epp Hand sewing hexies

Two english paper piecing (EPP) projects – Video tutorial

Well, here you have 2 EPP projects you may enjoy making.

The heart shapes are quite large whereas the hexagon shapes are quite small.

The napkin project is also a good way to get into EPP.  You can make just a few hexies and then asses whether you enjoy it or not.

The tutorial also demonstrates how to appliqué – the hexies are appliquéd to the napkins.

Printing the shapes

I recommend printing these shapes on thick card stock for better results.

Fabric collections

For the hearts I used two beautiful Michael Miller collections:

For the napkin project you can use ready made napkins  instead of making them from scratch.

Embellishing with EPP video tutorial

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
