Do you use an e-reader or tablet? What type? Would you use a cover if your SS Pal put one in your box?

I would love to try a Lucy Boston quilt and like all shapes for EPP. Wish there were more accuquilt dies for these types of projects. Maybe in time....

Dear Secret Santa Sister, If my box is already full, please ignore any of my wishes here.  I know I will super happy with whatever you have done and what is in your budget.

I am a Hexi fanatic recently.  Larger pre-cut papers would be nice.  I have enough rulers if I just behave when I use them.

Beth North - I just checked out the Quilters Select Rotary Cutter.  It is very expensive.  What makes it so special over the Olfa or Fons and Porter one?  Does it really work that much better?  It looks nice tho.

Safe travels, Wilma!

You have all been busy. I am doing some EPP hexi's while traveling. Much easier than bringing a quilt along. I love hand turning applique. Have done a couple of Hawaiian style quilts. My eyes are not what they used to be. Have started some wool applique which is definitely easier than needle turning. I have seen some really unique EPP on Pinterest but no time on trip.

Am hoping to find a couple of stores while on our trip, but no luck so far. As for my apron...not happening at this point. Am sure I will have withdrawal pains by end of trip.

I've tried EPP...made 3 pin cushions that I love, but I don't care to do it again...well unless I see a pattern that I can't do without! No Accuquilt, not interested.

Thank you Chris for coming up with these questions and keeping us active.

Is there anyone working on aprons? Or is Mary the only one turning in a photo!?! I have one but it hasn't photographed well.

Guess I haven't finished. Not picky about thread- off white/natural in color for most piecing unless it's something dark, then a closer shade of grey to black or navy. Don't need any rulers.A small pressing mat would be great for using right by my machine when I am working strings. A needle book is nice to have all my needles in a handy, findable place.

I do different types of applique, depending on the project. Haven't done much English paper piecing, but it fascinates me with it's intricacy. No embroidery machine. I have 2 Olfa cutters- a 45 and a littler one (don't know the size of it). I mostly use the 45. I haven't answered in a while, so I am behind. Hmmm. am I caught up?

I've made several hexie quilts in different sizes, I enjoy hand sewing and hand embroidery. I don't have and Accuquilt Go, doesn't seem to interest me.
