Fat Quarter Shop recently hosted a English paper piecing (EPP) sew along on Instagram. (#fatquartershop #eppsewalong).
I have always enjoyed seeing people make something with hexis. I am in awe by this quilt from the blog Den syende himmel. 5,200 hexigons! It is amazing to watch her progress.
This was the first time I actually tried to any EPP. Although I didn't quite know what I was doing, it was great fun. I used thread - not glue - to sew the fabric to the paper. Loved having a hand work project to do while watching tv.
I've removed most of the paper pieces from the back. I need to finish that and sew it to background fabric. That will take a lot of pins and patience. Any tips for me on this?
The fabric came from a charm pack of a Moda Kate Spain fabric line. I bought my EPP here at Fat Quarter Shop (of course!)
