    Absolutely gorgeous blocks. I have never seen so many different shapes using the hexigons/paper piecing. I just cut out a bunch of 2.5" squares to do hexigons, but haven't started yet. I may have to check into those patterns! Looks like lots of fun and very different. I love it.

    I'm with dakotamaid, please share them here so we can follow without searching through all the new posts Just wondering do you have to purchase all the pieces or are there printable templates from Pattern Pastiche? Curious to know if the subscription fee will cover or if I'd need to order things to get started, weighing options before I jump in head first!

    Beautiful! I am an EPPer from way back. In fact that is how I learned/started my "quilting journey", then of course I stumbled upon the American way and now I enjoy both forms of the craft. You know EPP is addictive....once you get going, you won't stop and you will get very antsy if you end up in a waiting room or holed up in an airport without your "hexies".

    the (templates) are available from the website- there is also graph paper for the shapes you can print off- & use to make your shapes any size you need....you can purchase the pieces from PaperPieces.com- (i already had most of the ones i needed- and ordered a couple additional- because to me it's worth it) but you are not required to order them- you can print off the sheets & make your own if you want to take the time- and i think alot of the people participating are doing just that....it would be great for some of you to join in- then we could see different color combo's along with mine

    Those are beautiful. I haven't attempted epp yet but so many women at our guilds do. they make it look so easy not sure if my eyes would handle it. This week at one of them we are having a demo by one of our members so I am looking forward to it.

    thanks all- i am starting to get a little faster i think- actually finished 2 today & cut out two more so will try to get them done tomorrow- if i do i will take a pic of the next 5 (finished one last night watching the home-run derby) i think i will try to take pics of 4 or 5 at a time instead of individuals- takes too long & takes up too much space to post them one at a time
    so, anyhow- more coming- i'm only about 17 behind now...of course she may post 2 or 3 more by the time i get home tomorrow.... oh well, i'm not going to worry about it- i'm just going to keep (stitching away)

    Where did you learn to put them together like that? I love your hexagons outlined with diamonds and triangles.

    i am following patterns from a workshop called - Dear me, I'm going to pieces---from Pattern Penache- a free (benifit) when you subscribe to the on line quilting magazine called 'Quilt Patterns Magazine' there are quite a few group activities
    on page 2 of this topic the designer of the workshop (chimed in) & commented about mine- she also posted a link to the magazine.
    it is great fun to see all the different shapes she comes up with to challenge us with these- i love English Paper Piecing and this is taking it to a whole new level for me.
