    english paper piecing hexagon hand project- 1st blocks

    for a summer travel hand project i decided to work on a hexagon english paper piecing project with a group from the Quilt Pattern Magazine. here are pics of the first of my blocks- i decided to do them all in pinks, black & whites- after i finish them all i think they will make a pretty cool quilt- some of the participants are making them into mugrugs or other small complete projects- i'm just doing the blocks for now.

    WOW!!! How awesome are you! You have done a fantastic job. I love everyone of them. They look so good together. I have never done English paper piecing. I know you do it by hand, that's all I know about it. But, wonderful fabric choices!

    I love these! Really love the color combo. I may borrow this idea from you. How large across are the completed blocks?
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Love those blocks!! One was prettier than the next!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I love EPP. I have learned most of what I know from the website of the woman who is doing the patterns in Quilt pattern magazine. She has an excellent site with lots of free patterns. She used to do a stitch along and did some great patterns.
