That's Grandmother's Flower Garden/English Paper Piecing Along!

I don't know if there's really enough interest in this, but I thought I'd start the thread and see if people jumped on board.

The original topic is here and has some how-to links and inspiration links:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188273.0

For more inspiration, check out the EPP photo pool on flickr:

Anyone can join at any time!  Any kind of English Paper Piecing is fine, it doesn't have to be a G'ma's Flower Garden.  Just get sewing and post your progress Grin

Here's a few more links that I can't remember if they're in the other thread or not...

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

OK as for me - I started my G'ma's Garden about a week and a bit ago.  I like it so far!!  It's reallllly portable but not too fussy, and I can do it while the cat is in my lap (like when he interrupts my other crafting and demands to be paid attention!) 

My color scheme is "shabby chic" and I'm using lots of prints with dark grey centers to the flowers.  I feel like it's a bit boring so far - I'm going to have to broaden my range of prints a bit.  I haven't decided what's going to go between the flowers yet.  I'm thinking...muslin?
