie. I met her a few years ago when she was president of the DC Modern Quilt Guild and I was president of the Baltimore Modern QuiltGuild. She is one of the nicest people, and also makes beautiful babies:

About a year ago, Jessie and I were having lunch, and she told me about her idea for die cut, freezer paper English Paper Piecing pieces. Although I wasn't much of an EPP-er at the time, the idea sounded fantastic.
Fast forward to now, Jessie has made her dream a reality!
Snowflakes Freezer Paper Pieces are now available!
A few months ago, Jessie offered to send me some snowflakes to try out. I was already making some 6 pointed stars, so requested 60 degree diamonds (Jessie offers 5 shapes, all in several sizes.)
|Aren't they pretty? I think I'll need about 100 for a decent sized quilt!|
If you haven't delved into English Paper Piecing, or have tried it but would like some pointers, Jessie has a series of tutorials on you tube. Her ladder stitch tutorial makes everything so clear!
So, are you ready for a new project?
Go to Sew Mama Sew for the tutorial for this darling Spring Basket. Jessie has some kits available in her shop as well.
I hope you'll give Snowflakes a try! (Oh, and they don't melt in the summer heat, lol!)
