    Haven't done any EPP, but your picture just might entice me to give it a whirl.

    I've just started, using 2/3" hexagons to make a blue, white & yellow quilt. My original intention was to make a bed quilt, but that's subject to change. I do enjoy it, though, and it's a great portable project.

    There are some free patterns here: http://paperpieces.com/contents/en-us/d30.html


    if you just search for hexagon quilting on the internet you can come up with a lot of sites to review. They are very popular right now and there are quilt groups of only hexagon sewers.

    I just started EPP a few weeks ago and haven't finished my project yet. I'm making a table runner with three flowers across. Standard design using 1-inch hexes.

    Love your design!

    Thanks, quiltlady, for the link.

    You can also google "free graph paper" for doodling before you start. (Yes they have hexagons too!)
