    There are many variations of the Grandmothers Flower Garden. Look that up and see if any of those suit your fancy.

    I have no idea if this link will work, you may have to be a member of the english paper piecing group to see it, but I thought this snail trail lay out was brilliant

    There are a lot of shapes that work well with epp, not just hexagons

    I'm addicted to hexies too! I had a break from them to finish off a load of quilts that needed doing by Christmas and I really missed being able to just pick it up and do a bit whenever I felt like it.
    I've just started a new one that is similar to the snail trail one above, but I designed it myself. I used the design sheets that are available for free on the paper pieces website and just coloured them in until I found a design that I really liked :-)

    Bonnie Hunter works on a large hexagon hand project as she travels. Put hexagon quilt into the search bar at www.quiltville.blogspot.ca

    Also search on Google to see photos of hexagon quilts. I have seen some interesting patterns posted on this site.
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort
