during the end of last week, i came down with an awful stomach bug, and i didn't sew for 3 whole days. needless to say by Saturday, i needed to do a little stitching.
well earlier in the week i had gotten this mini all prepped and ready for quilting. so all i had to do was sit down at my machine and start quilting. and after feeling like crap and sleeping away most of the day, it was nice to sit behind my machine again.
plus it was nice to finally use these hexies for something. i basted these last summer and have since just sat in a pouch waiting for me to do something. these hexies helped kick start my love of english paper piecing.
i made these hexies using Sewing Box by Gina Martin for Moda Fabrics. i picked up a mini charm pack ages ago so it is nice to finally see them out and on display in my sewing room.
my love of epp has been officially sealed. this is just the perfect project for the summer months when my girls want to live outside. now i just need to prep my next project!
do you enjoy epp and if so what has been your favorite project, i need some ideas of what to do!
Pattern: Modern Hexies
Dimensions: 7 inches x 21 inches

Beautiful hexes! Did you hand or glue baste for this?ReplyDelete
Forgot to mention I have La Passacagalia going now, but it is languishing. Hope to resurrect it from the pile soon.ReplyDelete
I love this quilt! I am forever doing some form of EPP and I'm pretty sure I have some hexies basted which would look nice for a project like yours. I'm working on Smitten and a Thirties Hexagon quilt right now. I always have a hand piecing project ready to be picked up--this time I have several. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Very pretty, I love the long layout for this mini, perfect finish!ReplyDelete
Beautiful. I love this technique, it has the beauty of hexes without all the hand sewingReplyDelete
I love how well your quilting complements this pattern. It's a gorgeous little piece!ReplyDelete
