Ready to learn English Paper Piecing...Hillbilly style?
This will be a very slow process.
I don't have a blog project planned for now.
(Although if there is interest along the way, let me know and I will plan one!)
English paper piecing has been a hot topic in blog land.
Mostly because of the little hexie flowers.
I shared with you that, although I like the flowers,
they may not be my thing...with ONE exception...
I LOVE the hexie flowers that are fussy cut.
("Fussy cut" means to specifically cut a section of the fabric so a certain design shows up on the flower.)
I have asked Linda From Stray Stitches if she would allow me to share some of her finished hexie flowers.
She does such a cute job of them!
(Actually I love her blog. She really puts alot of thought into each post. You should pop over and visit if you don't follow her already. She is really interesting, and covers so much more than just quilting!)
These first two are non-fussy cut flowers:
And here are some of her fussy cut flowers.
(Yep, I gotta make some of these someday!)
English paper piecing does not stop with Hexagon shapes!!!
Here are some other shapes that I am working on:
I actually am working on a project that might take me quite a while to do,
but I am enjoying working on it in the car and such.
I have done some trial and error things by way of learning that of course I want to share with you.
Next week I will do a list of resources and some more ideas,
then the week after I will get more into techniques.
