Stitch Sew & Show ~ Week 15 ~ Hexagon Flowers Quilt

 


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 

My Post for the In the Kitchen Stitchin' Blog Hop

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:

Tuna Can Hexagon Flowers by Cindy Prince @ Q&N

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.

No papers. 

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 

Kingfisher Stitch-Along @ Stitched in Color 

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!

All hexies are good hexies. So fun to make them different ways.

I have three hexie projects on the go right now - one needs it's borders, one needs laying out to see how many more to make, and the other is a start.
