Yes!
I started one about 5 years ago. It's not finished but a fun project for movie watching, etc.
Yours looks great! It's fun, isn't it?

I haven't gotten mine out in awhile but it's not exactly a GFG. It's just random- still pretty though.

I have always admired English Paper Piecing but have never had the courage to try it. My hand sewing skills are basic beyond some fiddly embroidery stiches.

Looking good! Hand work is always enjoyable for me but I have not tackled a large EPP project.

Logcabin- maybe you can answer this question.
How do you finish them? I'm assuming using a bias binding? I honestly have never seen a GFG that I can recall.
Thanks

I love doing EPP while watching tv or to take while travelling. I have so many hexies, but have always been intimidated by making a huge quilt out of all the 1" pieces. Here's an example of what I am turning mine into (but what to do with them now?). And yes, so much fun!

Those owls are really cute!
Mine are larger hexies. I'd say about 3 or 4 inches. Now I want to get them out and make some more!
I probably have half a quilt worth done.

beautiful owls

I am having fun too. I started for something to do when we went to South Africa 2 years ago with the long flights and waiting time in different airports. Now, what to do with them? They are 1/2 inch.
Now I realize I should have make them a lot bigger lolll
how will I quilt them? etc
Now and since the pandemia started it became a TV time project.and kind of designing as I go. I have no idea how big it will get.
but it is so much fun I don't really care. They might end up as appliquťs for grocery bags

I have not posted any pictures yet so I don't know if it will work but I'll try

There’s no such thing as ( Too much Fun) when it comes to stitching. 🤗
