English paper piecing




Well, I'm hooked.  Previously I was making hexagons using 'tuna can method' I learned from http://www.thequiltandneedle.com/tutorials.asp and will continue these too since the way I do them you don't need to have backing (or batting!)--see back side of one below pic of lots

Got a free paper piecing 'kit' with 3/4" hexies from Blank quilting/Paper pieces (http://www.paperpieces.com/) and have gotten hooked.  Have made lots of 'flowers' and some diamonds to applique on other projects (making 28 1800s blue/brown/tan flowers to put in border of simplbe one patch quilt of same fabrics)have bought a 'kit' (table runner with axeheads/apple cores, 1" hexies and leaves) and  packages of 3/4" and 1" hexies.  Now I want to make the Hexagon Puzzel that I just saw on http://sarahdidit.blogspot.com/search/label/hexiePuzzle
WOW!

Your hexies look great and I just checked out your tuna can method. It's amazing! I can't wait to try it :)
