    Try this site. It is my favorite for english paper piecing. I am in the process of doing my 2nd EPP GFG. I'm working on borders now. You will enjoy the process, and your grandmother would be proud of you. After you do one quilt, it's sort of like potato chips........can't do (eat) just one! There is a site that has hex's that you can print. I use scrap paper, and cut my own. I can usually use the papers at least twice, and often more. I would love to buy the ready cut, but I'm cheep! Enjoy! Give me a holler if I can be of any help!

It is a great project to have ready for appointments etc.

    Those are exactly the size that I needed!!!! Now instead of buying more quilt pattis, I'll do the flowers with a cardboard template using this template, and do the rest of the quilt out of the quilt pattis.

    You can buy plastic (mylar?) hexagons that have a little hole in the center. Once the fabric has been basted around the template and the petal has been joined with others to make a flower, and you have a few flowers joined together, you can pop the templates out and re-use them. I'm always looking for the easy way and don't think I would like to cut a gillion little hexagons.

    Hope this helps.

    I have these too! Haven't used them yet but I am looking for some hand work and I do have reproduction 20's, 30's, and 40's to use just for this. I'll have to dig them out this weekend!
