Have a skirt that's just a little too short? English paper piecing can help! (Really!) Lengthen a hemline in true stitcher style with 60-degree diamond EPP.
Hello, hexie lovers! I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite thing to make: the giant hexie flower lap quilt. (Also affectionately known around my apartment as the big-ass hexie quilt.)
Seven blocks. English paper piecing. Can be hand or machine quilted. No squaring, no fuss.
Finished dimensions: About 41½" x 41½".
This project is part of the 12 Hexies (or Less) Blog Hop, generously organized by my pal Diane from CraftyPod. You can read more about the hop here, then scroll down to the bottom of this post to see more projects.
Fact: AccuQuilt’s new English Paper Piecing Hexagon Dies are currently my favorite tools in the craft studio. I mean, cutting perfectly matched fabric pieces AND paper templates at the same time? Goodness, yes!
Available in both a ½" size and a 1" size, the AccuQuilt English paper piecing dies basically take the ease of buying pre-cut packs of EPP templates and pre-cut packs of fabric shapes and applies that same simplicity and convenience to your own fabric stash. I love that, in one step, I can cut out as many or as few hexies and paper templates as I need for a project, and I never need to pull out my rotary cutter or ruler!
