And So It Begins...

I've done it.  I finally started a La Passacaglia quilt.  (If you want to see what a La Pass quilt looks like, here are some that have been posted on Pinterest.)

I've had the supplies for quite awhile, but I was still wrapping up both a Lucy Boston/Patchwork of the Crosses quilt and the New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt. Two English paper piecing projects at one time is enough, so La Pass had to wait.

Then on Tuesday, I got some great news.  My Millie quilt won a first place ribbon in the fiber category at a local art show, advancing it to the city-wide contest.

I'm so excited.  So much so that I decided I needed to start another EPP project.   I'd been wanting to for awhile, but I just never could seem to get organized.  But now I'm motivated.  I missed doing EPP and the calming effect it has on me. Then I remembered I already had everything I needed to get started.  So yesterday, I started La Passacaglia. 

Granted, I only got two centers done.  But as they say, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."  Or in this case, two.
