Welcome to Week 15 ~ Stitch Sew & Show
I have been getting back to my sew-at-home fun this week.
My first focus was my
I am looking forward to visiting all of today's links.
I love to make useful things from my stash
and there is sew much creativity.
I have also picked up and old project and made a plan.
While I was away I hand sewed more hexagon flowers using this
"Not Your Grandmother's English Paper Piecing" method for making my hexies:
Cindy is a one of my first online quilty friends.
When she posted this tutorial in 2009, I had never even considered EPP.
These easy folded hexagons are so relaxing to sew.
At some point I learned to EPP and put these aside.
I think I thought they were "not good enough."
I know the EPP Quilt Police may not approve.
When I compare the ones I sewed using this folded method
to the ones I have made with papers,
I believe they are just "as good" if not better.
I am now happily sewing more "Tuna Can Hexagon Flowers"
and have fabrics and a plan for a quilt!
I have long admired the colorful quilts that I have seen in the
and will be making my own version of this with my hexagon flowers.
I am going to cut some diamonds today and start my quilt!
What are you working on today?
Please share in my linky party.
Thanks to all who join in the fun!
