Pudge, if you can find a book by Pat Campbell called "Jacobean Applique, her instructions are excellent and she is a masterful teacher. She uses the needle turn method which means you do the work only once instead of basting each piece or gluing each piece before you can applique. It is much easier to do, IMHO.

Stunning! Great runner. I would love to make this pattern right after all the quilted ornaments I'm working on for Christmas. Thanks for sharing.

I love hexies. this summer I made a queen sized 1" hex quilt in a gfg pattern. My son had my car for school, so I did the quilt in the time i'd be driving. I use the fiskers punch and political junk mail. I like the shiney leaflets best. otherwise, I use used manila folders, and use a drop of glue stick to glue it to the fabrics before cutting out. I baste quickly and pop them all together. I've also done 3/4" hexes, again using a Fiskers punch, one for my cat and one for the top of my queen sized bed. that one was done in a pyramid design. one on top of two. Please show us your work as you do it.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]535349[/ATTACH]I bought my first pack of 1 inch hexies and that was all it took to get me addicted. I bought a Fiskers 1 inch paper punch from Joanns with a discount coupon and a bunch of the cheesiest white paper crafting card stock and made my own. I suggest that you buy the acrylic template for cutting you fabric. Sue Daley has one, but she only uses 1/4 seam allowance and I found that that to be too small. There is another brand that I think is called Paper Pieces and all their seam allowances are 3/8 and is much easier when using a glue stick. You will get the best results if you use a 10 millers needle (Sue Daley brand) and a thinner thread. My LQS sells bobbins of fine thread just for English Paper Piecing. I made this for my sister's birthday.
