sigh, had to sign in again. That is oh so cute! Now i want to make one. I looked up some and like this one best due to the larger circle. Really looks good!

In a FB EPP group I belong to, this pattern, Exploding Dresden, is currently being worked on.  (No, I am not participating!  Too many other irons in the fire right now. :-)  )

This is the schematic:

and here's an actual example.  This one features some wonderful fussy-cutting in the outer round.

Very nice.  Some of those fabrics look like Liberty.  I've pretty much decided that EPP is not for me, because I don't particularly enjoy doing it as much as other types of construction, but I always admire the work of those who do.  I do like that one very much, and wonder what the rest of the quilt will look like.  

Wow Shelley that is beautiful! Too many irons in my fire too.....sigh!

That would also work with conventional hand piecing as well. That is how I would tackle it. It would be a great portable project. You could plop a big one in the middle, do 4 quarter ones for the corners!

Yes, I can see that could be done with simple hand-piecing.  I would like that a lot more than EPP.

Wowsers - that's really incredible.  I have "man hands" when it comes to fine work/hand sewing but kudos to those who do it and love it.
