I have a few more done than I did -- should I admit it? -- a year ago.
By the way, there is a great tutorial on Connecting Threads for English Paper Piecing. You can also order the papers from them.
My design came from an old magazine, but the photo shown is exactly the same. I'm using a hexagon shape for mine.
I had Karl make me a template from wood and I use that to trace the patterns onto cardstock. I do have a master sheet too but keep the template handy in case I forget to run shapes off. I also use my hole punch to give me a hole right in the centre
I cut out my background fabric yesterday into 6" squares so they will finish up at 5 1/2". I have no idea how many I will make ~~ I have lots of fabric for it ~~ I have 20 squares cut so far.
The quilt may be made on point
I use a small zig-zag to machine applique them with thread that matches. So far so good on the thread. I'm using 30's fabrics for the whole thing. I have a good stash and I told myself no new fabric til some of the old stuff is gone.
Tomorrow? Wait til you see what I did with my knitting needles.......................
