    Everyone has been talking about the english paper piecing/Grandmother's Garden, etc. that they are wanting to work on.

    I found this method sometime last year, luckily before I had really started my hexagon project. It is so easy. This keeps you from having to cut out the paper pieces, then cut out the fabric and make sure you get it just right before basting it to paper, etc. Basting the square to the paper and then cutting out to me really make that part of the project go so much faster. Also, on ebay, you can always find people that are selling squares for a really good price. Good way to use up scraps as well.
