Beautiful raffle quilt.  Always fun to sew with others.

not sure how I feel about this so far.  It's not really ringing any bells for me.  I've got 5 or 6 more blocks prepped for EPP, but then I may just stop with wall hanging size.  I want to make a name sign (Dee's place) for my door, I might repurpose these for a border for that.

Are you enjoying working on these? 

They look nice but I think they all look too similar to each other except for the happy yellow one.

I am enjoying them a bit.  I was thinking tho, I really would prefer applique.  With applique I find excuses to sit down and work on it. 

These are kind of  -  well - eh.  Not work exactly but not something I love.  I need to find another applique project to get excited about.  the Christmas one went much faster than expected.  Start to finish it will have only been a year - which is pretty quick for me.

Well, take it from me, you want to be working on something you are really enthusiastic about.

Do not waste your energies on a time-filler. That's what jigsaw puzzles are for. stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

well but I can't take jigsaws with me in the car while waiting on DH at the hardware store.  or driving the 2 hours to go see DD.

I really like your cheery blocks!  How big are they?

I need to prep another applique project as well. The extent of handwork lately has been numerous quilt binding. I just need to find a fun p reject and do some prep.

Well, the colors in this project might not agree with you but I found this EPP project by typing  "cat EPP quilt" into Google.  It is your hand piecing and there's a tiny cat in the center ...

If you do a more serious search I am sure you will find something ...

(Frankly the colors set my teeth on edge but then Tula Pink's things usually do. LOL)

Going to Etsy could get you into all kinds of mischief ... type EPP quilt kits in the search box and see what happens.

I found this one quite easily:
